If they're clipping when you're "zoomed out" increase the far clip plane. If they're clipping when you're "zoomed in" decrease the near clip plane.

I also recommend using layers to group like objects together and to allow you to quickly toggle visibility.

Can you post a screen capture of the problem? Want to be sure I understand correctly.
