    It is not a Pelican but very similar. It is a Military night vision case. I bought five of them from Ebay for $89 shipped.

    Yes,

    I went to the local foam fabricator company and bought a few different thicknesses of foam. I first tried to use a hobby hot knife but that did not work well on the foam. I then used a exacto knife and that worked much better. I traced the outline of what I wanted to cut out with a sharpie and cut the shape out.

    Type in "military surplus night vision case". They raised the price, they are now around $33 shipped each but I'm sure you could get a better price if you bought more than one. They will come with some military stickers on them. I used a adhesive remover and some alcohal and they cleaned up quite nicely.

    Leisure Pro has excellent prices on Pelicans. They also sell Pic n Pluc foam that you can create custom inserts.

    I've already posted these in the SF Collection thread, but since this is a specific Pelican Case thread, here I go again...

    It's the Pelican Hardback 1090 Laptop case with the Pick'N'Pluck foam. It's working pretty good for me since I have mostly smaller E series lights.

    It's a pity Pelican cases aren't officially distributed in Italy and, the ones that sell them, usally do it for 3 times the original price
    I bought my 3 small cases from abroad, but for bigger ones (I was thinking about getting a Pelican riflecase for my future BCM.460Steyr) the shipping rates would kill me

    Here's my advice...take it for what its worth!

    Check out Ebay for the cheapest Pelican case prices!

    Now to get the correct size cut-outs for whatever cases you may purchase:

    1) Do a search for Hot Wire Foam cutters. Any person with very basic skills, that would be me, can build these. They are extremely easy to build with parts from the hardware store / Radioshack.

    2) Buy some heavy white construction paper, trace your light, gun, or whatever with a pencil. Remember that when you trace...to trace smaller than the object so that you get a tight fit when putting your light, gun, or whatever into the foam. Once traced clean up the lines so they are straight and perfect!

    3) After the your objects are traced and cut out of the construction paper lay them out on the foam in what ever arrangement you deem fit. That way you will see exactly how everything will fit size wise before you even cut the foam. Once you have everything layed out tack the paper cut-outs to the foam with pins or tacks to keep them in place.

    I have cut foam for so many Pelican cases I have lost count. It is a tedious process but it will look professional and others will ask you how you did it. I will try to post a link to www.ar15.com that has more info.

    That looks nice. I like how your foam is very form-fitting to the individual lights. I take it that your foam was one solid piece that you manually cut out to fit your lights? Judging by your picture, your foam looks softer than the stuff I have. How did you make the nice clean cuts?

    I love the look of these lights in the pelican cases. Makes me want to go out and get some for my lights and handguns. There is a picture of a yellow pelican case with Surefire stickers on it, that case rocks.

    Guess what I learned today?

    I suck at cutting foam! A rush job with a pocket knife will do that for you though. At least the lights are cool.
    I will have to get some of that pick and pluck foam eventually!



    NOT a Pelican, a $12 paintball gun case from Dick's. Cheap-O

    You don't have to cut out the exact shape of your light/item, just cut out or pluck a space a bit smaller than the item, and the foam will do the rest. The foam will conform to the item and will hold it in place also. For some of my smaller 4 inch lights plucking 3 squares for length and 1 or 2 squares for width will do..

    Hmmm. Interesting. Looks different than my pick 'n' pluck. Oh well. Looks good.
