Storage case for a game using miniature WWII armor.

This is my storage case for a game using miniature armor. The box is bocote and the lid is maple. I used maple as I thought it would work better with the laser etching. My model rocket club meets at a hobby shop every week and we can use the laser cutter at the shop.

I also made little boxes for the dice and other game pieces. They are made from mahogany, walnut, paduak and maple.

Pretty good, you missed two. The British tank is the Matilda, not a Cromwell. And the Russian tank is an SU-85 Tank Destroyer.

For a real challenge, do the 24 models in the box! A lot of duplicates makes it a bit easier than your first glance would indicate.

Very nice work. Great accuracy. Did you do a Russian T-34? In great numbers it overwhelmed the German tanks.

Great numbers yes, but overall a crappy tank, during heavy combat operations (Kursk, Kharkov, Stalingrad, etc), a T-34 would usually last less than two weeks. During normal operations, it could last a few months before a complete overhaul would be needed.
