Lookin good locostorm! The one thing I would suggest for improvement is to use a string tied to a pencil/pen to make your circles and curves perfectly round. For cardboard, this is looking pretty great! How do you plan to finish/seal it?

I was thinking plastidip. And ya i should have made the circles like that but hind sight is 20-20. I know you use foam alot but do you have any advice for making curved edges?

If you mean like cutting the large radius curves, in foam I usually do a few light passes with a sharp blade until I finally cut through. For rounding edges after they have been cut, I use either sandpaper or a rotary tool (dremel)
