I don't have a photo of it, but currently I'm redoing my carrying case using the stock Tiberius case and layers of an blue foam camp sleeping pad. (They also come in green.)
I had done it before, and I wasn't happy with how I did the finish work, but function wise it was nice.
I just cut out the shape of the pistol and a 'tool box' space (below the barrel) in a few layers, and glued them down to one side of the case. Then did the same for 6 mags on the other side of the case. (If you flip every other magazine you can fit an extra one in and still have space for a fairly solid divider between each one. I found that I needed to lay them flat with the stock case to keep the mags from rubbing too much on the raised part of the marker.)
To finish, I used some fabric to front it with. (Because I didn't really like the blue foam look.) To keep everything in place, I used a wide pad of Velcro loop (the fuzzy part) to cover the 'tool box' and another strip to hold the pistol in place, then stitched Velcro hook (the rough part) around the edges as needed.
To hold the magazines in place, I actually used a wide elastic fabric band (stitched along the sides and bottom and once in the middle. This way it could easily pull away to let you slip magazines in and out.) on the lower half of the magazines, and a strap with more Velcro to hold the tops in.
To keep yourself from losing stuff, try to sew one end of the Velcro straps down. Not only does it keep the straps from running away on you, but it also gives you a better hold by letting you move stuff in such a way that only one end of the strap needs a wide Velcro pad.
In all I had room for 6 magazines in the top, and could easily have changed the shape of the tool box to carry another 2, plus an empty stored in the marker.
Of course, you can save yourself a lot of trouble and just get a few sheets of soft egg crate foam, like what ships in most gun cases. I prefer the fitted cases, simply because I find it looks neater, keeps gear from clinking during transport, and also means I can be sure I have everything at a quick glance. If a slot isn't full, you know you've forgotten something.
That said, I'm thinking I might scrap the stock case altogether, and get something a tad larger. I kind of want something I can open and have CO2 carts stored vertically for easy access, and the stock case, while a great size, is about 1/8th of an inch too narrow when closed.

I use this pistol case for the gun...
Amazon.com: Plano 10137 Gun Guard SE Single Scoped Pistol Case: Sports & Outdoors
( PS The bad review is mine because I bought this for my Invert Mini and it was too small )
...and I use the case it came with from Pepperball to hold my 6 mags (also from Pepperball) in.
The Plano case won't fit anything more than just the gun. I got stuck with the case so I use it.

So you bought something that was too small and so you gave it a bad review? hmm.....
I just throw my gun in my gear bag.. Was given an NXE case for it but never use it.
