You must be on Valium... To have the patience to do those hinges once is one thing. To break it down and start it all over again... wow.

Looks great. Even with your fingers in the shot, it is still hard to remember that this is a tiny box to begin with.

Nice post....another thing might help you to remove solder is Solder Wic. Just a roll of braided copper you heat to remove the solder, then you just cut it off as you go. Easier than steel wool.

Looks good in any case.

How's the Griffon tool?

I don't have time right now peoples to answer thy queries, but I'll get back to them when I can. For now here are some more progress shots of the ammo boxes.
Test fit into the model.


The cartridge or rear part of the shells




What the seating looks like- the square bumps will be removed at the back as the hinges will sit that high.


A couple of the three shell boxes and a cartridge case.


The hinge pin wire still needs to be cut of course.




Here a quick test with some ammo from Voyager I believe.












Dead sexy, eh?




Here the base plate and rear cartridge parts before soldering together.
