Re: what is this?

Very nice-thank you! And nice ground kit! In the first picture I thought there was some sort of protective packing,now i can see it is a metal lining,tacked into the box.I agree,I wouldn't risk damaging the cartons by trying to take them out.

Very nice! What is the material in the wooden cases,to protect the cardboard ammo boxes? Is it original? Maybe you could get some pictures of the wooden crates? Thanks. ---bil
