If you have loads of camera gear and no case big enough, why not make your own! Its simple, easy and effective! 
All you need is:
- spray glue
- lots of foam - came from an old matress and an old sofa - they were scrap pieces and mostly torn up which makes it more messy
- any type of case you want to use - i used a plastic brief case that someone was throwing out

- serrated knife
- scissors

My one may not look so good, but with a bit of patience and effort you can make on that is better than bought!!

Step 1: Adding foam layers

Measure and cut the bottom layer of foam, spray glue on case and foam and stick in applying pressure. Make sure you follow the instructions on your glue!
 
I would add a silk or cotton liner to the top of the foam - It would look nicer...

That's a great idea!
Next time I make one I will most likely buy the liners for the case that way it will be much nicer but at the moment it does what I wanted it to do very well!!
Thanks for the comment...
Very good idea, I was trying to figure out how to travel w/ my large format camera equipment, this will be perfect.
