    I could really use painted wooden mockups of German and Soviet grenades from WW2. Does anyone here have a lathe and enough spare time and patience to help me out?

    You know there are some very nice replicas available for re-enactors and collectors, right? They'd be more expensive then making your own, but they are definately photo quality and ready to go. Heck, you can even get replica Panserfausts.

    Do a web search for "WWII reenacting" and you'll probably find some sources. I believe one good site is www.atthefront.com (or .org?).

    I Google up "wwii replica grenades" "replica grenades" and "russian grenades" and here's the best links I found:


    Here's one source for German replica grenades:

    http://gun-sword.stores.yahoo.net/grgewwstol.html

    Here's another so you can compare prices:

    http://uniquecanes.com/new/item_armory_WWII_replica.php

    This site has a selection of German WWII grenades and Panzerfausts. It looks like it hasn't been update in awhile though.

    http://pacificcoast.net/~gmax/ordnance/Ordnance.htm

    Here's one for WWII U.S. replicas:

    http://www.replicaordnance.com/

    Here's a site with info on Russian and Soviet grenades. No replicas for sale, but it would help if you wanted to build a look alike.

    http://www.inert-ord.net/russ02i/index.html

    Here's a Soviet/Russin reenacting page. They have some good links to vendors.

    http://www.197thguard.com/reenactments_links.html

    Here's guy selling resin cast grenade dummies, including WWII Soviet stuff. It looks like you'd need to paint them and add some detail. The "Stick" grenade looks like it would clean up OK. The egg grenades need spoons and rings to look right.

    http://www.armorcast.com/grenades/


    This site doesn't have replicas for sale, but there's a lot of info from period publications here. It's worth a look for background.

    Armorcast Reenactor Grenades info/link update

    Armorcast Reenactor Grenades info/link update

    Most of the grenades I make are rubber, but I can do them in solid hard resin as well. These will be unpainted.

    for russian WWII paint Testor's Flat Medium Green is (one of many) perfect colors.


    Armorcast Grenades is now Reenactor Grenades:
