WTB - Resin 105 mm projo

Post by GUNNUT in Iowa » Sat Oct 21, 2017 7:28 am

Where can I buy 105 mm resin projectiles?

I need 15 each of them - projectiles only.

I have the cases and am making a display.

I just had an idea earlier today.

I will post information - once I get the "bugs" worked out, if anyone is interested.

Teaser - Did you know that a 2 liter Pepsi bottle is approximately 105 mm in diameter. :lol:

This is what I came up with.

A 2 liter Pepsi bottle with the label removed.

About 3 tablespoons of green paint inside the bottle.

Rotate / move the bottle until the paint is evenly distributed on the inside of the bottle.

A stainless steel "whatchamacallit" cup from Walmart hot glued on the top to cover the screw off cap. (I don't know what the cup is for. I just have a bunch of them in my Shop. If I remember correctly, they were about 25 cents each.)

Thank you.

I enjoyed asking folks what they thought the projectiles were made from - especially the look on their faces, when I told them.

May I hijack my own thread?

A real projectile is located between the 90mm and the 105mm on the bottom right of the photo (brass case). I have one (OK, maybe a couple), but not 15. :wink:
