Matchstick Fleet

This is so incredibly beyond belief!!!   What a treasure……..
Phil Warren, from the UK , spent 62 years to build this incredible fleet of 432 ships. All vessels are built entirely of matchsticks and boxes of wooden matches. The collection includes nearly 370 American and 60 British ships.
Although now 84 years of age, Mr. Warren began creating his first boat in 1948, when he was only 17. He uses a razor blade, tweezers and sandpaper to carve the pieces and boxes, then sticks them together with balsa wood glue.
In total, more than 650,000 matchsticks were used to create an amazing collection of 1:300 scale models.  His 1,200 aircraft make an even more realistic appearance to dress the decks of aircraft carriers.
