    Here's a sectioned F.W. (Canadian) No.36M Mk I, Mills, i was given by an ex-UDT instructor. It was a bit of messed-up, so i had to make it presentable by adding yellow putty for Baratol and make-shift striker, filling screw, igniter & detonator. All the other parts are original. It was painted light green, so i painted the body to as close to original as possible. Enjoy...Thanos.
