    Do any of you guys keep your boxes or packaging?

    Personally, I don't have any that I keep in the boxes, and some of the boxes from the AutoArt's I keep. But I don't see myself selling any of them anytime soon or even for a profit/breaking even, so I don't really see why I would. But I'm curious... do you?

    I keep them. But only because I don't have enough room to display them all. So some of them have to live in their boxes for now until I get a bigger place in the future.

    I keep them since I plan on moving next year. Makes it easier on the movers and my confidence. Once I am settled in my "final" house, I don't think I will keep the boxes of models on display.

    I've never kept any of the boxes but I probably should have. I am moving later this year and I know they would have come in handy.

    They are in a big box in the attic over the garage of my EX WIFE's house!

    Some of 'em blew out of the truck during the move, and they are still out there! Shoulda seen the cars scatter!

    No I ditch them.Thats the equivalent of having a Ferrari and never driving it.I like to pick the model up from time to time when I'm reading about its history,open the hood,doors,etc...The only ones I keep the cars in are the 1/43's,so I can stack them when displaying them,but even those the lids come off.I also have the F1 championship winners from diecastlegends that come in thier own display case/plaque.

    I take all of my models out of their boxes and display them. The boxes I have in my storage building.
