37mm and 20mm questions


#1

New board member, Question 3,4 & 5

#3, what’s the red 37mm projectile? What color should it be? Where might I find a case for it?
#4, what color should the 20mm Oerlikon be? (or is H-S?)
#5, what can ya’ll tell me about the rest of the 20mm rounds? What color should the 20x113 be?

Hey, if anyone is in Austin TX, shoot me an email.

#4 could be original. The HE MK 3 loaded with Tetryl had a white body. The MK and MOD should be stamped on the projectile body.

The primer looks unfired. Could it still be live??

Not live. Hollow projectile. I guess it could have powder, but I don’t hear anything.

Very poorly hand painted.

Edit1: Case is marked MK2. Can’t see under the white enamel paint on the projo.
Edit2: I can see Mk3 39 C 1 43

If the projectile is a MK 3 then the white paint is appropriate. However, the 20mm is like all others - it looks better with the flashy paint jobs. The HE-I looks good. Red body, yellow band, with the fuze left unpainted.
