    Thanks for the picture I can see exactly what it is now! How bizzare that it seems to fit with the other part listed by 381st Digger..

    Up next is somthing abit tasty. It came out a wile ago i just didnt get round to posting it up.

    Its the side plate from a ball turret or top turret 50cal. In these positions there was not room for a chargeing handle so it was done on a pully system.

    I have taken a shot with it next to another relic side plate with chargeing handle so you can see the diffrence.

    Hi Andy,
    Again some great finds, well done. A very nice comparison on the .50 cal side plates very tasty finds.
    I love that china Gremlin, just a thought but I suppose the aircrew had him sat on a shelf in the accom block where they could keep an eye on him, because if he was there then he couldn't be causing havoc with their bird? perhaps its a superstitious thing.
    Good Show .

    Luckystrike,

    Its nice to think he had a job like that once apon a time. I can tell you he is so ugly its untrue.
    He is now going to sit on my desk so i can keep an eye on him. He looks like he's not to be trused!!!
