This WWI era battleship is made from shell brass, cut and soldered to form the hull. The smoke stacks and deck guns are made from rifle cartridges. The ship is 8" long and 2 1/2" tall. I have collected trench art for about 30 years and cannot recall seeing another battleship model.

    So you must have a nice lit up showcase for these treasures of yours, another unusual piece that must be quite rare as I have never seen one, although truthfully I have just got back into it recently. So everything I posted was a recent aquisition.

    Thanks Phil. A showcase or shelves would be nice and it is in my future plans. Now they are just EVERYWHERE in my bonus room!
