This project is for a SOC-R Riverine Boat. The image below is scaled down, but will print out at about 7 inches/17.8cm . The hull is about 90% done and I still need to make the engine deck, driver's rear deck and driver/radar area. It's not an exact copy and it is also a water line type of model, but I did do a quick colored bottom for it. I'm not making guns for this, but Ebbles Miniatures does make a set you could add to this.
May i ask why, being the bottom at the bottom ( ;D ) you choose to not put the tabs on it but on the top? I could have go in the opposite way (so the top piece with the hole attached to the sides, glueing them to the unprinted part of the bottom, and then gluing the printed "floor" on top of that tabs....) but i'm surely missing some design reason...
There are a few advantages to doing it this way: -One is that the holes for the rope lines are much easier to cut out. -The top pieces is a sandwich fold for extra strength. A sandwich fold makes it much easier to align the two pieces together. -The bottom piece has the engine box part attached to it and the alignment for the box really needs to be done after the bottom is in place with the walls. -When attaching the top part to the walls, the glue flaps are much easier to clamp (See the Alligator clamps).
I found construction to be easy. Although I did add chipboard to the model. This adds more strength, but meant that I had to do a lot of extra trimming to get the inside pieces to fit. If you build it without the chipboard you wont have to trim the paper. I need a day or so to go over the file.
It will hold between 11 and 13 minis with 25mm bases.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download
