Default SOLVED - Old Blue Plastic Flightbox ID Please

Hi there. Yesterday I had picked up this neat little fieldbox locally. I am wondering if anyone may be able to please help me identify its maker. It is blue plastic, has a removable 'cup' on one side, removable 'tray' on top. The plastic fuel can that is in the picture also seems to perfectly fit the raised edges molded in.Again, any help in identifying this would be greatly appreciated.

I found one of these in a load of rc stuff several years ago but can't remember the name . Gave it to a club member so I don't have it anymore. Sorry.

I have one. It's been in use since about 1981...still use it today. The raised edges will fit around any standard metal gallon can. A plastic can did not come with mine. Couldn't find any manufacturer's name on it and, sorry, my memory isn't that good.

Well, it is good to have a somewhat of a base timeline now. Also thanks for letting me know any gallon can will fit. I do not know if my plastic can originally came with it or not, however, it has beveled edges and snugly fits in place. This is exactly how I came into posession of mine. As well, I am asking as there is no manufacturer marks anywhere on this thing. To me, it is wierd, making me believe that it is an older 'cottage industry' made item.

Ok. So, it is solved. It is a Dynaflight (Craftair) Field Box.

I have one that I got in the early 80's. But mine is a real bright sunburst yellow. I was thinking I got mine from Kraft, but really am not sure.
