WTS: Resin US WWII 37 and 75mm Projectiles for Tanks and Antitank Guns

Post by SteveM8 » Sun Jul 19, 2020 2:48 pm

I was asked by one of my tank owning friends to supply a batch of 100 mixed resin reproduction 37mm projectiles in the form of M74 AP, M51 AP and M63 HE. These will go on his M16 casings and be used to fill the ammo racks. That order has been filled, it seems that I find myself in the resin projectile business. I use copper paint for the driving bands and have turned my metal lathe into an ink stamping machine for the markings. I have also successfully produced an M72 75mm AP projectile. 37mm rounds are $30 each and can be shipped by USPS flat rate small box to anywhere in the US for $8. The 75mm are $95 each and can be shipped in a $15 flat rate USPS box. I would be happy to discuss volume orders. The bottoms of all of the projectiles have been machined flat with no tracer or fuse holes. You can see the markings on the driving bands of all the projectiles. You can contact me at witkows@yahoo.com.

M42 3 inch HE shells are not available. I have not worked out the stamping for them yet since they can be marked "3G" or "76G". A standard M48 fuse threads right in. I will probably have to mold the fuses also.

37mm canister rounds are now available at $49 each, and I will pay the shipping in the lower 48 states. One of the canister rounds in the photo is the real thing. M42 3 inch HE rounds with M48 fuses are almost ready. I am waiting for yellow ink and a stamp to complete them. I also have Polish 37mm Bofors antitank gun armor piercing projectiles.
