    Hi Dave, I assume Kev's collection has gone to a couple of his close friends, but do you know if anyone is considering picking of where Kev left off on the SD-2 book project?

    I'm hoping someone is going to.

    Nobody is picking up where Kev left off on his book that I know of.

    Dave.

    Dave.
    That is too bad, I know that many of us were looking forward to the book. But I also don't know of anyone else out there who has the knowledge of, or passion for, the SD-2 like Kev did.

    Does anyone know what the little clip is for that sticks out of the side of the main clip? It doesn't seem to have a use.

    Following up on my earlier photos of the 70A fuze here is some information on its construction and operation.
    I don't have a clue where I got this original information from, apologies to anyone who may have sent it to me that I've not acknowledged.

    SD2_Body.jpgThere's a lot of deeply pitted and corroded SD 2 bodies for sale at the moment. It's not so easy to find ones in near-original condition. I'm happy with this 1942 example with most of its original green paint remaining with the red undercoat showing through in just a few places. It's totally inert, of course.

    Just a picture to show all the different wing types.
    The standard set in the centre with the various cut down or small wings to the edge.
