May i ask how and what tools you used to design the outline of the ship? I have been trying and cant seem to get the outlines down.

I'm not an advanced modeler, I use TinkerCAD.

I use calipers to take measurements of the ship's size and main parts that would need to be modeled and "cut" out of the bin to accomodate the ship mini. I sketch out an outline with measurements (on paper for reference) and then start building up the model using the basic building blocks TinkerCAD provides. Sculpting of parts (like engines) takes a number of shapes, quite a few are used to cut out portions and shape the component of the ship (the engine, the main body, the tail, etc.). Then I print draft prints to start testing for fit and positioning. The drafts are not the full bins, I drop a block big enough to accept the model and cut it out from the block for test prints.

I will eventually spend time and learn Fusion 360 so I can draw the outlines and work with those directly. How I currently model is not very efficient but I don't mind.

Attached is a photo of what I mean by draft prints to test for fit and position. It shows a test print when I was modeling the RZ-2.

That's awesome. I printed out some of your vulture droid holder and people were raving about them. If you ever need help test fitting future designs, please let me know and i will be happy to print and test them.
