If you ever thought of making your own replica bangalore torpedoes and you want them to be perfect, get the right OD #1 matte paint (I got mine at Gustaaf Desmet in Gent/St Amandsberg) and a set of stencils.
I ordered mine from Noosta Direct. Paul there has been very helpful! So coming soon, I hope, are photos of my restoration project, using original connecting sleeves. If anyone has tips on how to make replica det cord to wrap around them, I’d be much obliged. Some kind of rope or cord of the right diameter and wax coated?
