Traditional Test: What the Hell is In This Box?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Bored&Stroked, Feb 8, 2014.

  1. What the Hell Is In This Old Cosmoline Box?

    Okay gang, going to have some fun with you all . . . just to see how many of you might have opened one of these old boxes in your lifetime? :rolleyes:

    Now I've opened a few - this one just today. Wish I had a bunch of them, as I'm a traditional guy . . . like to build old race stuff the way they used to. Henry would be proud of me.

    Time to guess . . . place your bets!

    I'll reveal the contents on Monday - let's see who is savvy here on the HAMB!

    Thingamabobs didn't come in cosmaline after 1944.

    Looks a lot like the same type of box my last batch of Russian ammo came in.
