More Toy Soldier Storage Solutions - plastic drawers

Given the degree of interest shown in my posts on my box file storage and transport project, I have taken some photos of the units I use for some other toys. 
I first discovered these plastic drawer units in a DIY store in the 1980s and now use quite a few of them to store various toys, including 1/600 ships, some 6mm 'Modern' kit, and my 6mm Great War figures.
The units are about 21x17x17cm.  This is the unit used to store my Great War Germans.
The drawers are just the right size for my fleet of 1/6000 scale ships.
The labelling project is gradually spreading to these units!
Some of the individual drawers are labelled using a Brother label making device I use in the office for making file labels.
The drawers are a handy size to accommodate units for some of the games I regularly play.  This pair of drawers contains the whole of German III Corps for Op14.

Carry on, always interested in other approaches to storage.

I use those, and plastic tubs with air seal leds myself.

Good one...I´m really going to have to look into getting some sort of storage boxes for my lot.

Indeed - one can always benefit from someone else's mistakes!

I take the view that it's worth putting a bit of resource into storage and transport - especially bearing in mind time time and money we devote to the contents!

now that I have a new computer....will do!

This is very helpful - thanks. I'm currently redoing all my storage solutions and seeing what others have done helps get ideas etc.

Ah - I thought you'd been a bit quiet recently.

No point 'reinventing the wheel' when you can steal other peoples' ideas! Help yourself.
