Had some good luck out on my walks this weekend in regard to some garage sale finds. First up, at one of the nine I wandered across, I found a nice ruin, I think for an aquarium, as well as three nicely carved wooden horses in 1/28 scale, a bear carved from stone, and a little wooden dog.
But the best of the finds was a Plano 45102 Rod Case Adjustable 4.25″ x 64″ x 106″ (I'm not sure it's the "-6" model) for a meager five dollars. This one is in great condition with hardly any wear. A new one would cost around fifty dollars. These make great map cases, especially if you have a Chessex Mondomat. The connectors for the shoulder strap of the telescoping tube I got from Blick's just couldn't hold up to the weight of vinyl mats plus laminated maps.
I only spent about seven dollars for everything, Plano case, ruins, animals, all!
