    They appear to be US WW I wings.
    The metal ones have been faked for years.
    You might go over to the US Military Forum for some expert opinions.

    They are Meant to be WWI era, but, unfortunately, I believe that all 3 pieces are fairly modern fakes. They have been making these types in quantity for some good many years now. The Balloon Pilot, for example, would be Considerable money, as they are as rare as frog's teeth. Joe Walters from House of Swords and Militaria used to sell whole pages of these things just about every catalog that he'd put out. Fooled alot of collectors until people finally caught on.
