    Hello all, i'm very quickly running out of space to store all my kit, and i was wondering how everyone else stores and/or displays their collection, i'm looking for inspiration to make the most of the space ive got otherwise i might have to start downscaling (something i *really* dont want to have to do!).

    Any and all comments welcome!

    When I was uniform collecting, I had a couple torsos and one mannequin, I'd rotate uniforms on those and then keep the others in closet/boxes

    Hi George!

    We have a full section devoted to this thorny topic. You can view all the posts here:

    I've moved your thread to this area. There's lots of good ideas and pictures of what solutions people have come up with. It is definitely a no-one-idea-fits-all-needs area of collecting.

    Years ago I took some time to write down my experiences with building storage/display areas for my collection, complete with dimensional and materials suggestions:
