Odd size Flare box/waterproof storage bottles

I'm after a pair of plastic storage bottles/flare containers for my A frame. I have a couple of S/s holders bolted on but they seem to be an odd size. The max width/dia. that would fit is about 180mm. Most of the containers I can find of a decent capacity are 240-270mm. There isn't much stowage space on the boat so they would be very useful. Any ideas where I can buy some?

They look like they are designed for Pains Wessex flare boxes. I've got some in the shed I'll check the sizes when I get a mo.

Thanks for the replies. I think the larger pains Wessex and plastimo are too big. I have a pains Wessex inshore flare pack and they are in a quite a small container. I want to fit the biggest I can find to fit as I can use one for flares/safety kit and one for general use.
I had seen the pains wessex inshore one on eBay, if I could get a pair of those they would do if I can't find anything a little bigger.
