Believe it or not there a 1/96 alfa, 1/72 Type 7, 1/72 Permit, 1/144 Kilo, 1/144 seawolf, 6 foot long Ohio, Dumas Akula, Reef Racer and... 1 400 series Heli.
Custom made boxes are the only way. Nothing came home broke.

Jim,

Where did you get the window decal?

As for transporting my models I just strap them to the roof with a remove before flight tag. Great fun when a super trooper pulls you over! Just answer all questions with a funny accent :D

Charlie, you forgot to say when the trooper pulls you over to ask "where's your embassy"?

The ghetto way :

wrap clingwrap around the sub, put it in a cardboard box and
let loose the can of PU foam.
cut to size, cut the sub loose (lengthwise and carefully)
and presto.
add fancy outside if desired.
