Be nice to see them....

Here is mine, with the Tome Retailer Ed. + green LED kit.

Very nice. The only downside being the "crease" in the top left leather thingy caused by the folding arm.

As you see, I still haven't decided where to stick the plaque.

Looks great.

The crease is an occupational hazard I'm afraid...
Doesn't happen on all the boxes, depends on where exactly I had to position the lid strut for it to function properly. A few millimeters either way does make a difference.
All the boxes are hand made and very slightly different.

One solution would be to cut a small rectangular piece out of the top layer of latherette/foam in that corner to make a little 'garage' for the folded arm.

Box looks great with your blaster in it Smile

Just got mine.
The pictures don't do it justice. Really beautiful work.
Thanks Karl!

Yours took a while!

So glad it got there safely, and that you like it.

Best,

Karl

Well, Karl was nice enough to send me a piece of leatherette, so I could cut the top left corner of the box's inside (2/3 height) and place a little piece of leatherette on the "new bottom" (for cosmetic purpose).
Now, the articulated arm gets gently into its new customized hole.

Smile







Thanks again.

Yep, that works.

Not every box requires it, it depends on the precise position of the lid strut.

I did it on a recent case for a Firefly Mal pistol. In this case both the top layer of the bottom foam and the lid needed a 'strut-garage'.

I forgot to ask : I still didn't place the plaque. Where would you have put it yourself, Karl ?

So sorry,
Been away working overseas.
Just back.

Personally, I would put it inside on top of the leatherette, at the bottom right quarter.
