model ships

Mom and I spent some time at the US Naval Academy Museum.
We were there and heard the ship's models were pretty cool, and they are.

They have quite a collection.

There is a whole collection of model ships made by French sailors who were prisoners of war of Great Britain. I'm not sure which war, but it was during the late 1700s. They used bones from their food make the models, like these two here above and below.

Dad, we saw this ship, the HMS Victory, while in Portsmouth, England.
It was cool to see this model, and yes it was made by French sailors too.
