@dinotoyforum  You have a very varied and very beautiful collection, I see all the brands of toy dinosaurs that exist in the market apart from seeing magnificent resin figures. It is a very cool collection. I congratulate you.

As for the dust on the figures, it also happens to me. Cleaning my endless figures is a daily struggle. When some figures are clean, others have just been filled with dust.

Thanks @Shonisaurus  ^-^

My collection has grown a bit since I took those photos. At the moment it is still in storage following my house move last year, but soon I will be able to unbox everything and put it all on display properly.

I'll be buying some dedicated display cabinets to help solve the dust problem. I may even get some bespoke display cabinets if I can't find something ready made to suit my needs.

Cabinets will improve your dust problem. But they won’t eradicate it, in my experience. My custom-made cabinets have good close-fitting doors but plenty of dust sneaks in, especially after redecorating another room (plaster dust!) You should have seen my duster yesterday when I tackled a couple of shelves!

Agree.
Almost all my collection stands in cabinets but dust is still a problem..  >:(

You are rowing in a mighty large boat , a problem with which we all wrestle. Hence, the old adages, "Lay not your treasure up where rust and moth doth corrupt" or in another context, "sic transit gloria." But we do persist, don't we, endeavoring to freeze the "nunc fluens" into the "nunc stans."

After nearly six years sleeping, this thread has woke up! Now we all wait for your "new" collection after its setup.

I'm considering something snazzy. https://www.shelvingmegastore.com/browse/285-display-cabinets/371-dust-proof-display-cabinets

The main reason for the delay is that I need to sort out some building works and basics in our house, first: damp-proofing, carpets, rewiring. I don't want to put my collection on display only to have to move/pack it shortly thereafter. We are way behind our planned schedule, partly because more needed doing than we expected, and partly as a consequence of Covid19 lockdown. But these are minor quibbles in the grand scheme of things.

Even as I typed, I was thinking that museum cabinets must be much more dust-proof than my cabinets. Those look very elegant too, as well as practical.  I see they even have a display table!  Wouldn’t that be wonderful for a display of the bits and pieces of fossils I have!  Not sure where I would fit it in though...

I think everyone who buys a house always says that more needed doing than they anticipated.

I only have one cabinet (some Ikea black wood thing) but I "sealed" the door by adding sealing tape (as used to seal drafty windows) to the frame of the cabinet. The door needs a little bit more force to be opened and closed than before but dust can only get in if the door is opened. Other than that it is basically air tight.

I was so taken with the idea of the dust-free display table, that I contacted the firm. Sadly they are unable to take orders at present for this line of cabinets as their supplier has not opened “yet” post-Covid. Given that the main target for this line would be for shops, I suspect that they might never re-open.

İf your not busy a wet dustcloth is good for cleaning but the cleaning lots of figurines with wet dustcloth is a lot of work.
