!SHIP NOT INCLUDED! :)
There are lots of storage solutions for these tiny ships, but I wanted something that would allow me to carry just one ship (or a couple) rather than having to always take an entire box with me
**LATEST UPDATES: 14/6/17 - I've uploaded the original Sketchup file for all these boxes. Feel free to use it as you see fit.
So far I have included boxes for:
- X-Wing (T-65)
- Tie Fighter (Should fit the TIE/FO too, but untested)
- Tie Advanced
- Tie Bomber
- Tie Phantom
- Z95 Headhunter
- HWK 290
- Scum Faction logos
- Tie Interceptor
- YT 2400 (Lid and box separate files)

- Decimator (Lid and box separate files)
- Firespray (Lid and box separate files)
- Aggressor (Lid and box separate files)

“Will you be making a box for…”
Probably, eventually, maybe.
I have also created Pilot and Damage/Upgrade card boxes in the same style, you can find them here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:755733
Print as placed, they should fit on any type of printer since they are pretty small.
I use the following to print:
1.75mm PLA, .15 layer height, 0 perimeters, no supports/raft/brim should be necessary.
NOTE: After months of using this method, the hinges tend to break, the filament gets brittle and snaps. I now use 1.5mm steel wire, which is commonly sold in hardware/garden shops as bailing or fencing wire, that works great! You can also use a paperclip which apparently works well too! Apparently a paperclip also works nicely.
The clip at the front is quite tight when first printed, it needs a bit of sanding/filing down (just a few seconds) to get it to a place that you're happy with. I like it to really grip the box so it's very hard to flip open, but you can just sand it down a little more to tune it to your needs.
Whatever you like! I used Acrylics airbrushed on for the box and the blaster-burns on the rebel boxes, and brush-painted the weathered red on the rebel logos. Then drybrused with silver. The imperial boxes are just airbrushed a flat gunmetal type grey.
