Transporting your rig

How do you guys carry your rig around? I have a million and one different cases, which means I put the rig up when I arrive on site. Recently I could do with just arriving and shooting straight away.

Anyone have a case big enough to house a rig? (Rails, follow focus, 35mm adaptor + camera?)

I had an aluminum case custom built in Bangkok per the attached drawing, so that I could carry the entire rig from place to place. The workmanship was great and it cost me less than $200.

When I pull the center section I can transport the full rig (after I remove whatever lens I'm using and the matte box, but I can leave the follow focus on.)

I keep my lenses in a custom built wooden box that slips into the small compartment on the right side of the case. The adaptor is stored under that when not in use. There are several compartments where I can keep spare parts, including three shallow ones in the lid. They're accessed by opening a panel that is held in place with velcroed straps.

I'll try to take some decent pics of the case.
