MiG Alley / Bag the MiG Storage




I've found a nifty solution to the storage of the magnet based 1/600th scale planes for my MiG Alley / Bag the MiG project. These are maths set tins from Sainsburys which are only three quid each, with the pencils, rulers, set squares and protractors distributed to the sprogs. Each tin holds four squadrons of aircraft stuck on the base and on the underside of the lid. I can easily organise them into USAF, USN, NKAF and so on, with a couple of tins for some of the larger contingents. Also, because they are full of tiny magnets they actually stick together in a stack, so easy to transport without sliding around inside the plastic storage box I'm using for the project. They also have hinged lids so the planes don't drop off, as happens when I used pencil tins with lift off lids. Very handy!

  1. Very handy. Mine are just loose in a tray.

  2. I might tart these up with some labels too, otherwise I have to open them all to find what I want!

  3. Make sure you put a pad inside the box to stabilize the models. Else one good shock, and the pop off and rattle around inside the box ruining you lovely paint job. Just thin layer, foam will keep you models pressed against the metal.
