I want to store and transport my flames of war buildings in a more secure way (and easier to access then individual wrapping them!). Do you do custom trays?

Thanks
Dru

Not as such. How big are the buildings? Are they the battlefield in a box stuff?

Roy, perhaps we should meet up somewhere and I can bring along some trays and if you have some of those houses we can try and work out what would be best?

I dont quite know how big they are but I assume that a heavy cavalry set could be the way to go.

Thanks to Dru, I have decided that i will store my own terrain in cases now biggrin.gif

I got most of it packed into the foam, I just couldnt get that really nice tree castle in... sad.gif it was just too big!

<applies back rub>

Ok so they are 3 pieces each, length (85mm), width (68mm), height (35mm).
Only protrusion is the chimney stack.
If you were going to make a single cavity and lie them down as a stack then 115mm would see the chimney clear but then allow rattle unless you used extra foam to cushion the angled bits.
Does that make sense?
The entire collection is 12 house plus some outhouse accessories which I don't have with me.

going by the dimensions I think you that you will be best off using the heavy infantry trays.

You can get 3 trays per case. Each tray will be able to hold 6 houses; provided that each segment of the house is as described above:

length (85mm), width (68mm), height (35mm).

You can combine two cells into one and it will pretty much fit it in. It would be 90x60x40. I think that the 60mm width should be okay. Im happy to get a tray to you so you can doctor it up and see if it will work or not. I am pretty confident that it will be okay

Is it convenient to keep them in 3 separate parts?

Please see the pics as follows:

Okies, thanks to Rathpex for a test tray!
I've taken some foam bits out to fit the pieces in each section.
It's a bit tight and the roof doesn't sit 100% but they are pretty rugged pieces, I would suggest offsetting the roofs between each layer so they aren't on top of each other.
2 trays will do a dozen, I'm thinking I will cut two of them in half so I can stack 3 halves on one side of the case and the other on the other side.
This will leave a larger double depth cavity for storing train station, road, rail, church etc if you have them.
Probably get some pluck foam the right thickness from Clark Rubber for that section though.
Thanks Pieres!
