Wow--Andy was talking about your break when I went in the store the other day (I, too, live in Indy). Great store, great guy and a tremendous break.

This is the first hobby case that has looked good but I also believe the better hobby cases will start coming out now that Jumbo cases are dwindling so hobby prices don't deflate.
