That's very impressive! But what is it going to be?
I know you said storage, but you haven't confirmed which idea you went for :)

Been a while since I posted in this topic, however since I last posted, I decided to make design number 4 and below I'm going to post some pictures of the progress I've made so far.


I did Danny ;) but to sum up it's going to be a shelf with storage for teddy bears in the seats, pop badges in the holes shown and the flat storage for various items on the front :)

Sorry I missed that! Looks very good! Does the hole section pull out to be a draw? :)

Update on project #Smilercar, I bet you can all guess what part this is :) also a close up of the Joint I hand made for the middle bar :) (the square under the smiler face and text is paper towel supporting them to keep them straight as in the project they will be attatched to something)

Yes the harnesses/restraints are designed with teddy bears in mind :)

THE PROJECT IS COMPLETE!! :moj

As at the start of this topic I would love some detailed feedback back about the finished product (bit more than I like it or I dont like it) if you could. Which bits you like which bits you like which bits you don't. Any improvements or things you may liked to have seen done differently. Opinions share them, it will all help me to evaluate the product as I need to include the opinions of my client and theme park enthusiasts you are my clients! It is a theme park merchandise storage device aimed predominantly to store theme park bears in a quirky way, it also has a feature to store pop badges which are also collectible.

Looks amazing, pop badges fit and the gaps look good without them. The teddie chairs are funny! Well done.

This looks absolutely fantastic! If Merlin actually sold these, I'd get one. It is evident that your attention to detail is very good because you've even included Gerst's logo on the restraints!
I suppose I should help you by offering a point for improvement. You could have some sort of storage for other types of badges, or maybe some little hooks at the front for keyrings, but that all depends on how the clients usually use those things (on keys and clothes or just collecting them for the sake of enthusiasm).
However, without those things, it is still awesome :)

This looks brilliant, somewhere useful to keep all kinds of merch and goodies, certainly something I'd consider getting to keep my half dozen or so resins, as they're starting to clutter up my desk now :lol I think it's good how you've considered the size of a typical Towers soft toy to make sure no space is wasted and used almost every surface as some sort of storage device, great work Zach! :)
