    Here is what I did with mine (post#7), the head is foam covered with black silk . I have never liked faces with details on mannequins so I either paint them black or cover them. But that of course is a matter preference. Whatever you do, put it on something that resembles a human head shape.

    Hello grippie. The two places below have both had bombs like you are looking for in the past. I haven't been to either of them in the past year or so, but for the ten years before that each of them had these type bombs Korean War vintage practice bombs. They also had a couple Viet Nam era inert bombs. So you understand, the practice bombs like you see in the picture here are made of sheet metal, about like you would find in a gas tank, and weigh 5 to 10 pounds. The ones in the picture on this post were filled with water or sand to give them the required heft. An inert bomb is a real bomb casing, but without any explosives inside. They tend to be much heavier, a hundred pounds or so without any filler. If they wanted to actually drop it they could fill it with sand or concrete to get up to the correct weight. I think the inert bombs they had were about 250 pound bombs, but they are much less than that without the filler. Good luck.
