French P2 Thevenot Excelsior

Heres my latest bit of handy work.
The tin plate head is filled with hundreds of small pieces of 5mm wire cut into short lengths and encased in a wax like resin. It should have a cloth skirt attached to the handle to help it land nose first.
Cheers, Paul.

A really nice work, Paul! Particularly interesting, because I've never seen the uncut original yet.
