Alex,

Love it!

You certainly are a talented man and very lucky to find an original chassis. These things, some of us can only dream of finding.

Jon

There are also unexpectedly curious moments.

I must say, I didn't get burns. It was the paraffin I used to fill the cardboard plugs used instead of plaster in the firecrackers. Gypsum heavily pollutes the mechanisms of the gun.

Original shell box in excellent condition! I think such things should be kept in the Museum.
Our layout is valid. It is intended for participation in military-historical reconstructions and filming in cinema.
We have a few boxes, with a liner adapted to these needs.

My friend Eugene, the owner of Leig.18, acquired a dozen shell casings from the shells and these are the boxes to them.

tintin 44, Yes, you're right, it's a package from Le.I. G. 18.
Specifically, what is in the photo, from the shaped-charge projectiles.

Cumulative projectile 7.5 cm Igr.38-designed for firing on armored vehicles, charging separately-shell, fuse A. Z. 38, A. Z. 38 St. (steel.) Penetration of the projectile to 75 mm. were Filled with a mixture of TNT and hexogen phlegmatized 50/50 or 80/20. There are several types (Hl / A, Hl / B, Hl/ C) that differ in the shape of the cumulative funnel and the head

There is still a metal box on 3 shots.







We have one. But it's severely damaged by corrosion.
