    Another garage sale find this summer...a Canadian version of the UK 11.5lb Cartridge Type Practice Bomb. Also known today as MPB, Modular Practice Bomb.

    Needs a bit of paint here and there...may be a winter project if i'm not balls to the wall busy this season.

    Can you take some photos of the inside of it plz? Trying to figure out how the fuse system worked, to make a inert cross section replica of the fuse and Spotting charge for display purposes to go with my 11 1/2 Lb Modular Practice Bomb. Here's a diagram of the Spotting charge I found.
