I have two drawer organizers for my 15mm miniature collection:

However, these are far from ideal for carrying minis around, as they are rickety and the minis are loose in them.

So what I'm looking for are storage trays plus foam such as discussed HERE, or any similar cheap but sturdy way to carry my minis around.

Suggestions would be appreciated!

One note: I need either something which is available for purchase here in Israel, or which could be ordered here from an international site. My budget is quite tight so I'm looking for something cheap and effective.

Have you tried one of those carrying cases for Matchbox(tm) cars? They are about the size of a small briefcase and have a couple of racks of plastic holders. You could put foam in each holder for the minis.

It MIGHT be sturdy enough.

Double sided tack tape. The kind used by an Architect to hold down paper/drawings on the table.
Get and use the temp holding tape. If you use the tiger/strong hold tape, once you put them in you will not be taking them out with that tape.


Flat magnet sheets. Cut to the sizeof the draw bottom, then put a small bit of iron on the bottom of the base. (much more expensive than the double sided tape.)

Sheet magnet, as Dave suggests.

That's what I use to transport my miniatures around.

You put ferrous metal washers on the bottom of your miniatures bases. This has the advantage of making your miniatures more stable normally as well.
