Many people use the Pelican 1650 case.  But the foam that can be purchased
from Pelican is NOT dense enough foam IMHO.  We get a high-density custom
foam insert made locally, which runs us another $100, but is well worth it.
Also, it is important to properly orient the MP within the 1650 case.

I would suggest checking out my www.dxholiday.com website, which has a
writeup on the shipping the MP in the Pelican 1650 case.  You can get
directly to the article at: http://www.dxholiday.com/dxresources.htm and
then click on "Shipping Equipment".
