Acrylic Plastic Model Display Case Review

Hi there :)

I've just got this interesting Acrylic plastic display case from my friend, Ascentic, and I can't wait to post a review on this case...

Manufacturer: QY (China Brand)
Dimension: 21.5 x 21 x 26 cm (enough to fit an MG as tall as Sinanju)
Price: RM50 COD (Email to me at
Availability: Limited stock, 1st come 1st serve

Open Box

The box is quite thin, but it pack some weight due to the 5 pieces of acrylic plastics board. The boards are individually packed to prevent scratches during transit, but there would still be some non-obvious scratches here and there which is not noticeable once assembled.

Lighting Effect

The case comes with 2 lights... one in blue, and the other flashing rainbow light powered by 2 AAA batteries (not included).


It is pretty easy to assemble the case...
  1. Set up the base;
  2. Set up the side panels;
  3. Place you kit into the case;
  4. Cover the top panel.

It helps a lot if you have an extra pair of hand, but masking tape would come in handy too if you are short of hand :p

Display Case in Action

For this review, I placed 2 model kits into the case... my MG RX-78NT1, and HGUC Nu-Gundam. As you can see in the following pictures, there are still space available for taller kits like Sinanju and Unicorn :)

The Lighting Switch


The display case, for RM50, is a must-have if you want to showcase your handy work :) Not only limited to Gunpla... you can use this case for any display items you do not want outside interference ;)
