trench art. airplane. really? wonderful example of this sort of collectible. "new guniea" is engraved in very light script on the bottom front. you can see what kind of military pieces were used. base measures 4 5/8" x 1 5/8". shell casing 5 1/4". the end is rough. the plane measures 6" wing span x 6 5/8" nose to tail. there is a screw in the bottom of the front of the plane that inserts into the open end of the shell casing. it balances perfectly. it is heavy....photos tell the story.
