    I'm not sure if this is quite the right place to post this but here goes,
    Early in July there is an charity event I'm envolved with and its being held in a WW2 Sargents mess hall and other air base buildings.
    I'm lucky enough to have an original 100lb practice bomb and thought it would be quite cool to make some repro ones to hang around in the buildings.
    I hope the photos come out in the right order.
    Well after weeks of work here that are. Hope you like my handy work.
    Enjoy Andy

    Great job. I love the B17 Flying Fortress one. So What are they made of?

    Thanks Phil,
    They are a fibreglass shell with wooden ribs and filled with expanding foam and the fins are wooden.
    The original plan was to make metal fins but they cost way to much.

    Yes great idea. Its a interesting and attractive decoration for a museum or a collection.

    Now, lets see how realistic they are. place up a truckload of these outside an powerplant and run some colourful wires criss cross around them. Connect with some colorful beeping lights and weird E.T sounds.



    Free commercial- or maybe only a free-pass to the concentration camp in guatanomo bay in Cuba for the next decade or so


    Only kidding Sir. Good job, you are very talented
