German WW1 10,5 cm shrapnel shell


Well-Known Member
Here my latest restoration project, which is almost finished. A restored relic (and inert) german 10,5 cm Feldhaubitzschrapnell 16. The tough part begins now: Finding a good "HZ 05 Schrapnell" fuze; I have only a relic one. :tinysmile_cry_t3:

With the help from doctor I finally completed the 10,5 cm shrapnel shell. Here are the photos with the correct HZ 05 Schr.

you have done a good job on that shell.
Have you used filler,or have you just painted over it?

looks good just the same.
one more for your collection!



have you got any images on BOCN of all your relics?

love to see them all together!

Sorry, no. I will post some pics in the near future. The 10,5 exists out of three parts, which were found at three different places ;)

@dano: The HZ 05 Schr. was used on 10,5 shrapnel shells. The HE used the HZ 05 Gr., HZ 14 or HZ 16 mostly.
nice work jens !!
