It only took me 6 years to find out about the bunnings cases and I decided to get one as a multi game travelling case.

After purchasing and opening the case the interior foam was in poor condition, peeling in many places and made me think 'what am I doing?' so I decided to rip out all the foam and line the case with felt. So I bought 1m of felt ($12), can of spray adhesive ($12) and stripped out the foam, carefully cut the felt and installed it.

Best Tool Award goes to a paint scraper, awesome for removing the foam, pressing down the felt and after sharpening the edge it can be used to cut the felt after installation.

Now after doing this I bought a set of foam from Minisoft, Pieres is a great guy and this is a quality product. I am going to use 1/2 the case for models and 1/2 for books and accessories so I cut the foam in half.

1 tray for Battletech, 2 trays for Uncharted Seas (I lined the tray cells with felt to make the models feel important so they fight harder) and 1 tray for Deadzone (lots of space for more models, i need to paint more)

I then put in battletech recordsheets, 2 maps and rules

Deadzone and Uncharted Seas rules, dice container, card box, counters and tape measure

I still had space

Which would give me enough room for 2 more battletech maps and a deckbox for CCG

Overall there is a bucketload of space in this case and having a 1 stop case for taking to the club or game days is fantastic. I have some extra trays which I could use for other games and just swap in/out depending on what i want to play on a particular day.

Also I should have used a darker colour felt though as the red shows up some of my poor cutting/measuring smile.gif

Looks good mate. Between the school club and my own kit, I now have 6 of these cases, and two armies in progress without cases yet lol.

Great work Mango, looks like a very sturdy case and has been very well converted smile.gif
