  • M2 Storage / Display Dilemma Solved

    After fighting this problem for years. The fact that those M2 acrylic cases aren't designed to stack...maybe the intention was there but it never worked for me. I called the event an "avalanche" when the cases tumble to the floor breaking the cases and sometimes damaging the cars.

    I solved my problem ordering these 3/8" x 1/8" felt protectors from Amazon. There are 1000 per roll at $19.00 so I ordered 4 packs. I have nearly 1000 acrylic cases and 4 per case is required.

    Sticking 4 discs just inboard of the thickness of the plastic is enough to securely stack my M2's. Yeah!

    Congrats on finding a solution to the problem.
    Those small self stick felt pads are a common sight to me, they are basically door bumpers for cabinet doors, so it doesn't make a lot of noise when the door closes. They used to be available at the cabinet supply shop I once got my cabinet fasteners from, in those big rolls like that....It's good to see other uses.

      I love hearing about how others solve their diecast issues. Especially when it comes to storage. I'm still searching for that perfect way to display and store my ever growing collection. Congrats on the solution!
