Even though you have found them these are the crates you were looking for I think

Next time you have a similar subject to be scratched take a look at this site. It will help you a lot

Site is in french but it gives you dimensions. Click on details for more pictures and info regarding the crate type.

I've actually just found that site about 10mins ago!! nevermind, are the dimensions in cm or inches?

These are the ones I bought http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/130627055602?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2648

with the site being from France I'm pretty sure the webmaster is using the Metric System and this would make the dimensions in CM. The dimensions of the Pak40 metal cilinder case confirms this (I have one at home) just over a Meter long (103cm) and the diameter is roughly the size of a CD (11,5 cm)
