ok...no big deal, but i had this old pelican case laying around. I found some cutable white foam and made a nice resting area for lenses and diagonal and assorted stuff

Gotta love Pelican cases. I just bought my third Pelican case and it probably won't be my last.

That's part of my manned spaceflight collection. Models, autographs, photos and rare artifacts, much of which came from the late Charles H. Bell (NASA engineer and legendary space junk collector).

Pelicans rock, man. I have a few that I keep tools in for airline travel, they take quite a beating.

Check out a site called my case builder. They'll make custom foam for a variety of pelican cases.
