    1kg Incendiary

    Have manage to repro an incendiary for a display but need to know if they where standard colours or grey body and green tail fin. It is to be used in showing how to deal with incendiaries during the war period so I wanted to make one and not use an original which will only get battered and wrecked.
    Any info appreciated.

    Paul,

    I actually attended an ARP course during the war on this subject and, as far as I remember, the bombs had a dull grey/silver body. I cannot remember the colour of the fins however - after all it was a long time ago! Hope this helps.
    Regards,

    Miguel,
    is the fuze material of those two on right something other than aluminium? It's shining a funny way. All which I have had were of aluminium and corroded the same way as the bomb bodies.

    Yes, they are made from steel. It is heavier than the Magnesium one and harder so with this tail the bomb could penetrate more when hit. The Mag head was an earlier one, but due to its poor penetration power Germans changed it for the steel "nose". The Magnesium fuse was the AZ8312, the steel one is the AZ13A.
