kagealchemist: A couple questions
Hello everyone. I just joined this site recently and have been enjoying the various topics and posts. I collected LEGOs when I was younger (especially the Star Wars sets), and after finding and rebuilding my old sets my love for LEGO was rekindled. I am now in my mid twenties and collecting them again (...especially the Star Wars sets). Anyways, I have a few questions that I would like some feedback on.
First of all, how do all of you display your built sets? Some of the Star Wars ones that I have like the 6211 Star Destroyer and the 10175 TIE Advanced take up a lot of space. I do not have much space currently available and right now they are sitting on top of book cases. I have many more sets I want to build, like the recent Slave I and Millennium Falcon, but no place for them. What do you guys do with them? I do not want to just store them away.
I have started buying a second copy of some of my favorite sets in order to have one MISB. What do you guys think is the best way to store these? I currently have them in a large plastic storage container. Is this sufficient or should I store them in something else or include something like bubble wrap?
Finally, I got on board the CMF craze recently. I just now finished completing series five and wondered if most people opened and displayed them or kept them sealed. I have been too tempted to open and display the ones I currently have. Do most of you guys open and display them?
I know this is a lot of questions but I would appreciate any feedback! Thanks!

As far as your questions on Displaying and Storing, I'd recommend first using the search box here (or google site specific search) as there are already a lot of great ongoing discussions on both of these topics.
As Yellowcastle mentioned, there are a few discussions about displaying Lego. Here's one with some examples:
I'll post examples of my CMF display on that thread.
