Handy way to look after those screws

Post  brian on Mon Sep 22, 2014 4:54 pm

Picked up this trick from watching wheeler dealers earlier in the summer. Im constantly loosing pieces and screws for models so this has been invaluable to me. Ive been using this piece of cardboard for 4 mk2 builds at this stage and havnt lost a screw yet. Because they are also labeled its easy to find the correct one when putting the model back together.

But we'd lose the fun of crawling on the floor looking for that elusive bit of metal, never mind the pain in the back and knees that goes with it. Laughing

A marvellous idea, that, Brian.

I'd seen it on Wheeler Dealers as well (what a superb series that is!!) but hadn't thought to use it for model making..... until now! sunny

Thanks for the suggestion. Top man

Cheers, Steve

I often have screws left over too, especially when repairing laptops/pcs etc. Can never seem to find where they all go back in. Ive also resorted to using clear zipper sandwich bags to store the parts I take off the models. Seems to help keep everything together and stops clear parts getting scratched

Wish I had done this when I took a GSM Evo X apart over 4 years ago. Theres so many parts Ive forgotten what goes where but I think everything is still there. Its all in an old biscuit box so it must have been christmas Very Happy
