I was thinking of doing that for one of my winter projects. I've done a lot of research for resin casting and think they shouldn't be to difficult to make. Easier said than done. If I get to it this winter I will post info with pricing if anyone is interested.

Sometimes there is a guy on Ebay which sells boxes for the M1A1 anti-tank mine.  He claims that they are originals, but they are reproductions.  It is a very nice repro, I would have paid that much for it knowing it was repro before hand.  I know it was a reproduction because when I got it I could smell the fresh stain on it and my friend bought one and it had the exact same markings on it.
