    Part 9 & 11

    Time to seal up the bottom. The corner tabs get folded down and tucked in behind the corners of part 1. Then Part 9 is cut out and glued to the bottom of part 1. Part 11 is cut out and overlaid onto part 9.

    Hello all. Got a little behind on this project, I have more done and will post soon. However, it might get real slow form here on in, and I might not make the date. I just last week tore the rotator cuff on my left shoulder pretty bad and my range of movement in that arm is greatly reduced. Getting a MRI on Friday to see how much damage and what surgery I might need. But if I have my way, I'll find some way of completing this.

    assembly

    I have to let everyone know at this point, I'm building two of these at the same time. One to test build and one for this contest. This way I can find out the best way to build this. The test build will go with my daughter to be given to our local High School. Parts 17/18/19,20, I found are best built by gluing the top part to the sides first. This allows for better alignment to make them more square.
