    Used an old tooth brush on the wings to brush off the residue.
    Dried them (make sure you put them on top of something warm like a radiator, to make sure they dry FAST).
    LIGHT wire wooling then oil all over.

    The fuze has been carefully clearned.
    A clip added (Pinched off a spare 41)
    A safety wire/pin thing added (pinched off a spare 41)
    A screw added in the side (pinched off a spare 41 also!!)

    Now its reunited with a bomb casing...........jobs a good un - there's a lot of the original paint on these ones.
    Dave.
    Nice results there Dave
    Looks to be held in a good state of limbo minus the rust and leaves it open for any kind of work should you desire in the future.

    Spare part arrived safely thanks mate.

    Best phil

    I'm glad you left the damage on the wings Dave, definitely gives the bomb more of a sinister look (as it should be).

    Love this one Dave.
