      Gee, Dennis, that's great! I have two bugs -- the 1956
      Presentation and a Lionel J-36 -- ands my wife thinks that's one too many! :-)

      Do you get display cases and the like for them? My
      Presentation came in a plexiglass case, but of course the Lionel did not.

        Hi, Earl and All -

        Hobby stores like Hobby Lobby sell plastic display cases for model cars. They have one size that fits most bugs, looks pretty nice, and costs (I beleive) less than $10. Maybe the J-36 would like it!

          Earl and the Group,

          I tried one of my Nascar model cases on my bugs and they work great.
          I looked online for some suppliers and got these URL's:

          http://store.casesforcollectibles.com/9xmirbac18.html
          http://www.hobbylinc.com/prods/skg_tes.htm
          http://commerce.idmi.net/ecommerce/catalog_detail.asp?
          CID=123&CI=405&PI=7832

          My case has a mirror on the back and the key looks really good in
          that one. A little more than $10 but nice.

          Thanks for thinking about that, it's a good idea.

          73,

          Don, NN8B

            Wow, I wouldn't have thought of that in a million
            years! But it sounds like a nice thing to do, so I guess I'll head
            down to Hobby Lobby in a few and see what I can find.

              So I went down to Hobby Lobby and took a look at what they
              had. In the end, I decided the Lionel just doesn't need a case. Here's why --

              This particular Lionel bug is NOT pristine, has NOT been
              restored, indeed it looks like a tool and not a showpiece. I finally
              decided that putting it in a display case would be akin to putting a
              ball peen hammer in a display case. Better to just treat it as a
              tool and USE it! :-)

              If I ever get the gumption to refinish it and make it look
              marvelous, I just might spring for a case -- but not right now, it
              would just be a little out of character.
