    Re:2pdr AP colour codes

    I cant afford it and due to space and money I am just trying to get one example of each type of WW2 shell /ordnance etc ,I already have a 2pounder AP so that will do me. I just love window shopping and if the price is right and the wallet heavy enough i'll treat myself.
    Currently waiting for an SD1 to arrive.
    Will post more rarish items I see on here if no one minds.
    Cheers DAZ
