OUTSTANDING WWII Czech Air Force 20mm Cannon Shell

This is a superb piece of WWII RAF/Czech Air Force "Trench Art".
A 1942 20mm Cannon Shell as used in the Beaufighter accompanied by a wonderful brass Bristol Beaufighter and Czechoslovakian shoulder title.
The Beaufighter has a wingspan of 20cms and carries what appears to be the cut-out Roundels and Tail Fin markings from a period ID Model of the day. This is mounted on a bakelite and brass stand attached to a timber base. Lovely age and patination to the Beaufighter.
The 20mm Cannon Shell is a real beauty. It has been period made into a table lighter which, with a flint added would undoubtedly still work. It carries a period miniature Czech Pilot Wing badge and really does have the most awesome age and patination to it.
The "Czechoslovakia" shoulder title has been tacked to the base and is gauranteed as 100% Original.
