    The case that I bought came with the foam. Its precut so it can be easily molded to your needs.

    I have a bunch of these they work quite well!

    I also found if you search amazon you can find some good deals on the black latch cases with pluck foam inserts top left in picture below if I recall same price as HD.

    One can never have enough cases!

    You may have to visit a few HDs to find one, they are a clearance item and probably aren't being restocked. Good luck as they are a nicely built case with plenty of room inside.

    I have two of these cases, and they work quite well. One caution: the hinges and latches are their weak point. Inspect them regularly, and consider a strap around the case if you travel with them a lot.

    Now erase the image from your mind of the case opening up and your eyepieces falling onto the concrete.

    I am looking for something in the 36Lx22ishWx18h. That has wheels or that I can mount wheels on. I will buy pluck foam or low density foam to mold around my OTA, tripod and mount. I had bought the Zhumell bag, but found it was too flimsy for the scope, tripod and mount. So if anyone has any ideas of blueprints let me know.
