Do you mean the grey ones the militery use? They're made by Barrus. Not sure if you can buy them unless your the navy....although you might be able to find some used ones somewhere.

Babcocks in Southampton have tons. Try giving them a ring.

The link doesn't show any but it should have a telephone number for you.

A word of warning don't turn up on spec. They like to be given at least 24 hors notice.

Matt,

Oh well, they had loads in April when I was nosing around the Seariders. If you do get some from there I suggest you think about getting a few of the Flare boxes.

You can buy them from Barrus, (lots of people do) although the Black tanks are actually diesel tanks as they have a feed and return on them. The Grey ones are the petrol ones!.
