Here is a grouping of P-38 airplanes that have been assembled from salvaged bullets and shells.

This was a very popular Pacific Theater form based on surviving examples.

Interestingly, these show variances in size, attachment technique and base shell.

If you like these, be sure to look at my other trench art items to include WW1 era aircraft.

Thanks for looking,

Scott

    Thanks Mich-- they come in many different sizes. My favorites are the smaller P-38s.

    Here is the smallest that I have ever seen:

    Generally, I more of a fan of the "bullet planes", but I do have several cast aluminum and cast brass examples.
