P-51 Mustang Trench Art Model

This is a really stunning example. The base is made from a section of wooden propeller embossed no. 2 and inset in the top is a small steel ashtray. The model is resting on a point 303 bullet. The P-51 is finely crafted from aircraft alloy and the set has clearly been worked by skilled hands. Almost certainly dating from WWII, this is as nice an example of trench art as we are likely to find. P-51 wingspan 6" (15cm)
