    WW2 German 13mm saved from scrap

    Thought i would post this WW2 German 13mm i have just finished,,
    I guess its not really a restoration more of a frankenstein save.
    It came to me cut in half and rusty (see pics), I trimmed the cut edges back and using my new mini lathe (chinas finest ) i turned a piece of wood to fit in the centre careful to make sure the final result was the right size of a full cartridge
    Now i know some might be appalled that i have made something that more than likely never existed but i think now its better than the two sad rusty halves and looks good as a decorative/example of a 13mm round.

    Any Live or Dug ordnance shown by me has been disposed of by military EOD personnel .

    Very crafty! Definitely a better end result.
    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.
