storing and transporting your models
Posted by snapdragonxxx on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 4:26 PM

With the advent that some of my recent builds will end up on manufacturers display later in the year, I have decided that plastic boxes and bubblewrap is not really the ideal way, although it works, damage does occur.

I recently bought a paint storage box from LMG in the Ukraine. It is a well thought out and sturdy box and now all my metal paints are stored in there from both AK Xtreme metals and Vallejo Metal Color ranges.

Aftere looking around what they offered and noticing they did transportation/storage boxes for tanks and small scale aircraft I contacted them and asked if they would do me a couple of boxes for 1/32 aircraft, and hinted that I have some really big stuff.

I told Aleksandr that the boxes were for Zoukei Mura Shinden and K-45. After wrorking out dimensions he sent me these

Shinden box is 340mm 340mm 165mm

Ki-45 box is 400mm x 400mm


I will find out the cost tomorrow and they will be shipped built up and ready to use as a test of the design. I will report back

I would like to know what members think.

Comments and questions welcome.

Ace Ventura "soccering" packages down the street comes to mind.  

Even if that's the case, i think your model will be fine in that vault.  

Cool box.

Thanks for looking in and commenting, Ted.

I will be taking my airbrush to the exterior to add national insignia/flag and the aircraft name/designation and also I may stain and polish the outside for  show and better protection. Making it have a better appearance.
