Minifig display stand design
Hey guys and gals
First post here so hope it is in the right section.
I am looking at building a minifig display case and am looking for some input from fellow AFOLS. I have already read a bunch of forums (FBTB, Eurobricks, here etc) showing some good designs from the US and here, so yesterday I bought a large IKEA ribba box frame.
I now need to build the internal frame to form the shelves. I was thinking of using something like the plates the CMFs come on (modified 3x4) and these
to allow the minifigs to be slid in and out and easily re-arranged. It would also allow me to move them without handling the minifig itself.
However , this setup only allows the plate to go in one way, and it would leave the row of studs perpendicular to the direction the minifig would be facing. Does anyone have any experience in what I am trying to achieve and/or suggestions on what pieces I could use to achieve this?

You may want to read the following as there are some great examples and many helpful ideas. It helped me
Yes I have read that thanks, it is where I got the idea for the frames from. The part I am most stuck with is lego parts I need to achieve what I am aiming for. But it might be overkill.
Additionally, you won't get a 1 x 4 in there - the deepest you can really achieve is 3 studs and a little wriggle room.
I know it doesn't help you much, but it's just something to consider. Welcome to the forums by the way!
I am thinking now that because the case is NOT front opening, I probably wont be moving parts that often so it is pointless making something that allows me to slide them in and out easily.
Really like the look of the Ribba but is just a pain to open up and change things if need to.
