Thanks for the replies, I found what I was looking for.  The prototype @ 
VCF West last august was wonderful, and am glad he is finally getting 
the injection molds to work.

The Vacuform he wants to do for the VT05 case, by the way can 
potentially be done with wood molds (if you are good @ woodworking), or 
if you are brave and have a case, you could probably construct a mold 
from an original by taking an impression off it and cleaning that up.  I 
think with the molds at least around here in Orange County there are a 
number of shops doing vacuform type services for all sorts of things and 
could make the cases.

Other locations w/o such as they have here might not have as many 
choices and might have to try doing their own manufacturing.

(The VT05 discussion I'm commenting on is on the same discussion board 
as I received from Nigel Williams via a direct email reply).
