The other day we received an email from one of our readers named Cliff McCarthy aka Kyp Durron who sent us some digital files of "Rebels Hover Crate" Papercraft that he made.
In his email, he stated that he'd like to let us be the first to test them out.
He said he used Paint.net to print out his own set, and left the "fit picture to frame" box checked/ticked. This prints the hover crate and accessory page out in 1:18th scale.
He made all on-screen versions he was able to find (standard brown/tan, Imperial grey, and Fulcrum Green). Plus he made several custom colors to represent various contents.
The Custom ones are:
Blue = Aquatic foodstuffs and supplies. Like fish, chum, liquids, etc.
White = Medical supplies like Bacta.
Yellow = Hazardous materials like radioactive or bio hazard.
Light Brown = Clothing and linens.
He also made an accessory page that has squares for meilooruns, jogans, pistols, rifles, credits, and spice. This page includes racks that can hold the various pieces much like the racks seen in the first episode. And four extra foot pegs to help give the bottom of the crate definition. Kyp Durron even included a rough draft version of the credit boxes that Vizago, Hondo, and Lando are seen using.
Each of the crates has the option to have a folding top or a removable top and there's an insert for the interior of the crate. He's working on some additions, so the lid to have an insert, as well as designs for other supply accessories.
It's easy to add cardstock (cereal box material) to the crates to strengthen them, but the insert does make them sturdy enough for display purposes.
He hopes you all enjoy these crates, and we'd all love to see them used in some of your dioramas too. Send all your diorama pictures that utilize these crates to email@example.com so we can put together a nice little video compilation of all the dioramas that were inspired by Kyp Durron's hard work!
