Default WWII US M1 & M1A1 Anti Tank Mines

Hey Guys,
I tried searching for threads with the American WWII Antitank mines and dindt find much so I figured I would start a thread about these WWII U.S. antitank Mines.

I will post some practice mines i have and some that I made to look like HE mines. Here is a repo box I made and filled with repo HE mines. I only use practice mines that are too beat up for display as is.

Early mines like other ordnance were all yellow and later painted OD with a yellow stripe on bottom. here is a pic of original M1 HE mines that were over painted Olive Drab, andan original M1 painted yellow.
