Case complete, this is fairly heavy. It has two 1KVA transformers in the bottom. The base plate is 5mm Alu and the middle plate is 5mm Alu every thing else is 2mm Alu.

It takes two people, I have carried it mysely but only about 20 metres. Each heatsink has its own ducted fan with its own power supply in the bottom, should keep it cool don't you think??
