Paul, our caster, buys lots of VERY cheap plastic kiddies' 
lunch-boxes from a  local surplus and cheap stuff store - they are 
various sizes, mostly around 10" x 8" x 3" or so. They cost him a 
couple of quid each, and usually have some horrible gaudy sticker on 
the front that peels off - you're left with a fairly sturdy plastic 
case with snap closures and a handle  (OK, in a nasty colour of 
plastic usually, but at least they are not going to get mistaken for 
pistol cases!!) that, with a foam liner added, easily holds either 
figures or 2-3 25mm vehicles; I suspect they would also do for 
starships with a suitable liner shape. An extra advantage is that 
no-one is likely to steal what they probably think contains your 
kids' sandwiches and packet of crisps!	;-)
