Hey David, how many valk boxes do you think can be stacked before bowing ensues?

I have some of my doubles bubbled wrapped and stacked, but now I'm worried about the bowing.

mine starting bowing with just 3 valks stack on top. i couldn't see bc they were in bubble wrap. 

my yf-19 boxes you can see them bending with just two items stack on top.

awesome! please post some pics when you're done wrapping =)

 

UPDATE:

I do not mean to raise any unverified concern, but the one thing I have noticed is that none of the valks I own have any yellowing.  None are wrapped to the degree you are going for.  If anything, I just use single sheets of bubble wrap between boxes to avoid scuffing between boxes.

Is there any additional value in sealing a toy for the long term, other than maintaining the integrity of the box's shape? Or will keeping it sealed the way you are showing cause any chemical reactions to "stay trapped" within the box and cause premature damage to the valk?

:unknw:

nope. none of my valks are yellowed and they've been sitting in storage boxed in a closed spaced bubble wrapped.  any mythological chemicals reactions would've happened by now as every yamato and arcadia vf-1 sits  between two plastic trays completely cut off from air. unless you poke holes if your vf-1 trays, there's no difference.  i think there's a lot of myths out there but let's not go into that here. 

the majority i'm using strips which slide off except a few boxes that i want to wrap fully.  

i'm doing this so i can stack my boxes, not protect them, as they lose shape as seen in the comparison photos.

I wouldn't mind hearing about these myths. We can start a new thread if you want to bog this thread down.

did a few more boxes tonight:)

the newer style vf-1 boxes that do not have lids don't need much strips to wrap as you don't have to worry about having a lid.

on the cav's box it's been laying flat for a while and you can see the bends on the side flaps. so i'm going to add minimal reinforcement there:

It's great to see your collection David, very impressive!  You've also made some very good suggestions with regard to storage.  I didn't realize how easily the boxes can bend, I'll need to be more careful in the future.  I really like the way you've displayed the boxes inside of the bookcase, nicely done. B))

I put them all in a bookshelf and looks really cool for me but I was thinking in add some wrapping to the boxes to protect them better

Hey great shelf Darotower =) yeah definitely wrap them,  i can see the  VT-1 box on your shelf already bending in the backm at least tie a thin strip that you can slide on and off easy to keep it in shape

Where is the jaw dropping emoticon on this forum? :lol:

Now I wonder... Is this thread still about Maintaining and Reinforcing? Or it's about showcasing 'Hard-To-Get' Macross stuff? :lol:

By the way, Slave. Here you go...

a lot of both! i wanted to reinforce my boxes and took out all my VF-1's out of storage. last night i wanted to test them out and changed up my display wall.

the wraps work really well and now i don't have to worry about stacking them on top of each other 

bump for new page^_^

 showing off the collection and strength of wrapped boxes:wub::wub::wub:

Where's a good place to pick up some cellophane? Amazon?

hey Old Man, how's it going?  (it looks like these posts got moved to clean up a bare empty site, i guess too many beauty shots.

here's a link to what i ordered from amazon:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M02ASVX/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

 anubis20 ordered a roll and it produced great results for him,

if you try it out, let me know how it goes.

To the Mod or mods/admin, i understand moving the collection pictures but i think the thread is helpful tips with taking care of boxes and should either be moved to a maintenance thread or warrant it's own topic. please consider as it's not just display photos but some info.

 

thanks,

Nice collection! I've been getting some of the weathering versions and only want  the Roy VF-1S at this point.  Unfortunately, the Roy VF-1S is proving a bit hard to find for a decent price.
