I use a Ski bag . They come in various sizes from 2mtr up . I have one for 2 pairs of skis, can get 2 x1/4 scalies in it. Carry it up hill like a big handbag ducky ! I think they do a shoulder strap for them. Also helps when traveling to keep everything in one place.
I also have a Staufenbiell Glider bag ( large size ) its on their website, or try Topmodell fr site. I can get a 4mtr ASH 26 Multiplex in it and am fairly shure you could get a 3-3mtr f3f type model at a squeeze. Go's on your back like a rucksack.

Hope this helps.

John, does this stuff have the foil on both sides or just one?
Robbie, just on one side. It certainly does the job with the money saved on posh bags to spend on the airframe. Regards John.

I have seen very similar material ( it looks the same ) in Aldi this week, a 7.5 metre roll ( 600mm wide ) is £8.99, well worth a look I have insulated inside my modelling shed with it.

Dave . A few pics that may help.
My Ski Bag is the 2 ski size, they make them a lot bigger, and there's loads of them on ebay . Might even get myself another one.
In the pic of mine you can see it with a Topmodell Swift 3.7mts and a Purbeck ASW 27 4mts in it. I scalie and a f3f type model would be no problem. I use mine to keep everything together in the car/van when travelling. You can pack it at your leisure and the just chuck it in the car/van when ready. Mine is 76" long.
The other holder can be seen with the Swift in/on it . I also use this when travelling. I can get a Luna 2mt, Blade xl 2.5mtr and an Acacia 3 in it . And is 67" long.

To be fair I only use park and fly sites these days.

Hope this helps.

Barry
