The Bomb Mk I has a forged steel body with a solid nose approximately 1.9 ft. long and a slight taper from the maximum diameter to the tail. The base is threaded externally to take a tail adapter, and internally to take a base adapter, which receives the exploder container. The fuze is locked in position by a fuze securing ring. The Mks II and III are similar to the Mk I, except for the tail adapter, which has four equi-spaced holes threaded for attachment of the tail. The Mk IV is modified to take a Tail Pistol No. 30.
The Tail No. 1 Mk I is of aluminum alloy, consisting of a cylindrical strut attached to the tail cone by four vanes. It fits over the tail adapter and is secured by six screws. The Tail No. 15 Mk I is similar to the No. 1 Mk I, but is made of steel. It has a strengthening ring two inches from the base, and is secured to the tail adapter by four wing bolts. The Tail No. 47 Mk I consists of a cylindrical strut secured to the tail cone by four fins which are riveted on. A reach rod extends through the tail cone, and is supported by a spider.
The bomb is suspended from the plane by two suspension bands. British Bomb, 2000 lb AP, Mk 1, Mk 2, Mk 3, Mk 4 (bulletpicker.com)
Ordered these direct from MPM when all the local stockists were sold out. They arrived 24 hours early. They are little beauties, so fine they're going to need some very careful painting!
