    Zeit 41 airburst/impact trainer fuse

    Sent to me by Waff,this is a rather well made dummy
    fuse for the butterfly bomb,and it needed a few moments of tlc
    but for some reason it has grown on me.

    It is rather like the bling of fuses but is definately made from the same
    factorys as the standard 41 impact fuse.

    If anyone can put any light on this that would be most helpfull.

    Hi Mate

    I think once ive made a brass timer/setter for it this will be one of my favorites,(i think its a brass thing)
    One of my next purchases has got a steel type plug fuse which i am keen to compare with the brass one as i suppose they must have made demo types and training fuses.

    Best phil

    Thats blown that theory then mate

    As you said a cutaway charge,do you think its an original factory cutaway
    as they might have manufactured that fuse specificaly for displaying in cutaways? at that time.

    Would be nice to think that it is indeed a factory cut?

    cheers

    If Germans made artillery fuzes of Aluminium, Zinc, Steel, Brass and Bakelite - why not bomb fuzes as well ?

    The early Bomb fuzes ELAZC50 (5) and the reworked (28) were indeed made of brass but in 1936 were produced in Ali
