You guys scratch build some amazing stuff, but here's some really easy stuff i've found or put together.
Scx-10 with Proline Jeeeep XJ body. The auto shift knob and T-case lever went in when i got the interior plate to better match my 99 xj.

I've made a fast food cup from 2 caps from a medical device cap thing, and a piece of wire. Cut the bottom off one, melted it onto top of the other, drilled straw hole through mold fill, made a straw from 20g wire. I thought about grabbing some paint to put a liquid level in it, or filling it with cut floral card holder 'ice'.

My old scale cargo layout. Coleman 220 & Stihl keyrings, iphone/pod accessory amp ghetto-blaster radio, shoelace recovery strap

The coleman can light up, the stihl can make saw noise, the radio had a weak amp & speakers work.

The real XJ is often tasked with dragging my Mountain or Recumbent bikes around, somecimes the wife takes it for her Fatbike. Anyway, let's go ride bikes!

"Mountain matel bike.
Simulating a true style, to insure a liken new appearance in definately once own, nothing can instead."

Uh, it sure does. ...I couldn't have said it more. Ordered 1/10 scale bicycle from Wish, it's chinesieum and engrish but pretty well detailed.

Let's get it loaded up.

It's odd to not be folding the rear seat and fighting the frame around the spare tire.

Moved the other junk up to the middle.

Dude that drink cup is tight. I have to come up with something like that.

What is ?cut floral card holder ice?? I?m trying to make some ice now... been brainstorming. I know you can buy it. I like making stuff. Challenge of it is fun.

Thanks man! After i posted it i noticed these might be pretty cool accessories on their own, but my setup is still pretty noob level for sbg. At least they were polite about it. *(Looks around at the Crickets chirping in here)*

Ya ever get your girl, mom, or whatever a bouquet of flowers? They usually has a clear plastic weird trident looking thing, holding the little card you write something nice on. Those card holder sticks are a really brittle plastic, and with a pair of sidecut pliers or dikes you can chop 90% of one of those into scale ice cubes. I like little rectangles about 1/2 square.

Craft shops that have silk flowers, or flower arranging sections usually have those little card holding sticks. They're cheap, but somebody will probably appriceate you getting them flowers for once. I can try to grab a pic tomorrow of a cooler full.

Ahh, ok. I getcha. I?ve been in floral shops trying to figure it out looking at the floral foam, lol. I did manage to see some clear round beads at a craft store that looked just like the round I e I on get in a commercial bag of ice, so I bought that. I don?t have a 3D printer and I like fabbing my stuff by hand, so far.
