Has anyone built a foamcore insert to store all the minis in the core box?

I'm thinking of taking a stab at it, but if anyone has already done so and has some advice, that would be awesome.

Neat idea. Keep us updated on your progress.

Lt Pebbles, There was someone who had converted the boxes to provide a storage solution. I believe you might find something on the Robotech RPG Tactics site. Effectively it was a series of pull out drawers

Other than that I backed Fireteam Zero and another backer has come up with a foamcore solution - go to Boardgame Geek and look for FTZ and the Forum comments. No instructions as yet but the pics give you a good idea of what is needed.

Hope this helps

Thanks, Wily. I'll search for that storage solution.

I have used packing egg-crate foam in my core box. I found it works fairly well.

That's a good suggestion.

I tried coming up with a foamcore plan that divides the box into a 6x6 grid that fits one mech per space, but there is not enough room for each mech plus the size of the foamcore walls. (I'd post a picture of what I mean, but no images allowed here.)

A 5x5 grid gives spaces that would probably work for most mechs, but then everything won't fit (and a few mechs are large enough to need a 1x2 space to themselves).

The ex built a bunch of foam core tray to fit in banker boxes that is used to sore all the rrt stuff. Unfortunately cshe has the plans for them on her PC and I have no way to get them to you. I could take pictures if you like? The core was to be used for !instead storage if they ever exist.
