Kato's Model building tips, Working With Expanding Foam!

I needed a way to store some of my radio control transmitters and transport fragile models like my Kyosh Honda RC Motorcycle. Heres what I came up with. I found some plastic cases at a thrift shop and got the Idea to convert them into custom injection molded foam cases. I cut out the parts of the cases that I didnt want using an old soldering iron, wrap the part I want to mold in plastic wrap and then inject the foam around them. I then trim the foam, carefully remove the part and then line the foam with felt cloth for cushion. Its cheap and really protects the item. I also use the foam for floatation in my RC boats.
