Model 39 Eihandgranate

Postby TheChef » Fri Feb 10, 2017 12:53 pm

I've 3D printed this egg grenade at the height (76mm) I found on Wikipedia ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_39_grenade ) but it seems really small.

Where they really this small ?

The actual body of the grenade of my repro one is about 76mm but the fuse adds on another 20mm or so.
Regards,

Ralph

Ah I did overall 76mm, so it should be about 20mm bigger, but still quite small, close enough though :good:

Here's mine next to a tape measure. I'm sure your one will still look good hanging off your belt.

if nothing else it would probably be a good buoyancy aid for your keyring :)
I've fired a bullet on every continent. Nearly hit someone, too.

Okay, now re-sized and re-printed, just needs painting, I also took the opportunity to re-engineer and make the cap removable :D

If anyone is interested I could print these out for you at cost - £2 each raw unpainted, just don't ask for 50 cause they take 4 hours each to print :shock:

Cheers
Russell
