Wonder what FF stands for?
Er, thats the polite version.....
1 x Förnicklat for the frame
1 x Förnicklat for the tank
Is that a fact, or just speculations?
If so, the other one here shuod be PB - paint-brass?
Maybe hard to see on the box, but it says 181 FF
Could you please provide some more pictures from different angles and showing some more of the details?
Fact - but I'm happy to be corrected!
I've never seen them use model coding for the paint or plain brass. But show me the proof from a catalogue stating the p is for paint & the b is for brass & I won't argue with you!
What other one? If it's one you have & it is not nickled I would say you have a wrong label - I've seen that before - both completely wrong & also clumsily corrected - ie a Optimus 96 without tin in a carton with 96L label. There was no room for a tin!
Have a look at page 23 (numbered 39) in this Optimus catalogue .
The codes are explained there.
The other one in the reference gallery.
Looking in the catalogue mentioned above, i can see that one should be either 181 B or 181 EB
My PB was only a guess before looking in the cat.
Is it japanned or enamelled?
Certainly at the time of that catalogue the enamel is said to be cream coloured so I'd say it was japanned.
I don't know where you get the B from?
That catalogue gives 181, 181M, 181F, 181EM, 181EF & 181FF.
From memory there were less permutations than that in other catalogues.
OK 181 M it is
A bit of shortcircuit language confusion....
Reading M = mässing and then translating to B = Brass - wonder why????
Separate names with a comma.
