A couple of years ago I got some small wooden clothes pegs in a "trendy home ware" shop and they have proved invaluable for holding and clamping small parts. However  they were still to large for some parts. So today whilst looking for something completely different in WH Smiths I found these :-

Tiny wooden clothes pegs, obviously intended for Christmas cards, but will come in useful for holding tiny parts whilst I'm painting them.  :thumbsup:

I found something like that a while ago and glued them to pointed bamboo skewers as a handle. I can stick the skewer into a block of foam to hold the part up for spray painting.
Very handy

Medicines are routinely over-packaged and one of Mrs z's comes in a sturdy aluminium tray about 3 inches square.  Ideal for small parts storage during a build and stackable when empty.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I use something similar for the same purpose. Also plastic milk bottle tops are useful for storing small parts and also pallets for paint, once thoroughly washed. Although I prefer the tops from pickle jars etc for pallets.
