If you get small sub assemblies for handed parts, it can be useful to label them so they don't get mixed up. But if they're small you can't put a label on so ....

I suspect there may be summat about grandmothers and eggs here somewhere but it may help someone.

I forgot to say that my pieces are clamped while the glue is drying but you could use clamps as labels any time.

I put them in small plastic dishes labelled Port and Starboard. The dishes were from a lady handing out samples of something edible at Tesco's - I told her I could use the dishes and she gave me about 50 of them! For larger parts, old margarine tubs are good.

I put mine in some little plastic trays I scrounged of the pest control chap when he did a routine visit to my farm. They use them for putting bait in.

For parts that I’ll be fitting straight away, I simply tend to put the ones for the right side on the right and those for the left side, on the left on my workbench. For ones that I may have around for a while, like assembled track runs for a tank, I usually put them on the corresponding sides of the open box that the model also sits in (next to my workbench) between working on it.
