    Hi

    This is my B167 purchased for a fiver from a flea market a few weeks ago. Was painted in green metallic Hammerite but after applying paint stripper I uncovered some of the original green.
    The inside is Hammerited and scraping some off reveals clean metal. Were these primed before spraying?

    Smoke producer is a phrase to over all natures and/or types of ammunition which were designed primarily to produce smoke, without having to name them individually and which may be packaged in many different ways to cover their different sizes and shapes. These include mortar bombs, shells (QF fixed, separate and breech loading), grenades, smoke generators, signal cartridges, base ejection smoke shell, skytrail shell and rockets smoke puff flash, to name but a few.

    B167 colour

    Another B167 recently bought, a Mark I and has a V before the date 1942. 'V' being the manufacturer?

    This is another box that has had the metal separator slats inside hammered flat to store things better. Painted in that light blue Hammerite; then again everything was painted in Hammerite years ago!
    Removed the metal slats to straighten them out and as the photo shows uncovered this dark green paint that I'm assuming the bare metal was sprayed with before assembly.

    I think the V you are refering to is the WD arrow mark

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

    Hi

    Definitely a V, not an arrow.

    The horrible blue Hammerite has a thick coat of grey primer underneath and where the metal hasn't rust, it is clean, no sign of brown or pea green. Now ready for priming and I think I'll be going for aluminium flat solid rivets to refit the removed metal panels.
