This small trench art model plane is made from a central bullet cartridge and bullet (about 4" long). The wingspan is a little over 6".

The plane has a tiny crafted engine and copper propeller that spins. The plane sits on small spoked wheels that turn as well.

The wings have small holes for wire rigging, but I don't believe that the craftsman ever put the wire on the plane.

Overall the plane is in excellent condition and is an unusual example of early aviation trench art.

I have several other trench art planes and related items currently posted on Collectors Weekly.

Thanks for looking,

    No, this was not ebay-- I got it in an auction with a few other pieces of trench art.
