The Ultimate Edition: Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy Hobby Case is better than traditional paint and mini cases because it is modular. Not only can you easily swap modules out, you can quickly unload the modules from the case to form well organised paint, mini and brush storage at your painting desk. The painting modules are presented in DRPA themed colours to help organise your paints. The brush holder slides off the spine of the case to provide safe brush storage at your fingertips while protecting the sensitive tips.

Unlike cases with fixed layouts, the Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy Case can grow as your needs grow and vary over time. You can buy more modules for your case and only load what you need for the specific project you are working on.

The Duncan Rhodes Painting Academy Case carries up to 72 paints, 12 brushes and a wide range of minis. You can choose from paint modules to fit Two Thin Coats dropper bottles, Citadel paint pots or 25mm dropper bottles for Vallejo and Army Painter. The brush holder uses a memory foam insert designed to retain a wide variety of brush types. 

The Ultimate Edition: DRPA Hobby Case comes with a range of Mechi components to carry your minis, dice, cards etc.. Your modules are re-usable as games and projects change over time. This includes four MechiMax modules for carrying infantry to suit base sizes 25mm (12 minis), 28mm (10 minis), 32mm (10 minis) and 40mm (4 minis). These are the most popular Games Workshop base sizes, however they also fit a wide range of other minis. 

One Mechi single is included in 27mm (fits Conquest or SWL), 30mm (fits Fallout or ASOIAF), 35mm (fits MCP) and 50mm (fits GW and SWL).

For minis with bases over 50mm the set includes three Monster Mechi Singles as 55mm (fits Conquest and Infinity), 75mm oval (fits GW) and 90mm oval (fits GW).

A Monster Mechi Module to hold five 60mm Oval bases is included (fits GW).

Three pieces of MechiMesh are supplied to provide support for the Mechi Singles. A set of six OpenMechi Clips and Anchors allow the mounting of minis with unusual bases or vehicles and tanks with no bases.

The artist inspired graduated ribbing on the corners of the case provides both a grand aesthetic, as well as significant reinforcement for extra protection of your precious collection. The sides are made from the finest quality Australian made aluminium extrusion anodised to 25 micron thickness for enhanced scratch resistance. The frame is made from sturdy ABS plastic with ultra-matt finished acrylic top panels. The case locks feature a secure rotary mechanism and the double articulated hinge features stainless fixtures. 

Each module is designed to the Mechi Standard of 213mm x 87mm. The modules are made from tough heat resistant ABS plastic. The spines of the modules are fabricated from carbon fibre composite to ensure significant gripping force when locked.

Removing the paint brush holder reveals a removable tool that can be used to turn the locks used in many Mechi Modules. This is extremely useful for locking and unlocking the turn locks in a crowded case.

The dimensions of the case are width 10" or 25.5cm, length 8 3/4" or 22cm and height with the handle in the raised position of 13" or 33cm. The weight when loaded with six Two Thin Coats paint modules, prior to loading paint or brushes, is 5.5lb or 2.5kg.
