Now build it and display it as cool art. Card boxes are dull as hell!

There's nothing like a bit of peer pressure to bring you round to our way of thinking! :wink:

First order of business now that it is open, is to fix the thing that drives me crazy about every original JRX2 box I see, the cheap thin caved-in cardboard top. Cut a piece of blank cardboard the exact size of the inside of the box top and stuffed it in there. Much better. Pics are before during and after. :)

Skipping ahead to the chassis plate for Charlie. :)

Found a use for the shrink wrap, I used it to cushion the chassis plate. :)
