Hogwarts Castle -display box or ideas/

Hi
My 13 year old DS got the Hogwarts Castle set for christmas and he has nearly completed building it - he's been working hard on it since boxing day and I think he'd build throughout the night if I let him!
Just wondering if anyone has this set? and if so, where do you keep it? I'd be grateful of any ideas. I've seen the display box online for it, but it costs 120! I wouldn't mind paying for a glass display cabinet but can't seem to find any the right size. Or is the display box the only way to go? He has a little sister age 3, and although she's been very good so far letting him build it downstairs and not messing with the pieces, I think if we had it open on the sideboard that temptation to mess with it would become too much for her
It's such an amazing set, we'd love to display it downstairs, in the hall, living or dining room.
Thanks

Was just going to suggest the idisplayit display box... they are acrylic, expensive (132) , but are really well made - we have one for another model (which was considerably cheaper - but so was the lego! )- Wall-e which sits on the dresser in DDs room.

We are still building the Hogwarts and will go for a display box to put on the sideboard. (and hopefully a post-build light set which will probably end up costing the same or more from Brickstuff.com - they are currently in development - their lighting kits are really showstopping, can't wait... but I have to...)

Thanks I will end up buying the display box probably - I've just sat it on the sideboard for now (keeping a careful eye on our 3 year old DD!)

I have mine on a shelf in the living room (next to the Disney castle &#128540 Away from dd 3 and ds 5! Havent quite finished it yet though.
Just need to dust it every now and then. I also have a little set of battery operated lights in the castle which look very good.
We will have to get one of the coffee tables for dhs MF

If you don't mind me asking - where did you get your shelf? All the ones I've seen aren't big enough

Ours arent big enough really, it hangs off a little bit.
Ikea floating shelves, they were there before I got the castle and we rotate what sets we have on them.
But you could just make your own and get shelf brackets.
