    I have had numerous projectiles and several entire rounds made for me by ECRA member Mick Wilkinson, in calibres 20 to 57mm. They are all machined from solid aluminium and painted in typical colours. It's the only way to get representative examples of a lot of items.

    The biggest one he's made for me is the WW2 German experimental 55 x 450B Geraet 58 AA round, shown below next to the other (genuine) German AA rounds of the period:

    20x138B (2cm Flak 30/38), 30x184B (3cm Flak 103/38), 37x263B (3,7cm Flak 18/36/37/43), 50x346B (5cm Flak 41), 55x450B (5,5cm Gerat 58, repA)

    Is there some reason people in the US can't set up a bank transfer? It's not hard.

    Not hard, just prohibitively expensive - maybe more than the cost of the replica. Average cost of a foreign transfer is $27.50

    I have two Czech 47mm cases without projectiles, so I made one out of stainless steel and brass - patterned on my original. I will soon make one more for the other empty case. I didn't really need the reproduction, but it made me feel good to make it.

    I've bought a 40mm Bofors L60 and a 3 Pounder from Milcorem.

    Quite impressed. I wasn't expecting the 40mm to be cast in two parts and some of the original markings have been cast as well.

    Now onto the painting.

    Could someone confirm my belief that a WWI 3PR practice shot should have a white tip and a 1/4in yellow band around the middle?

    Mine has a yellow band around the middle and a large white capital N filling the space between the yellow band and the driving band. A white tip generally denotes armour-piercing.

    Both AP and practice shot of the period have a white tip. Capped shot has the whole cap painted white.
    Practice shot have a yellow band around the middle. 2" wide for above 6" and 1" wide for below 6" down to 3pr.
    N denotes naval service, but AN denotes Australian (naval), CN is Canadian (naval) and NZ is New Zealand (naval).
    These what were termed colonial markings ceased at sometime just after WW1. There were other colonial markings in WW1 to distinguish Land Service.
