SC 50 with black noses (denoting additional longitudinal booster, assuring good expansion of explosion in a cast HE charge after long storage).
Thank you very much for your help, Grzesio.. :)
... there are so many possible combinations that it is quite difficult for someone not expert in the field to differentiate between all of them... :roll:

Here another image from Ebay. I think French bombs. Any idea ?

I'd say, SC 1800, with yet another variant of fins.

Hi all,

Does somebody know the significance of the white painted nose on these bombs ? I think SC250 bombs....

ZC 250 A Weiss practice bombs - white noses indicating white smoke charges. Cavities for the charges can be clearly seen on the bomb bodies.

I'd say, SD 1700 - a rare bomb. It appears too long for the SC 1000 - notice, the distance between the fuse and the tail cone is approx. 2 times greater than between the fuse and the suspension point.

Yes, it is. The axial distance between the rear fuse pocket and the suspension point is always 30 cm in German bombs. In case of the SC 1000, the distance from the fuse to the tail cone was smaller than this (say, ~20 cm), in case of the SC 1000 L2, the distance was slightly greater (in the order of ~35-40 cm). But here, the distance from the fuse to the tail cone is twice as big as from the fuse to the suspension point - thus I'd say, it's the SD 1700. QED ;)

Thank you very much, again, for your reply, Grzesio. :wink:
Very useful information ... You have to thread very fine to be able to distinguish the different models of German bombs... :)
