Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
I was wondering when you said you use Hydrochloric Acid is that your solution or do you use that to scrub?
Very nice Harry
Thanks for sharing guys.They have all cleaned up well.
superb relics guys, many thanks for posting!!
Awesome thread! Keep posting them. I can't wait until the snow melts so I can go out and find my own
Looking for militaria from 38. Batterie, Heeres Küsten Artillerie Regiment 977, also from 31, 32 and 36. Batterie.
first pass at cleaning up the Unique 17 - have removed that horrible coat of black hammerite paint and think that it looks better in a more natural state. Wont do much more with it I think, apart from a very light rub down and a coating of renwax. Be having a go at the flare gun soon.
Also pictures of my 2 latest acquisitions - must stop spending money . Again from a private collection in the UK and with no moving parts. First is a fairly run of the mill Browning 1922 and the second is a slightly more interesting (imho) Dreyse M1907. I believe it was used in both world Wars, in WW2 by German Volksstrum and Volksgrenadier units.
That has cleaned up superb, the dreyse is a beauty, and the browning 22 also...
