£2.75 spent on amazon on a packet of silicon gel crystals after reading this.  Sticking a small packet hidden behind each model and swapping once in a while seems sensible.....!
Look carefully in the packaging of many purchases, including models - there are small bags of silica gel (which is not a gel!) included. I had large numbers of them, until I realised they make a decent coal load for model railways when stained with black ink.
Mine have mostly gone to model railway modellers......  
But then Ireland is probably the country least affected by humidity in the World. Now cold - that's another thing......
