Tell us about yourself!
I think the process is something like:1) Cut the outer profile2) Cut off the back 3) Cut out the profile of the drawer(s)4) Cut off the back and front of the drawer(s)5) Cut out the drawer compartment(s)6) Glue the drawer(s) together7) Add any handles8) Glue the back9) Finish
I'm afraid I didn't take any in-progress shots, but this tutorial covers the steps pretty well: https://www.instructables.com/Bandsaw-Boxes-Mad...It's actually a lot easier than it looks, just so long as you stick to the process.
Dang, this makes it look easy.
Something along these lines. The square end faces forwards, and it mounts to the existing strap hinges (probably by epoxy). I'm not ready to engineer one, but I'd do something like that.And go easy on the detail and shape; Toha Heavy Industry equipment tends to use simple shapes (see the Gravitational Beam Emitter and Kanoe Zoichi's sidearm)
Alright, uploaded. That should include everything, plus a couple extra things I'd consider if I made this again.And go for it with the 3D printing. I made this over a year before I had access to one, but I would've added lots of features if I had the chance.
Now that I think of it, you'd probably want to integrate a handle into your scope. The strap is actually somewhat important in deploying it properly; you can use just your thumb to pull the release switch on the front. Without it, you'd probably need to use two hands.
I'm not sure I still have them, but I'll find or reproduce them when I get some time.

Hey, thanks.If I had any in-process photos, I would've posted them. But as with a lot of my projects, I'm never really sure I'll finish them and they can end up shelved for months, so I don't really take any process shots. I suppose I can always make an exploded view of the computer model if I can find the time.

I didn't really show it in the pictures, but I glued the whole printed sheets onto the cardstock and cut to the edge of the paper. Then I used those edges to align the back sheets and cut out the individual tiles. That generates more wasted cardstock than if you tried to be more meticulous, but it's a one-time project so it's not so bad. And any imperfections on the back or edges can be touched up with markers.And while you're at it, you might want to take a blue marker to the backs of the river/"terraform" tiles so you can sort them out. I don't have any pictures, but I just stippled the planet blue while leaving the "C" white.I have to say I'm a little flattered someone actually made a set. Feels like the dog who finally caught the car.
Absolutely lovely! But I wonder if you could do the same with Homeworld models? They had paper model templates for a while, but those have since vanished into archives.
