Default Cheap Bombs

Here is an idea! Maybe someone has already thought of, but here goes anyway. In looking for some bombs for my Ziroli B25, I came across some spent Crossman Co2 cartridges. They were of appropriate shape, added some fins and the perfect looking bomb! Made the fins out of flat brass sheet, 12" x 1" at $1.39 and you can paint em any color you want. Don't know how they are for scale size, but look good enough for me! Here's some pictures.

Can you get us a picture or some video of dropping those?

I'll bet the physics are completely different from the foamies to which we're accustomed.

2oz is nothing , you can also make the fins from cutting a gallon size water bottle into the fins you want .Its plastic , flexable and less likly to hurt someone

Kram I'll try to get some video of the drop, but its gonna be awhile, got to get the B25 maidened first and then try to figure out how to hold the bombs in the bombay so they dont slide around and screw up any mechnics in the belly of the bird. I have enough trouble with Murphys Law, I dont need to help him out any!! lol There's alot of stuff in that bombay area!
