Cosmetics "Train Case" good for paints and hobby stuff?

Hi All,

I was looking into picking up something like this:

Does anyone have experience with something like this?  I'd keep my paints in the trays, and tools at the bottom.  Do you think this would work?



  1. Not sure it depends on how the bottom tray folds down into the bottom of the box .

  2. I used something very similar to what you have pictured above. Biggest ptoblem I had was finding a case in which the paint bottles I owned would fit in the trays with the lid of the box fully closed.

    I do a lot of traveling for work so the toolbox served dual duty. I can take both the minis and my tools on the road with me.

  3. i use one that opens exactly like that. its great for GW type pots but not so good for vallejo. the boxes are really tough though as mine fell off the side of a LAV at about 40kn hr and was only scratched up. the contents were still safe.
