Minifigure collectors have resorted to Ikea’s Ribba frames to house their collections as they provide a cheap and easy way to protect and display them at the same time.
So it is really cool to see Liqiwei2000‘s LEGO Architecture skyline collection all framed up in Ikea’s new Kasseby display boxes. The frames have an internal dimension of 41.5cm wide , 24.5cm high and a depth of 5.5cm.
As most LEGO Architecture skylines are about 3- 5 studs deep which most would fit the 5.5cm of the frame’s depth.
However, the Sydney and London skylines are 6cm and 8cm deep respectively so a little bit of modding is requited to fit them into the Kasseby’s frame but as you can see, they still look really picturesque.
The tallest point of the New York City skyline is the One World Trade Centre which stands at 25cm tall so you would need to swap the antenna out for a shorter 3L LBG bar for it to fit the frame.
Other than that, the rest of the skylines should fit right in after completion. What I like about these frames is that they are quite versatile. They can be aligned in a portrait orientation for taller builds if need be.
The frames can be placed in the hall or even along the stairs to the second level which definitely adds to the interior decoration of the home and may make your LEGO collection a little more palatable to your significant other.
