Figure transport cases

Post by Tiptopperoo » Tue Oct 23, 2007 3:11 pm

Hello all,

I have had manufactured foam figure trays which fit inside a Craftech aluminium tool case readily available from Bunnings for $24. The cases are lightweight aluminium, with 2 lockable latches and a carry strap.

These trays are approx 440mm x 310mm x 25mm deep (plus a 6mm base so each tray is 31mm total thickness of which 25mm is useable). They each contain 60 25mm x 50mm cut outs in which to house your miniatures. If you need bigger ones, then just like in a GW tray you can cut the foam to your specifications.

I will be selling a set of 4 trays + an extra bit of 440mm x 310mm x 6mm foam to use as a topsheet for $55 + postage. For those people who live in rural areas I can also supply the cases at an additional cost of $30 + postage.

So for a total of ~$90 you will be able to have a sturdy carry case that holds more than twice as many figures as an $85 GW one.

If you would like to order a set, please email me at foamsales@mini-soft.com.au and I will send you back an order confirmation and payment details.

Regards

Great idea. I will be checking my lcoal Bunnings for the case, then looking for some of these trays. :)

they are very popular cases...I took 5 tries to get my two, and think I will get some more as Dave is going to do some tank carrying trays and while essentially 40k should adapt well to those of us who follow the True Faith, though I am a bit of heretic what with my championing of Valiant, which are the new true ,True faith

You buy the same size cases from Autobarn and other automotive style shops I am told. They are exactly the same, just bout $5 cheaper, but dont come with a shoulder carry stray (which is kinda crap anyway).

And you don't have to go looking for the trays, just email me at minisofttransports@gmail.com and they will come to you!
