If you want something a little different, Walmart sells these rolling tool boxes from Stanley. A bunch of guys at my field have modified them into field boxes and they work great!

get all the gear that you want in your box. stack it as if going into a box. nod as that for dimensions. assuming you have got a decent set if chisels, a vice, mallet, tennon saw and some imagination you can build a box. i knocked mine up in a couple of spare manual arts lessons a couple of years ago. still going strong

Be careful of the Stanley tool box at http://www.walmart.com/ip/Stanley-Mo...enter/14146142. It tends to fall over if the bottom is not weighted HEAVILY. I tried to use one around the house and I gave it away after multiple tip-overs.

I had the hobbico ultra-Tote field box I liked it fun to build and paint it how ya like. This time around I went with something lighter the Plano Tote More.

But you did ask for a set of plans when I was looking for plans I liked this one.

12 volt battery and two jugs of glow fuel in the base and its not going anywhere. I put a power panel and fuel pump on the side and fed the fuel lines through the side. You don't even have to open the front if you put a selector for the different fuel jugs. Nice and clean and holds everything I could possibly need.

I still use a wood box I custom built as a kid, keep thinking of building a new one to replace/improve on it, but then keep looking at the Stanley box as mentioned above as a bigger/better replacement WITH WHEELS.

Here was my simple one for about 15yrs ... back in 80's ...



The panel was set through one face ... the fuel can in one section .. gear in another ... handle was wardrobe metal clothes rail cut short ... most of models could sit in the U tops of the ends ...

Here's another one I had ...



Centre section had the fuel can and motorbike battery ... ends had 1/2 height open tool trays added ... this was 90's

Earlier this year ... I got some plywood ... knocked up a rectangle box ... about 50cms long, 25cms wide and 15cms height. The box was then divided into 3 sections by two high cross bulkheads about 40cms high.... giving a large centre section for fuel can and battery (7A/Hr SLA) .... and ends enough to put starter and tools in. The panel was screwed to the face of the upper part of one high bulkhead. Fuel pump just under it and pipes led through the ply.
Nothing fancy ... and a bit of dowel through as a handle.
Didn't even need a plan ...

Don't overlook coroplast!

Hi,
Couple of tips here from a guy who likes to help out newbies.
Used equipment is often a headache EXCEPT stuff like field boxes IMHO
So look on the for sale sections hewr on RCGroups and ebay cuz often this kind of stuff goes very cheap.
Also don't overlook coroplast. it is a bit heavy for some airplanes but is PERFECT for equipment. Smaller signs that are to small for airplanes are great for boxes and free too.
Google search for em and you find this kind of stuff http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/s-p-...field-box.html
