Those tool box are nice, but way overkill for what you need, your not shipping across country.
Plus you really can't stack them when traveling without strapping them together or they will slide all over.

They do stack, but not securely. There are four tiny raised protrusions which "lock" with the base of another. I don't plan on stacking higher than 2 for transport anyways.

Overkill is better than not enough! Smile

The thread got moved, no wonder I couldn't find it and people have different likes from milk crates to full inclosed whether seated box's. This is what makes it help full for different new members to use what works for them

To each his own, whatever works best for you.   All I know is I started off using toolboxes and found they were wasting too much space. I know people think my milk crate system is ugly, but it works best for me. 

In the space of 2 toolboxes, which can carry only one tank each, I can pack away 4 to 6 tanks.

And when you travel the distance I do to the field, you want to make sure you still have tanks running at the end of the day.

Everything is personal preference! Very Happy

I don't think I've seen your milk crate system. I assume you put in dividers and have them inserted with barrels pointing out the wide open end...

The base piece of foam. 26" x 9.5"
Target Vehicle the Jadgpather.




Three layers for secure transport.
4.5" wide base for the tank bottom hull to sit on and 15.5" long to let the tracks sit inside freely. 6" with finger lift out cut on the front (to get fingers under the front edge of the hull). On the back is track spacer to prevent major shifting rearward and the vertical piece of foam at the rear to protect the delicate bits (exhausts).

And the fitup is GOOD! You can fit a strip of 1" foam along the sides still if you are worried about side to side movement. (Tracks over the center raised section should prevent that...)

I have not glued the foam togather yet, but I am going to look and see if the transmitter can fit under the front barrel. If not, that is OK I plan on having a separate battery/transmitter/parts box if required.

I may even manufacture and mount a removable tank stand that can sit on the lids of these boxes...

All you need is a led light strip on the underside of the lid for a show light lol. Let me know when I can get some from you. And you used 3 per case?

So with the Jadgpanther, you need the barrel elevated. The standard HL 27MHz transmitter will fit under the barrel and the "loop" on the top/back of it will rest against the front upper hull.

Measuring the KT tonight.. It is wider, but fits... Barely.
