Scenic storage question was created by gibbs
I've been having a play around with the scenic stuff I bought the other day but I'm trying to work out the best way to store it as the bags are not ideal as any slight airflow seems to make the stuff work it's way out of the bag any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

I use Ziplock bags (I think we call them Glad bags over here) Get larger ones that the current ones so that you can send all the material to the bottom, squeeze all the air out and then lock them up. I then put them in to plastic boxes (either old ice cream boxes or ones from the $2 shop).

Yup, What Gary said. Big Zip-lock bags.

I store mine in old Large shoe boxes.

I'm actually thinking about writing to some of these various scenics manufacturers and suggest that they package their products in zip-lock bags from the beginning. It would certainly make life so much easier for their users.

I'm pretty impressed with everything I have used so far on my dio tho . . . :cheer:

Revell 1/24 '77 GMC Sierra 1500 4x4 - getting the "Mad-Maxed" treatment - moving to the "Diorama" GB

If your talking Woodland Scenics, you can also use storage cylinders from the craft store...plastic with clear plastic lids. You can but them in a package that has different sizes. They work great for me.

I've come across a great the scenic material storage system - out of the packet on the baseboards and model trees B)

It's not too messy just as along as you use strong glue :)

That's a good point....just about any plastic coffee container would work. Also, look into recycling the larger kitchen herb bottles...most have the shaker-style lids.
