German M39 Egg Grenade Framed Blueprint

The Model 39 Eierhandgranate (egg hand grenade) was a German hand grenade introduced in 1939 and produced until the end of World War II. The Eierhandgranate used the same fuse assembly (the BZE 39) as the Model 43 Stielhandgranate ("Stick Grenade"), which was screwed into the top of the sheet-metal body. To activate, the domed cap was unscrewed, and the pull-cord that had been coiled inside it was tugged sharply before throwing at the target.

The colour of the grenade cap indicated the burning time of the type of fuse fitted. Typically, a delay of around 4 seconds was used. However, if a grenade was to be used as a fixed booby-trap, then an instantaneous fuse would be fitted. Enemy soldiers who found seemingly discarded grenades would attempt to use them (expecting a standard time delay) only to be blown up the moment they tugged on the pull-cord. Another scenario was to wire an instantaneously fused grenade to a door-frame in an abandoned building. Then the pull-cord would be attached to the door and would detonate when the door was kicked open by opposing troops.

These wonderfully designed framed military blueprints showcase the design of some of the most famous technical developments of WW2. We have selected a range of aircraft, tanks, weapons and more to present in impressive detail, all framed and set as a unique display piece for anyone's collection. These are modern imaginings of how several famous items and vehicles will have looked during their development in a ‘patent print’ style.

Each print is A4 sized and comes pre-assembled in a black frame. We‘re really excited about these products and are sure they will make a fantastic gift...whether to a loved one or just for yourself!
