    C218 project

    I have just started a new project with this C218 box made by ELX dated 1943.
    So far I have only found information saying it would have carried 2-Pounder cartridges. I am hoping my information is correct and I will be painting on the correct markings.

    Yes for 2 pr but not the 2 pr No2 cartridge case, the AT and tank gun, it's for the 2 pr No1 case, the shorter case used in the AA gun.

    My guess was the 2-PR QF, 28 cartridges Mk VIII Linked as in the Naval Pom-Pom.
