    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.

      No problem scott!!! Youve got the best hoard of trench art!! Thanks again for your input on my trophy/hate belt :)
    7. scottvez scottvez, 11 years ago
      I appreciate it. I have been collecting and researching for a long time!

      Your belt is a nice example-- I have the photos, but I don't own an example YET. I used to see them all the time, but they don't appear on the market as often nowadays.

      Ya ive been collecting for 2 years, ever since i inherited almost all my grandfathers antiques when he passed, hes the one in the post i have, the sailor picture :)

      Sounds like he gave you a big "head start" with collecting.

      Do the research as you add to your collections. With the internet there is access to some great items, but there are also a ton of fakes and fantasy pieces out there (you can see a lot on here). Research is much easier and I am always willing to help out, as are many other CW collectors.

      Thanks again,

      Thanks for looking jewels and trunkman. If you have an interest in trench art, be sure to look at my other postings. I have 100+ trench art postings on CW, covering the Spanish American War to modern wars.
