Serenity: Small update

Just one small picture today - the completed revised flap ring. Of course, I've run out of 1x4 gray tiles now - time for another part order or two.



It also looks like I'm going to have to find a way to reinforce the "skin". Now that I've got the plates very close to gapless, it's a real pain to fix when one pops off - and they seem to be popping off more and more frequently. I don't know if that'll mean adding a second ring of click-hinges further down or just enhancing the connection at the existing join.

Something to putter with tonight, I suppose.

Chris:
I have a question about the Mini-Mizer v.3, uh, could you put Whiskey's faces in there?

Jordan & Jake:

I've added your requests to the list, but I doubt I'll get to either of them soon.

As you may have noticed, I'm a bit busy with another project right now... *points to subject of blog post*
