    Thanks folks! The biggest job in making this cutaway model was making the ACAD drawing of the fuze and translating the posting in three languages ; Dutch, German and English. There is some more interesting submunition and minelet stuff on the way (I still have to finish it).


    @ madbomber
    Taking into account however the latest financial cuts and the investment stop the Dutch Army is suffering from now -according to the papers-, soon there'll be nothing but thin air left to be cut .

    pzgr40 - Amazing!! Your sections never fail to impress. Your write ups are also fantastic.

    What I would like to know is if you have an all-time favourite from all the different sections you have done? If not one then maybe your top few??

    It's some different series. For instance the DPICM shells, The 8,8cm Flak 18 shells (1 to 21, just received No. 22 and 23), the collection of 35x228 shells and some other stuff. I am also preparing a posting about a AA-1 Alkali cutaway, however I have to find someone who can translate russian to English for me.

    Does ANYONE know where I can get an inert BLU-42? I have been trying to get one of these for a while now but don't seem to be getting anywhere.

    many thanks and regards

    There are very few 42/54s around. I know of about 10, all in collections and I know of no extras.
    All dug or live ordnance shown in my posts is under EOD control and has been or will be dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel

    OK, gentlemen, this is my very first post here...so I hope it is not seen as unnerving or annoying.

    As I mentioned in the about myself section, I am deeply interested in the production history of munitions, i.e. which firms or state-owned contractor operated (GOCO) or GOGO plants produced them.

    So, I would like to know as much as the experts here are willing to tell me about the development and production of the BLU-42 and 54 munitions during the Vietnam war.

    I will take a wild guess: maybe Honeywell for fuzes and Aerojet for the explosive?
    If you do reply, please refer to which part was manufactured by whom, e.g.
    fuze: Honeywell
    munitions body: Hayes International
    explosive: Aerojet

    etc.
    The above is just and example, I may be WAY off...

    Thank you to all who participate.
    The pictures and info are superb PzGr40.

    So how would you compare this one to the Soviet POM-1 and 1S? By all descriptions the Soviet did a one for one copy if the BLU 42.
    any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts was dealt with by EOD personell

    The Russian POM-1 is somewhat different.
