And A Boom Boom: C4 Explosives Prop

The Stargate SG-1 costuming forum has a handy tutorial on how to make your own prop block of C-4 plastic explosive. It's exactly the kind of thing that would come in handy for a Delta Green-style game. Insert the usual disclaimer about not being an idiot while carrying or displaying prop explosives here.

"On the show they have two version of the prop C-4 plastique explosives, one made from a block of wood, and the other from a block of plasticized clay. The clay based one is used when they need to stick a detonator in it. The wood one are for carrying or just holding since they are much lighter then the clay version.

The overall dimentions of the block of C-4 is the same as 4" long piece of 2"x4" lumber. 4" long by 3" Tall by 1.5" thick.

The wrapping is made from the same type of paper that those brown paper bags are made out of."
