I finally received my custom Battle Foam for ships through Wave 3. Double-stacked are TIE Advanced, TIE Interceptor, A-wing, B-wing, Y-wing, HWK-290. The A-wing, Y-wing would easily hold two more in each slot, the HWLK-290 would hold one more, and the YT-1300 would hold one more. (But I'd want a foam spacer before double-stacking the YT-1300.)

Anyway, that's 34 ships in a single 2-inch layer of foam.

The cut was perfect.

Too well organized for my tastes. I prefer chaos.

Wow, that looks really good.
It fits EVERYTHING you need to bring?
Are the cards sleeved?

All this actually fits into the 216?

For other people ordering. Put in your comments you want the foam cutouts. Then you have them for spacers. I have a hot wire and have sliced a few of mine as thin spacers for doubling ships.

Obviously you didn't know this. I have a few falcon cut outs if you would like some spacers PM me and we can make that happen for you. I can just toss them in an envelope so I am not worried about the few cents shipping.

But you only have 2 Y-Wings and 2 HWKs! Imperial spy...



I have at least 3 of each, and I'm this close to buying another Y-Wing (and maybe even another HWK)...

Yes, everything so far.

Only the damage cards, since they're the only ones that get regularly handled. (I rarely break out the pilot or upgrade cards, because I print out my squadrons with all the information on the page.

Yes, so far. With Wave 4 I'll have to get another PACK, but the 216 has an attachment zipper, so it will still only be one thing to carry.

Thanks, could you please link to the pictures that you used for ordering these. Don't want to order the wrong ones

Hmm those don't actually look like the same outlines as the picture of the actual foam you posted, did you just overlap the two B wing formats? I'm trying to figure out how to fit more B wings at the time and trying to see what you did. Also you said 2 inches thick for the ships? 2 HWK-290s fit fine on top of each other?

Good catch. Sorry about that.

Yes.

Definitely two inches. The Lambda requires it. (And it allows more stacking of others, including two YT-1300s.) You could fit three HWK-290s into that slot, actually.
