    SD2A Butterfly.

    Hear is my butterfly,sporting its new colour scheme.
    Recovered from Grimsby as part of a school boys
    schrapnel collection in 1941.

    With the addition of a new fuse and charge the butterfly
    looks as deadly as the day it dropped.

    Ok,ive taken a few snaps of the ones i have.
    Im afraid they are in `pre-clean` condition but they are on the long list of `to-does`

    There are a different set of wings included in front of the complete ones,i also have some more fuzes for the SD2`s not pictured.
    The close up of the left hand one shows the correct 41A bayonet type fuze i believe correct for the body type?


    cheers

    A few more showing some of the gaine pots too.
    They are pictured on the shelf and the last shot is when they are in the `room`up in top corner.
    Thats certainly changed since that shot in members collection!

    I hope you enjoy the pics and please give me any good tips for cleaning them up.

    cheers and best
