Alas, I have nothing to pile, since ALL of my models and model related goodies are still en route from the U.S. They are... somewhere in the world right now. However, it has gotten me thinking about a pile I'd REALLY rather not see once they do arrive.
The area where we are now living and where we will be making our home for the next 4 (or more) years is prone to... earthquakes. Some people have told us that they happen on a weekly basis - though, so far, we haven't felt one yet. From around the time we first found out we would be living here, I've been wondering what that means for my model horse herd.
I've heard of a product called "Quake Hold" - and I did actually buy a little pack of it before we left home. (I think I'd heard that is what collectors in California use?)
One idea I've seen that I like is something alone these lines:
Since I already have - several - bookshelves coming with everything else, I don't think I would end up building new shelves. Instead my plan would be to modify the shelves I already have and/or fashion some sort of inserts for them if I didn't want to permanently alter the shelves I've got. It's a lot to think about.
I'm really eager for all of our things to arrive and I've very anxious to see how my herd fared on the journey. I'd love to put them all up on display as soon as they arrive, but I think it's going to take bit of planning first.
