    I was wondering, how do you guys keep your various models & whatever scenery you have clean? Especially stationary scenery or the models you don't use that much tend to gather dust at an alarming rate. And given their small size and how fragile they tend to be getting the dust of tends to be a pain.

    So how do you guys do it?

    I keep mine in plastic drawer units, but they can still get dusty, I use the airbrush with no paint in to blow them clean.

    Wrapping them in bubble wrap keeps the dust off but it's a complete pain, ones I don't use a lot are stored in GW cases.

    I keep them in a cupboard.
    And if they are a bit dusty I just blow the dust off. That's it.

    Well right now I just keep them in a carrying case too... dust is annoying if they are left out.

    Ultimately the goal is one of these! But until I get to a more permanent home location, boxes will have to do.

    Sadly I don't have the space for one of those :(

    And yea, it's mostly just that certain models seem to collect a lot of dust quickly, and I do like to display them which makes cases uninteresting.

    I would love a display cabinet and I'm slowly working on the wife to allow one, it will have to be pretty big to fit all my models in :)
