Back to the body and the shuttle cove. Time to box it in

Start by adding styrene sheet

Looks simple until you have to match the other side. There was some slight differences in the sides so I had to build it up again with styrene

Pain in the butt but they 2 sides are very similar now

On the Apprentice The Donald fired 4 people. Woot. Oh yeah boy did these take a long time to do as I had to carve into the recess on both sides to clean up the opening

Yah I am tired of these things.

Went to a football game tonight so not much modeling time. I was also starting to think about the box I am going to put the kit in. It seems a bit silly since I have no kit yet but I would like to have something that when the modeler gets the box they canít help but be excited. Now I have to skirt the issue of using images that are copy write. Images of our BDHs would be nice but I doubt I can use it. Then again this whole venture is unlicensed. Wire frame of the ship? What would make me want to keep the box instead of throwing it away when the kit is finished? Then there is the issue of a stand. Do I provide one? What would that look like? Of course that will add to the cost of the kit. It doesnít seem right not to include one. It would have to be hefty since this will be a heavy model. Are the legal people reading this? Will I get my ass sued off? Instead of the Firefly Class ship Serenity I could call it the Dragonfly class Tranquility.
