Okay, you keep the boxes . . .

I just bought a house, and will be moving my collection to it over the next several weeks. I save all my boxes, just for this type of occurence. As I have been retrieving them, and re-boxing the cars, I have come upon a curious situation.


Many of the boxes have model-specific graphics, so it is pretty easy to match them up; however, all of my UT Porsche GT1, Porsche GT2, and McLaren F1 boxes are "generic".


I know most of these models will re-box generically, as well, but I was curious:

Do you mark the model/paint scheme/etc. on your generic boxes, or is it pot-luck when you re-box? I read somewhere that the boxes are marked, somehow, with an identifying number. Can anyone give me some ideas on this? Obviously, marking them before I unboxed them originally is out of the question.

I have also noted the generic nature of some of my UT boxes! Most have an internal insert with the name of the model on them so I haven't had many problems in this way, but neither have I written on them which in hindsight might have been a good idea the last time we moved!

Good luck with the house move BTW!!! :cheers
