Horizontal on edge, no kits on top of other kits. Labels on each box listing the contents. The few vintage kits are hanging on pegboard, above my rocket workbench. The plan is to build everything eventually, still a possibility at around 100 kits.

Really helps if I see something I want, often I have to check my master listing first to see if I have one already (or 3, etc.).
Manufacturers are in alphabetical order. The kits then have a corresponding bin number which makes them easier to retrieve.


Good grief, that’s a lot of storage bins! I have about 15 I think. But, I have a lot of boxed kits stored between the ceiling joists (floor joists for the main floor above) in my basement shop.

Still, I don’t feel so bad now!

Vertically when possible. Carefully if horizontal.
