RARE!! Large USAAF/RAF BRONZE 'Trench Art' Model
With a wingspan of just over 28cms, and being extremely heavy this is one imposing WWII Model.
I believe it is made in Bronze but as it seems never to have been cleaned or polished it could be heavily patinated brass.
As can be seen, this is a 100% Original period piece, with the stand made from turned Bakelite, Cockpit Lucite and Aircraft Aluminium. The base carries number stamps so I would think it is also part of an Aircraft.
