I like it!

We also need some WWII RAF style bomb trolleys too!!!

Would order a few of those if they were done?

You have 2 WW2 US trailers in your shop. What makes the difference (except design)?

 

Older and newer type? Used for different payloads? Usen by different branches or in different theaters of operation? Just the same use but ordered from different manufacturers due to high demand?

The only photos of the MkII cart that I have been able to locate showing it being used on a tarmac, have been in the PTO. It was smaller and more nimble - could be towed by smaller tractors.  The M5 cart on the other hand, was a hefty piece of equipment with a much higher bomb load capacity -- mainly used to service B-17s and B-24s (500 and 1000 pounders).    So the MK II was more commonly used to arm fighter-bombers like the P-38 / P-47 / P-51 I believe.

Shameless plug for the Weaver M1 lift which was often seen with the M5 to offload bombs and roll under the belly of the B-17 ;-)

I never knew you made the M-40 parafrag bombs. I know a few of us were looking for those or figuring a way to scratch building them.

Yup - I release the M40 cluster bombs mid-last year, and the "singlets" or individual "bomblets" if you will, just about a week ago!
