The only advice I can give you is to base the measurements on the size of statues you want to display on the shelves, if your going 1/3 scale then I would set them for 46", if it's only 1/4 scale then 32" should be fine and if it's 1:6 then you could easily get away with 24" tall shelves.

I base those measurements on some of the tallest statues for each scale I can think of, Prime 1 Superman is like 44", XM Dark Phoenix is like 29" and some of the taller 1:6 scale statues can be around 20"..

Given not all statues will be super tall, you could just do a few tall ones in the center and then smaller ones on both sides.

Yeah it's a mixture of 1/4 and 1/6. I don't buy 1/3 pieces.

For custom build shelving, that seems like a good price.

Especially if you can have him design it so that you can having lighting in there that is easy to set up and hide the wires.

I agree that pricing seems reasonable.

Also, a great point about lighting. Don't cheap out on light as you will regret it, especially with black shelves.

I also highly recommend adjustable shelves for max display options and less dead space

Good luck, can't wait to see what you have built.

I was gonna go with fixed shelves to make them more sturdy. I'd like to have adjustable shelves but I'm scared of the shelves bowing in the middle.

gotcha. I use professional level glass and smaller sections so that there aren't a ton of statues on each shelf. I have found the flexibility to be awesome.

Can't wait to see what you get built.
