Looks nice. I have to do this eventually...For now I'm using my radio shack soldering iron with the exacto blade tip (an exacto-style blade that screws into the soldering pen. I would have never thought). A little back and forth action gets me most of the way through the foam (thin sections).

I tried that but couldn't hold steady enough for a smooth cut.. lol, I have tried everything over the years from straight razors to a electric carving knife's But nothing ever really gave the results I wanted.. Going to order some different types of foam and try to make up a couple different cases to hold all my flight gear, heli's and my Dx7.. Maybe Ill just make one big case to hold it all
