ok men so how many of you keep your boxes or trash them

i keep them just to put spare crap in them

I throw mine out. My wife won't let me devote too much space to my hobby and I therefore have to make some sacrifices. It would be nice to keep them though - some of the box artwork is good.

Yah I keep mine - There's always misc. leftover parts which sometimes come in handy when building other kits, so I keep them in the boxes too.

I keep only the front of the box the rest i thrash. i keep them as a record of my builds and to show people just how much of a change i do the some of my kits. and then some of the box covers are so nice i hang them up on my wall. :)

i cut the picture out and put the completed model on the picture. i have a tendancy to modify them as i get ideas. i keep the bottom part of the boxes for storage. the rest i trash.

I keep the box top with the cover art and hang them on the wall above the built model itself. Takes a lot space though. I've only built about 10, and I'm running out of room.
