Of course I had to build a clacker for the mine model:
It isn't mapped or rigged yet. For that matter, I'm holding off on textures for the moment (will do a bunch at the same time). And, yes, I built altGeom for the plug so you can put the protective boot over the terminals if you want!
Also screen-shot several stages of the build. Perhaps I will make a blog entry some time about box modeling, and working with reference materials and scale information.
I'm also more than half-tempted to go through to water-tight and manifold the mesh, and make the mine printable from my Shapeways store: in 1/4 scale or smaller of course.
