That the body for the TOS Communicator was actually fashioned from a grade school pencil box.

Holy Crap! I had one of those as a little kid around 1970. I think the shape was just an inspiration. It was too long and too narrow. And made out of squishy plastic.
If you click on the link they show how the box was used to form the bucks which then the kydex was used to fashion the comm body.
