During the Great War of 1914-18 an art form flourished known as 'trench art'. Hand crafted creations from artistic soldiers were constructed using whatever material was at hand; bullet shells, wood, fabric, aircraft aluminium, etc. Popular creatons were airplane models, lighters and differently sized clocks. Authentic Models' flight memorabilia is a perfect replica of trench art, from a time when flight was still a hands-on affair and perfect artistic materials were difficult to come by.
