Thanks, useful review. I have a couple of the Testor clear cases and they are really handy. They are almost big enough for a small vignette.

Thanks for the review, Bret.

On the strength of that, I'm going to get one to try them out.

I've been using these types of cases for quite awhile from various manufactures. They certainly do a lot to cut down on dust and damage to finished pieces.
Haven't seen the Revel ones locally, but will add one or two to the supply locker when they pop up at the local hobby shop.

Good idea and at a fair price. I wonder if they will expand the range to include much larger models - trucks, ships, aircraft etc......

Good review and a good price. I'm not crazy about the large sink hole on top but the price makes up for it.
