    I created this from scratch using styrene for a buddy who is moving out of states. It was designed and built to hold a card game called "Lunch Money" along with a scratch built thermos to hold all the counters needed. This is my first major scratch build project aside from some much smaller custom G.I Joe weapons. I think this turned out fantastic seeing as its my first full build. I got into scratch building in order to work on a fully scratch built TF..... More on that later :-D I am also thinking about doing another one of these as a reproductions 80's TF lunch box just for fun. All comments and criticism welcome.

    First I will show the unpainted pics of so you can see the detail.

    Now for the painted and finished product.

    Thank you! :-D

    For the cover I scanned the box the game came with and "enhanced" it using photo shop then printed it out onto 4x6 photo paper and sprayed it lightly with clear coat to help protect it and then stuck it on with permanent double sided tape.

    What did you make this out of? Is it styrene?

    It is styrene, the only thing in the entire build that wasnt styrene was the latch to hold it closed.

    Not only is that an excellent piece, but it's for the best card game OF ALL TIME.
    Just a thought- The counters could maybe be pennies made from styrene, with a sihlouette of the little girl instead of Lincoln.

    Thank you very much! The counters is a fantastic idea! I already gave this to the person it was maid for, I have been thinking about making another one for myself or as a commission piece, if I do then I will probably see if I can get some good coins done.
