I think you nailed the shape! And the decals are the icing on the cake. How are you going to color the dots in the handle recess?

Thank you :) Apart from the handle needing to be a touch shorter, yes I am liking the shape too.

I've drilled the 6 holes in each panel. I guess I will place some sort of backing and fill each side's holes with the same yellow epoxy I have used for the letters. Not 100% sure yet.

It was asked earlier if I could make the ends thinner at the tip and not so rounded.

Yeah I made a new tool and pulled 6 parts.

These are my testers in white 3mm HIPS. The other 4 are in the black 3mm ABS.

I will trim them up tomorrow.

Re: My BTTF Inspired Bag V2 Page 4 - Now Complete

I took my tubebag out on it's first outing today. Dreamworld on the Gold Coast, had a Lego exhibition and where the draw card for me was a Delorean time machine.

So I packed up the shoes and jacket into the bag and carried in the tube bag. Lots of stares, no comments. The car was quite a bit smaller than it
looked in the promo photos. #geekdad

Pull your pants pockets inside out, all the cool geek dads wear their pants like that in 2018 ;P
Bag looks amazing and you make the Lego DeLo look even better :).
Keep up the good work

OK after a bit of a time delay, I am hopefully going to be back on track.

The cast end caps are not strong and the first tube bag that was mailed out was smashed up. To fix this, I am going back to vacuum forming them. To make this possible, I have had to make new tools and I am using this aluminium tooling resin which is especially made for vacuum forming.
