Source for foam padding

Post by Sev-like » Wed May 20, 2009 10:02 pm

Hey guys,

I need help looking for this kinda foam. I have no idea where and how to obtain them. Or even what they are meant to be used for. Could anyone help me?

I need it for the same purpose as the pic shows.

Pic from TDH, I don't have a pair of MR Westar pistols. Just need to show you guys how the foam look like.

I think that kind of foam is usually found in expensive briefcases...

Well if you are on the higher budget side, you can actually get SKB Flight Cases from either Yamaha Music Store or Swee Lee which comes with the internal foam paddings or you could contact a local flight case maker who can customise the foams for you and be more secured. They also does custom flight cases as well.

Woah...that is high end, I'll never be able to afford those.

I'm getting some from Gordon, but I don't think its big enough. So I'll just keep this open.

hmm.. i do have big pieces, but just realise that the pattern is different from the kind u looking for. U can refer to the link. The dept and height of those protrusions id around 4cm difference.. I dont think its suitable for yr kind of usage.. :?

Ohh noo, I didn't that's just a pic I'd got from TDH to illustrate my point. Darn, forgotten to quote the source.

Besides, if I'd got one pair in, I wouldn't be putting up a pic of it.

I only have the resin kit for the Westar pistols. I think they're recasts from MRs..maybe, maybe not..
