Hi all,

Anyone supply me with the dimensions for the 10 round ammo crate for the 60mm mortar rounds (ones with the tube inside). I can find very few images and even less info online so was wondering if any of you lovely people ou there could help me. Im looking to build a few for myself.

Image

Any info greatfully recieved. Found a few dimensions for the tubes, so i suppose i could make an assumption from that, but if anyone has the actual dimensions that would really help?

Many thanks in advance

Chris 'HunStanton'

Thanks for the reply rhhaslar, but with the credit crunch im trying to save money!!! No offence!

Well has anyone at least got some pictures of original ones. More curious about the catches and stenciling now to be honest. The picture above is of training rounds so im unsure if the catches are correct. Any body out there with an original they can take pics of the catches for me? Or even point me in the right direction with regards to pictures online or in books?

Anyone......?

Cheese.
Chris

It might be training rounds that someone has used in that photo, but the crate is for live High Explosive rounds. It is the correct crate that you're after.

Cheers,
Glen.
