    The bigger stuff

    These displays cover ammunition for anti-tank rifles and larger calibres. It has grown a bit since I took these photos...

    Thanks gents, it's taken me nearly 20 years to collect this lot. My wife doesn't mind, I just use a spare bedroom as my study so I keep it out of the way!

    Hi Tony, would you mind posting a few close up pictures of the (what looks like) 57mm apfsds projectile that is on the RHS of the first shelf up please. I've got a sabot for one but haven't see good close up shots of a complete projectile.
    Ta,
    Dave.

    There's a better view of it shown below, in the 6 pdr 7 cwt case. It was actually not intended for serice but was a half-size scale model of the proposed 120mm APFSDS. The projectile in mine isn't complete: there's just the basic body. The fins are missing and I had a nose cap made to fit.
