I just purchased a 3kg Tin and 2 1kg tins
They are smaller than I expected. Especially the 3Kg tin as I thought would go in your assault Pack as a tight fit but its only about 1/2 the size I thought it would be..
I will need to purchase fuses next.
I will put up a pic soon

I was hoping someone with alot more Pionier knowledge would post up
Im sure there are a few Ex Pionier Reenactors Still on the forum.

Any information on the Demolition tins would be e very useful

What are the measurements of the repro tins that you bought? The originals were sized as follows:
- 1kg charge: 5.5 x 7.5 x 20 cm
- 3kg charge: 16.5 x 7.5 x 20 cm

(memory serving)

On the topic of repro charges, has anyone every seen the 3kg Kugel charge? Orb with 16cm diameter, with a canvas carrying/throwing handle and a fuze spout on the one side (looks almost like a kettle spout). They were apparently to be used for tossing into bunkers through firing slits, but the field-lashed 3kg pole charges were apparently more common.

Here is the start of my Tellermine 42. This is a "model" from which I will make a mould. They then will be cast as a resin shell and filled with expanding foam.
This is the deluxe version, it will have a screw off fuse cap, base plate fuse holes and filler caps, handle etc.
Available also will be the wooden transit crate or the 4 mine carry box.

I am still working on the moulds for it as funds become available. It'll be a few weeks yet.
I'll be selling these for $160AU or $200 with the transit case.
Also available will be a 4 mine carry box.

New project.
The Tellermine 42 (in green) along side it's big brother the Tellermine 43 (in yellow)
Just another coat of paint, the stencilling and a protective coat of matt varnish to go.

I found THIS replica online. I am hoping that he will sell to Australia.
For an all metal reproduction of this quality it'll be worth the expense as these are IMPOSSIBLE to get in OZ.
