Maki and Graham,
I believe it was Alexander the Great that did the Gulf War water bottle boxes. I have both sets at home. I wish I had a scanner to scan them in, but I dint. Check VLS's web sight, that is where I got them from, to see if they still carry them.

Now that you mentioned it.. I remember AtG having a set. Thanks for the reminder.. Anyways, my boxes came with some Tamiya items (I believe I just asked for info on their new releases) and they snail-mailed me some pictures and included the boxes..
