Modification to Showcase Express display cases
The end caps that come with the display case are wide enough that they stop the clear insert from sliding out, see red arrow in photo. For my purposes I would like to be able to slide the insert out without having to remove the end cap.
The end caps for the N scale sized display are about 1.23 inches wide and I determined that removing about .1 inch was enough. This is done on the edge of the end cap that would be facing outward.
After the width was reduced the edge on both sides were de-burred with a hobby knife run back and forth.
The last step was to polish the new edge with some plastic scratch remover I use for control panels.
