Whatever you do, do not use millions of tiny polystyrene balls.........ask me how I know.

Great tip, Fritz. Whilst I did use foam when I transported my collection after parting ways with SWMBO, I didn't use toothpicks to stop them sliding about and, seeing this, I really wish I had. Fortunately, most of the breaks that did occur were minor and the vast majority of bits were relocated in the boxes used for transportation. Moreover, I was only moving some 11 km away and transported a box or two each time.

Glad to see you are not departing Planet Earth! And the question you pose yourself re: the whereabouts of a certain He162? Despite looking everywhere after I relocated, a collection of bits I was working on somehow slipped through a wormhole in space, as they are not with SWMBO nor did they make it to my new abode ... :cry:
