    Sources for Replica WW2 Projectiles

    Thought I'd start a thread for those of us who prefer a cartridge with a replica projectile as opposed to an empty case (until a real one can be found).
    If you know of any manufacturers of any good WW2 era replica projectiles please let us know- I believe that there are more cases than projectiles to go around!

    The ones I am aware of;

    On ebay a user name rgreen502 from Ohio USA makes resin Japanese 47mm AP. I have seen these and they are excellent quality.

    On ebay a user from Italy username 90pnzgren has German 20mm HE/AP, 37mm AP and 88mm AP replicas. They look very good in the photos. He had no web site last time I enquired.

    cdvs.us (formerly Big Sky Surplus) has German 88mm replica projectiles

    Ravennaarmory.com sells American 37mm M2 Canister resin replicas

    I have way too many to list.
    But I would theorize that like myself, people are primarily interested in the projectiles that are hard to obtain due to either rarity or shipping constraints.

    For example British 2 pounder squeezebore; French 37mm APCR; French 47mm AP (both tank and anti-tank); Japanese HEAT; Big heavy Russian projectiles(100mm, 122mm...) etc.

    That seems to be the catch-22.
    If you have an original, you don't need to be bothered with making a replica.
    If you need it, you don't have anything to make the replica from!
    Maybe we should change this thread into "How to make a resin replica".
    If it is easy, maybe people can make and trade replicas. Anybody an expert in resin replica techniques?

    If you want to make resin copies of projectiles/fuzes etc,check out your local hobby store.Easy mix moulding silicon and resins are available from them, not cheap but depends how serious you want to get.
    The silicon will hold a lot of detail,and won't damage the original,so skilfully painted/finished, apart from weight they are very effective.I have made copies of 20mm and 30mm projs. and fuzes,to fill empty cases and projectiles.
    Handy if you want a link belt of Hispano, but don't want to use the collector items!
    If more people got involved the relative cost would be offset by the variety of product for trade.
