More Storage

Here is the inside of the shed with most of the boxes inside. I stacked them 11 boxes high.

Most boxes were in the 5 to 8 pounds range. The heaviest was 18 pounds, it was a lot of lead WWI tanks. The lightest was three, it was a few buildings.

I used to put label tape on the boxes, but it is too small to read from six to ten feet away. The simple 3 X 5 cards seem to be cheaper, and easier to read.

This is a close up of one of the weight stickers. Lightest boxes on top. CAC is Coast Artillery Corps, US Army, WWII era. Can you identify the Roco 155mm Long Toms inside the box?

The two heaviest boxes. They really made some heavy WWI tanks in lead. Akheton and a couple other companies made them, many years ago. I hope this system lasts me at least 40 years. The cardboard boxes did.

Nice work

Even if you get a Massive Storm
the plastic boxes will take it

We had a Storm so severe that our Hall way flooded from the roof
Miniature dam on the roof.

It was lucky i was Home as, all my bookcases started getting rained on.
I lost nothing but very minimal water
damage to some Magazines.
But was i pissed off till i worked out it was all safe. Hundreds of Military based Magazines.



Maybe you send some off to my Blog
i have no one cept the Cat looking at it

Yes, storms don't bother plastic boxes too much.
