eurorack 3u flight cases - custom?

haven't had much luck finding a simple 3u 84hp flight case or similar

anyone know of any or some builders who make quality custom cases?
came across a few on etsy but they seemed to be wood which isn't ideal for travel gigs, not the lightest option

id imagine something made of hard molded plastic (like most flight cases these days) would make most sense

thoughts?

It's pricey, but the Roland SYR-E84 is 3u, 84hp, made of metal, and it's powered.

Why so small though is what I'm wondering?

yeah that does look cool, and the exact right size
id come across it before, will take a closer look thanks!
main concern would be, is it really flight worthy... let's say they insist the thing gets checked
hence my quest for something really rugged and protective

and here's why it's so small, the setup is powerful but distilled down

Pedaltrain makes a pedalboard case that is 24" by 8" tall and around 6" deep all closed. The Metro series.

You would get around 4U by 110 of space inside. That is the smallest I have seen.

$130 at Sweetwater.

that's cool tnx!
also was reading at muffwiggler about the custom flight case option at thomann
Flight case to your specifications? Configurate your new case here! – Thomann United States

could get it even smaller that way =]
then find someone who's handier than myself to attach angled rails
might be a decent route

ended up with a Black Market Modular 3u Bento Box
found used on reverb, perfect fit for my needs
in case others are looking for a portable 3u solution
