    I got mine from a place in Dallas TX that Phil Wise uses. They had the exact base dimensions from Philip, so all you had to do was choose how tall you wanted it to be. I think it was around $500 or so.

    Went to my local Tap Plastics yesterday. I wanted two of the top edges rolled like the covers that came with the MR Snowspeeder and MR AT-AT. They called it a "heat bend". The eFX Tie Fighter cover was $250 and the MR Falcon cover was $350. I went with 22 1/2" and 14 1/4" heights, respectively. I'll post pics once I get them in a couple of weeks. I thought cost-wise, it was about right when I was there. Now seeing dlogix's post above, maybe I got a deal?

    ^ I had to have it shipped from Texas to Georgia, so that's probably the difference if you had it locally sourced...

    It is indeed a very good deal! I have paid 450 Euro for my MR Falcon Acrylic Display Case shipped from Germany to Austria.

    Best regards from Austria,

    That makes sense. The falcon cover is a beast and it being fragile doesn't help.

    Wow, that's pretty pricey even including shipping! I was hoping to get something for less than that! Thanks for your help though!!!

    Yeah, those prices seem more realistic to me! Thanks!!!
