    Early bombs

    “Thin Man” Plutonium Gun Type Bomb Casings in 1944. In the background you can see “Fat Man” casings. It is unknown whether they are the early Model 1222 “Fat Man” casings, which required 1,200 bolts to assemble, or the later Model 1561 casings which were substantially easier to assemble and which were used for the production versions.

    If you ever get a chance or are interested, read "General Kinney Reports". The ingenuity those guys used to do the near impossible makes you proud to be an American.
