Its really not that hard to make them. First you need Acrylic Plexiglass, you can get this from Home Depot or Lowes. Second you need to get IPS Weld-On 4 Cement & Hypo-Type Solvent Cement Applicator, this you will have to find online or see if a hobby store has it. Next you will need something to cut the plexiglass. Then You glue or bond it together. A couple of years ago I got a deal, 50 1:64 scale diecast car display cases for $20 at a flea/farmers market.
