I'm doing a little research on the British Metal Ammo Box, or Can. Two different box's were used in Spearhead & Terror of the Auton's.

I searched around for images, & this was the best I could find.

Anyone know of any videos or how to blogs on how to make a metal ammo box out of plastic or wood?
Now that I think of it, anyone who has a 3D printer can make a small version of the energy unit & ammo box. (hint hint)  ;)

I found some measurements. 17 3/4" w x 10 1/4" h 10 1/4
Dose that sound right for the box in the Terror Of The Autons episode?

I wonder if I can make it out of PVC?

Apologies if I'm completely missing the point, but I'd probably just buy the one that looked closest from someplace like this:  https://www.sportsmansguide.com/productlist/military-surplus/ammo-cans-military-storage?d=122&c=407 or this: https://armysurpluswarehouse.com/ammo-cans-containers/?sort=featured&page=2

Thanks for the suggestion, 8) but I'm working on a lo budget. That & I'm trying to work out the creative angel to making a box. Like a cardboard or plastic replica of the box. Just to see If I can do it. Thanks again. :)

That's kind of what I figured.  Best of luck!

I have about 3 of these ammo boxes used for a few different things, plus a couple of other different styles.

I just found a video on how to make a cardboard ammo box.
