Britain's National Maritime Museum in Greenwich houses the largest collection of scale ship models in the world, many of which are centuries-old artifacts created by craftsmen of the Royal Navy or the shipbuilders. Here curator and former naval airman David Hobbs offers large color photos and closeups of more than a hundred models of ships that fought in World War I. From coastal motor boats to the mighty HMS Dreadnought, these vessels were among the last warships to be made substantially from materials like wood and brass as well as steel, and their remarkable miniature versions capture that hand built quality. Hobbs provides detailed captions and notes interesting or unusual features of the models and the ships themselves.
