PAK40 Shells/Carrier

Finished some shells & scratch built a shell ready box to dispaly with the PAK. I tossed the 21st Century stock box as it was pretty lame. Did Pzgr39 & Pzgr40 type APshells. Some steel cased/primed & some brass cased, & 1 as marked "Hot Climate" version. Hope you enjoy,
Dirk

Three are Dragon pieces with the shell drilled out & primers installed & 3 are cast resin peices one of the other members cast for me that I cleaned up & detailed with primers, etc. Thanks for the nice comments.

Thanks - I have a Hasbro U.S. M3 37mm that I plan on doing something with. I was thinking of finding a 1:1 cartridge of the right size and getting a friend who reloads ammo to make some inert rounds. Still haven't found the right size - I'm thinking .22 magnum or .30 pistol ammo.

I have a 37mm shell head. Just the projectile if that's any use to you, I can take pics and measurements.

I've also got four 57mm complete rounds (practice rounds they are called) if anybody wants to turn their Hasbro 37mm into a 57mm and wants to make shells. I originally had 12 shells in the original wooden cases. They had never been opened, all dated 1943. It was like opening a time capsule. All the cases and all but the four I have went to a new home with my 57mm gun. Who ever though that in 10 years the cases themselves would be of interest.

Thanks, TTT - I have a good reference pic, so no need. The main issue is that the gun is a little oversized - maybe 1:5 - and I'm trying to decide if I should upscale the ammo a little.
