    Hi Lee
    I picked the fuze up from ebay a few years back , when ebay allowed such things, for a very modest tenner, the guy also threw in a American VT fuze , which is somewhere in the garage will have to clean it up and display.

    Very nice! I bet it was a bugger to cut that case though?
    What type is the fuze?

    Fuze Well;

    Steve,
    There does not appear to have a fuze pocket extending across the filler section.
