Hi all,

8.8cm Flak shells. I think this image is reversed.... :roll:
Is it possible to fix it with Paint or Picture Manager programs?

It's easy to do it with "Paint"

Right click on your picture and "Open with Paint"

First, click on "Rotate" (1) :

Then, "Flip horizontal" (2).

Save it, it's done. (I hope translations are fine, I've got a french "Paint")

The "shell" has no driving bands, etc. When you take a close look at the second picture, you will see the remains of the tail section, so a heavy bomb instead.
