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.
