Ultracast WWII British Empire Steel Munition Boxes C.224 Mk 1 (135016)

Contents of kit shown above.  Two boxes are included in set.

These ammunition boxes are very commonly seen in period photos as extra stowage on various allied armoured vehicles.  These boxes are easily distinguishable from other boxes by the distinct pattern on the lid.

Some typical uses of this box are:

- 3 inch Q.F. Howitzer Smoke (12 per box)
- 4.5 inch B.L. Gun Cordite W 1st Charge (6 per box)
- 4.5 inch B.L. Gun Cordite W 2nd & 3rd Charges (6 per box)
- 5.5 inch B.L. Gun 3rd & 4th Charges (6 per box)
- 6 inch 26-cwt B.L. Howitzer 4 lb 6 oz 4 dr Charge (10 per box)
- M.L. 8 inch Projector, Generators Smoke No. 23 (12 per box)

The standard colour was Deep Bronze Green ARB02. The British standard service colour was changed some time in 1944 to No. 2 Camouflage Brown.  From late 1944 onward, both colours (Dark Bronze Green and No. 2 Camouflage Brown) could be found in service.

We can only send dangerous goods through our specialised contract within mainland UK. Our web store is unable to distinguish between mainland & islands.

All enamel paint and thinners count as dangerous goods and therefore the following applies to all purchases of the above.

Colourcoats paint & Colourcoats thinners have a minimum order quantity of 6 tins or bottles (any size thinners). These can be of any 6 colours (not 6 tins of each colour) and includes tins within coloursets and bottles of thinners. 1 bottle of thinners (any size) counts as 1 tin. Empty tins do not count.

Any order placed for under 6 tins/bottles will automatically be cancelled and refunded.

This minimum order does not include empty tins. These do not count towards the postage quantities and can be sent under our normal postage terms.

If you wish to purchase less than 6 tins, please contact us directly. This will incur a postage surcharge.
