I first acquired a set of these metal drawers 20 years ago - I was clearing out an office and they looked useful! A couple more followed over the years and they are now quite literally part of the furniture of my toy room. The drawers are about 5cm deep, 24cm wide and 35cm long, making them suitable for most scales of toys up to 20mm. Mine are used mostly for 6mm toys, and some have an additional 'floor' built in to make better use of the height.
Some of the (rather scruffy) drawers.
A typical drawer - this one contains 6mm USMC, Saudi and Kuwaiti forces for the 1990/91 Gulf War.
The 'Arab Mech Infantry' drawer. This has two levels. The top one was made from stiff card edged with balsa.
|The bottom deck of the same drawer - balsa blocks in the corners and centre hold up the top level.|
