    I suspect although these are Z marked,they were never armed up as tail bangers and hense the screw cap stayed in place.

    Although that could be changed if i manage to get the right parts for the ends

    Nice example i cannot see the gain pot in the picture, is it steel or bakerlite like the SD1, SD2 gain pots. Dave

    I've had this one in my collection for some time. Not perhaps the best example of an incendiary I have ever seen but unusual in that it has the same Z mark near the tail fin.
    Removing the tail fin reveals that there is no plug usually found on these just the threads, leaving me wondering if it did, at one time, have an explosive charge fitted? The tile breaker nose is firmly fixed in place, but is without all internals.
    Apart from the ones that Paul has shown in this thread this is the only other example I have seen with this Z mark.
