Sailing ship models

Today I went to see the exhibition of the models of sailing ships. This is the annual exhibition of The Yokohama Sailing-ship Modelers Club, its members are amateur but skillful modelers.

I have known about this exhibition for years but this was the first time to see it, and I enjoyed it very much! The models were wonderful, especially their details were beautiful. And the modelers were also enjoying very much to tell us about their works, about the history of sailing ships etc. I was with my friend who had once enjoyed making models and loved sea-going stories, so our conversation was lively and very educational!

(Some models were showing ship's construction)

(This is a fishing boat. Look at the tiny fish and fishermen!)

(Oh... I love these details very much!!)
