    Hi guys..i am sure we all have some part or another from a aircraft with history behind it..and that would be nice to share and talk about..perhaps research some parts and get information regarding bits and pieces..

    any thoughts about that..sharing pics and info :)

    everything from a small scrap part dug up, found, given..in family possesion and so on..

    GF

    Nope, I own no parts of WW2 aircraft, unfortunatly...

    I would love to own any part of a Bf 109, Fw 190, any WW2 German aircraft as a matter of fact.

    The only "relics" of aircraft that I own are of the my helicopter I used to crew in the Army, but that is not WW2...:lol:

    yes I own parts from an Bf 109G-6 and a Fw 190A-8/R2 shot down - (both of them) on September 11, 1944, the A/C were from JG 4. Also have parts of a B-17 from the 100th bg shot down by JG 4 fighters on the same date.

    Have some parts from a Recon Ju 88D downed in the area of Norway as well

    start a thread up GF ~

    cool..post pics ! would love to see those parts. also the 88 parts.. that i love..
    i can start with one of my favoriteparts..a Mg 17 i dug up from a Bf 110-C
    this Bf 110 was the first to be shoot down during the invasion of Norway 9th april 1940.. it was flown by Erhart kort and heinrich Bockenheimer.. both KIA..
    the 110 was shoot down by a Gloster gladiator from the norvegian fighterwing protecting Oslo and flown by Rolf Tradin. this was the first areila dog fight in norvegian history and the first plane to be shoot down over norvegian soil..itchrashed in a swamp so everythingw as preserved ( including pilots ) but very damaged..the Mg 17 has a slight bendt from the crash but except from that its in good condition

    here is a picture of how it looked when i found it.. ( the bright spot is from the flash..just took a snapshot from the picture in my photoalbum ) and also the main ammobox for the four Mg 17`s mounted up front in the nose of the Bf 110.. the bullets are all in my shed.. some 3000 of them.. in different shape as the crash was pretty hard

    Nice stuff, Mr.G. Hope that ammo has been 'made safe'!
    This is all I have these days, a bomb selector panel from a Lancaster. No provenance or history, unfortunately. There are a number of items advertised on E-bay recently, such as instruments, at very resonable prices. If they are genuine, as advertised.

    how do you make ammo safe ??
    that is a neat panel !! and also a great part from a lanc. i love weapon and bombingsystems. I posted this item on onether thread here also today..its from a german fighter shoot down during the battle of the bulge by a norvegian spitfirepilot. i got the items a few years back.. it belongs to a german traingschool !! FFS A/B 24. its a nice relic that i am kinda fond of !!
    there is a lot of fake items out on the net so i am always careful with that..but when i get items from the old veterans or find them myself then i know its the real thing ( like this emblem and the Mg17 )

    here is some more relics i found when i did the Bf 110 dig. what you see on the picture is two Mg 15 drums, Mg FF bullets, wallet with papermoney and coins, luftwaffe beltbuckle, courscalculation papers for the pilot and the thick book standing upright contains the invasionplans for Zerstørergruppe 76 regarding the attack on Norway. it has all the secret codes and times..alternate targets..cities and a lot more..i could perhaps put some pictures of the pages here if anybody wants to see.. what i like about it is how they have used german town names as "double " for norvegian towns.. so when speaking on the radio ( if somebody was listening ) and they mentioned a german town is was actually a norvegian town they spoke about..i can if wanted take pictures of the pages..
    the Mg FF bullets i have unscrewed the top on and removed the white plasticlike explosive on the inside ( i threw one on a fire just for fun ..and man..that thing exploded.. )

    Nice stuff Mr.G! The code book, with the 'German' town names is very interesting, worth a lot, historically and in money terms!
    With your ammo, in case it deteriorates and becomes unstable, you'd need to remove the bullet head and empty the propellant, and take out the percussion cap from the base. These should be disposed of safely. The empty case could be cleaned, to remove any residue, and the bullet heads replaced. It would be better for your Ammunition Technical Officer to tackle the job!
    Good luck!
    Terry.

    I know it's not WWII, but my dad has a mach gauge from a jet. It's fairly old, but I have no idea what it's from.

    IIRC soaking the ammo in diesel for a day or two should kill the primers... don't do it on my speculation, however..

    If you weren't fooling with explosive ammo, an inertia type bullet puller would work on the (i.e. 7.92mm) ball round/api stuff.
