Another "why did I never think of that" moment for me.

If your assembly went anything like mine, you were too busy chasing down AWOL troopers hiding under furniture to have time to think of it.

Infantry, turrets, jet engines...what gets me is that I keep a Mega Bloks box around for Lego-style building toys, but I never thought to use it for miniatures. Herp a derp.

If you've ever assembled MicroTrains Z scale couplers with tiny springs and slippery delrin plastic that will learn you all about the magic of big box lids and grip to release tweezers!

You aren't kidding about that. Those tweezers are fantastic for all kinds of small work.

I've never assembled the Z scale ones, but I've done quite a number of MicroTrains N scale couplers, along with the little springs that go in the truck wheelset bearings. Suitable containment is essential!

I have several grip-to-release forceps- old, heavy ones (wish I could find more), and have used them everything from assembly & painting, to folding paper & heat sinks for soldering electronic components.

I did pretty good with the first Set 2 minis I built. Only launched one LGEV engine when i fumbled it while picking up the assembly to glue it. Found it pretty easily, though.
