need a little help

01 March 2011 - 04:49 PM

I am building a supply truck in the apocalypse community build area. I need a bunch of boxes (cases) of items that would be handy in the event that we became a "every man for himself" community. EX.: canned meat, toilet paper, beer, hard liquor, Twinkies (gotta find a case of twinkies)lol), canned goods, etc.

not only do I need help finding these things but I have never made scale boxes before, so if anyone knows of a tutorial for this please let me know. I don't even know where to sttart so I need help sizing, software to use, etc.

thanks for any help.

I saw a post but forgot to save it, and can't search it.


i saw something that said something like 1/25 scale works by using 1" = 1 mm


not sure of the numbers please correct or confirm.

didn't see an introduction area, so I would put it in with my first post.
I have not done models in years, and thinking about getting back into the hobby. I currently have only 1 model that I built about 10 years ago. I build "realistic", or "dirty" models. I am here because I looked through the site and saw some of the best tips I ever saw and, now I am toying with the idea of getting back into it. I didn't have internet at the time and there was very few magazine articles on these types of models so pretty much everything is self taught. when I pulled this out of storage it was pretty busted up. going to pick up some glue and then possibly some better pics. sorry for the blurry ones, but thought I would at least get something up. also forgot to pic the underside which I am very proud of. The interior is very detailed but hard to get pics of. If there is enough interest in her I will give better description of the work. thanks for looking. btw for those that don't get it, she is a model of the cars you see in rougher neighborhoods where the take a 1500 car and put in 12000 in stereo and rims. lol
