A few years ago, not happy with the lack of accessories for Nam dioramas, I built a template for a case of C-rations. Yesterday, I was looking at a brown folder on my desk, and thought my original idea could be improved on by using heavier stock and brown colored paper.
If anyone wants a copy of the template, I just need an email address. I've found it works best if I send the template to you as an email attachment, which allows you to print it as a true 1/6th-sized case of C-rats.
Ready for cutting
After cutting the box out, a bit of trimming may be needed, so that the case slides into the sleeve more easily. I've also found that it works best if I pinch the folds with a pair of pliers, to "sharpen" the edges of the box.
Since the case is printed on a brown folder, which is quite a bit heavier stock than plain paper, I use super glue to hold it together.
Yummy, all the nourishment for the basic Nam grunt; Turkey Loaf, Chicken and Noodles, Beef Slices and Potatoes, and the ever popular Ham and Lima Beans.
