Possible future project is a go

Remember a few posts down how i said i fancied making something along the lines of this ship from a graphic novel. Well, my good friend Ian Ward saw that post (and it was his graphic novel too) and supplied me with this lovely shape to get started.
Thanks Ian.
Its a bizarro snack holder where you upturn it, put your food in, then turn upright and the gimble inside closes the container up.
Not too bothered by the gimble so you can see in the bottom pic i've cut it apart. May leave the large open hole to have it as either an engine or a scoop device. First thought for the horizontal sections was to built them up from a basis of a piece of Foamboard but changed that now to try and find something from my bits box that'll be nice and sturdy and detailed.
