Default Building a Custom Battery Box, Ideas and Sources?

All:

I need a replacement battery box and door for my foam trainer. The old one is useless and too small for my new batteries. I do like the door it has an the support structure. The box itself has disintegrated but I could make this out of wood or ???

What I am looking for is help making or buying a compartment door and frame. About 3" x 3" plastic.

I cannot find any when googling around. What do people do? I would like it to be easy open and shut so I can use 3 sets of batteries simultaneously without unscrewing the wings every time. There is plenty of room and support under the nose area to increase the size of the stock battery box. It would be great if I could find different size plastic frame and door assemblies to choose from. Then I would simply make the hole bigger and glue the new frame in.

All Ideas are welcome.

Thanks

SWR

Just get some light ply from your LHS and make your own.
