    Hey guys! Those of you who make your own boxes, how do you make your inserts? I'm working on a box for my R.I.D. Spychanger kitbash, but I have no idea on how to make a nice insert. I'd prefer using cardboard since styrene and styrofoam supplies are scarce around here... The box is 10 cm wide, 6 cm high, and 3 cm deep. Any tips, pointers, and suggestions are highly appreciated!

    EDIT: Sorry about the measurements being in centimetres; we only use the metric system in the Nordic.

    Since your custom box is quite small, cardboard is the best way. When the box's finished, determine the edge to window distances, sketch it on a cardboard and try to fold/slice a nice shape of cardboard to put your bot in. Good luck!!
