    Mini 8 inch.

    This ones a mini 8 inch projectile, I understand these were used by salesmen when trying to sell the real thing - certainly easier than trying to carry around a full sized 8 inch projectile.
    I forgot to measure it but its about 40mm across.

    Hi Dave,
    Very nice ! Do you have any more of these ? I guess there must be a whole load of these rep rounds to collect.

    Unhappy Real deal !

    Excellent item Dave !
    And so nicely marked too.

    The only "Reps" samples I ever saw were the real thing taken from the production line just before filling!
    One "Rep" I saw had a car boot full of 76 and 105 TK rounds (got me drooling !) bet that would have been interesting if he had been "pulled over" on the motorway

    A friend of mine has one that's rather nice, a mini 18 pounder, this ones a bit smaller than the 8 inch one, about 30mm across.

    Question

    Another really nice item and I wonder how many are around out there ??

    I had never seen the miniatures until Dave showed the 8 inch shell and also the 18 pounder.
