I guess a 1173-1 was in F4F so it is earlier one for sure. Do you collect them or just bought as a nice items?t
Simple pedestal mount would be the best do display it.
Simple pedestal it is. I have had the material for years. Thanks for incentive to put it together.

Mounted and labled they are more likely to be saved for future generations than in a box.
I mounted the 1173-1 on rectangular base and rotated a few degrees so that when the base is parallel to the desk top, the numbers more easily visible when it is on the right side of my desk. I had a piece of round so I made round base. You can rotate it anyway and it does not look crooked no matter which way you rotate it. Not that it really matters
If you have any ideas for how to display the 1173-2 with a inert factory sample m82 frag please let me know.

I guess for a m82 frag the simple plate would be the best. I guess frag have a hole at the bottom so you can easily attach it to the plate.

Have 4 grips (3 are 1113/4 series) - need to restore 2 to flyable condition. If anyone has a maintenance manual or lead on parts, please let me know.
