Anatomy of Fat man: implosion-critical bomb

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    Hi, I am tasked with constructing a scale model of Fat Man that can be broken down. Would anyone happen to know of any particular components, visible structures of the device, and any other necessary details. It is a long term project yet I can find no clear picture.

    Have you checked the Wikipedia article on FAT MAN...


    there are a number of "See Also" and "external Links" at the bottom
    that may provide you information......

    You might also ask at the USA Atomic Energy Commision
    or Energy Department websites.....of course you
    might also get 'investigated" as well so be prepared.
