Case ID?

Postby DuncaninFrance » Thu Dec 14, 2017 12:13 pm

While photographing various items of my Mothers before offering them for sale I came across this piece of WWI art.
It would appear to be made from rifle cases and the wheels look like rimless case ends. Can anyone ID the maker, obviously not .303 British!
Base is stamped F A 32

I'd say Frankfort Arsenal in 30.06. Looks like an early date.

Or this with the same date.

Ummmm.
I don't know where or who made the plane but it could have been my Grandfather. He served in WWI in Gallipoli and in France and was Mentioned in Dispatches. He was a very handy type and owned a revolver so could have made it after the war I suppose.
