This was the first airplane trench art that I ever bought. I bought it almost 20 years ago.

It is the smallest P-38 that I have ever seen 2 1/2" from tail to tip of fuselage and a 3 1/4" wingspan. Its' size is more typical of my WW1 era planes.

The base is a 1942, 40mm naval shell.

The wings were cut from aircraft plexiglass and are 6 1/2".

The plane is held to the base with a nail and despite its somewhat crude appearance it is the original.

    where do you get these sweet things?

    I have been buying for years, so they come from a lot of different places (antique malls, military shows, online [mostly ebay], and militaria dealers).

    I bought this (and a couple others) through an ad in Shotgun News from a collector in NC. It was during the days of phone descriptions. I was in preparation for deployment for Desert Shield/ Storm and had them shipped to my parents and had to wait about 8- 9 months to actually see them.

    It was worth the wait. All of them were top quality.
