Look forward to this build.

I have a lot of resect for RAWENs designs. I can't wait to hear your thoughts about the kit and see the build!
It's only one page, 15 total pieces, if I put the interior in... Hmmm.... A single small LED to light the inside?

Okay, no LED inside, not enough room, and I'm not getting into LightSheet for this tiny thing.

My 11 year old Granddaughter said it needs the interior though...

I started with the top of the page, being the display...
Base cut out and preformed...

And glued and clamped to dry.

Next the back wall, then I'll cut out the interior, and start building the pod.

I'd use some Popsicle sticks to make the sides of the base firm and straight. :)

I've got to add something to give it some weight, so craft sticks will work.

Back of display laminated to cardboard...

And attached to the base.

Any Flerrfers seeing this will be mad, cause the hull of the E-Refit in about 1/72nd scale is "flat" on the scale of 10 to 15 feet.

I need to learn that when it comes to me building something, there is no such thing as quick...

No work done on any projects at all yesterday, just grandbaby time... :cool:

And today is "Gender Reveal" party for soon to be grandbaby number 4. :toast:

You can find really tiny surface mount LEDs now. They are extremely small, but put out a lot of light. ;)

I know, but the roof of the interior touches the top of the pod...

My Travelpod journey got squashed... So I had to reprint, and start over...

The grand daughter got ahold of my base, and destroyed it, and the plan I had printed out, ended up in the pets water dish...
so printed again, got everything pre scored, and started with the interior.
cut out.

prefolded.

glueing...

and more glueing...
20220511_160732-1.jpg

and more glueing...
20220511_160928-1.jpg

The interior finished.

Now to start on the exterior... and find some clear to be the front window.

I know, right, or don't leave it where the grandbaby can reach it...
