Progress...

I contacted Sportube and they were kind enough to send me just a top for the cost of the shipping.

So, I created a "Supertube" consisting of two top halves, with a 24" section of the old, damaged "bottom" half riveted into a shortened top section. Since the top section of the Sportube is considerably stronger than the bottom half, this should be a much better setup than before (sans wheels).

Then, I made a Coroplast box (6mm) which fits like a sleeve inside and both tops close all the way, protecting the box.

Now, I just have to figure out how to place my wings and fuselages in the box with some foam.

Thanks for the inspiration...
