This trench art piece really shows the resourcefulness of the craftsman. He collected numerous soldier and battlefield items to assemble the model.
The hull is made from 2 joined rifle shells.
The deck is a clip for rounds that has been shortened.
The stacks are .45 casings.
A crossed rifle insignia (US Infantry) has been split and holds the front rigging.
The standing base is out of split bullets.
A small brass piece was used to model the working propeller.
Overall, I think it is a good representation of a WW1 era sub.
