Another modeling supply we can steal from SWAMBO! I use them to store small parts and sub assemblies when I'm building a model.

I need all the help I can get when it comes to being organized. And, I loose fewer parts.

When I put a model "first aid" kit together for travel I always put and liquids into ziplocs to avoid leaks. Even on short trips to local stuff it has saved a couple of major ooopppsss. . .

I "ziploc" parts in the boxes after opening/fondling ...

 

I like clear plastic trays & lids that snacks come in to hold parts, sub-assemblies, etc while working and then I put a lid on them if I haul 'em to club meetings or push them off to the side for a while ...

Ziplocs also work great for storing decals...especially when you don't want them to get paint/water/drool on them.

 

I've put old yellowed decals in a Ziploc bag, and taped them to a south or southwestern facing window...with the decals facing outward (the sealed bag protects them from any potential condensation contamination). The sunlight will bleach out the yellow in a few days.

The extra large zip-lock baggies (gallon size) can be used to help prevent pe-parts being lost. Just put the fret inside the bag and cut your part off in there....if it does fly off the fret it'll still end up in the baggie!

I put my 1/72 models in a ziploc freezer bag until I can arrange them in my cabinet to keep dust off. :smiley16:

 

I might just have to try that. Gonna need about 150 boxes of them though....
