“Ship-Shape: Nautical Scale Models”

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 04-02-2012 08-07-2012 15 “Ship-Shape: Nautical Scale Models” This exhibit, which examines the detailed process of building model ships, consists of dozens of artifacts, including model ships, vintage toy ships, a variety of antique model kit boxes, a mock-up of a modeler's workbench showing the building of a model ship, and illustrations that demonstrate how models are constructed. Among the highlights of the exhibit are large-scale models of the Battleship New Jersey, which served during WWII, the Korean War, and Vietnam and the USS Constitution, the oldest commissioned vessel afloat in the world. A modeler's workbench offers a peek at the tools of the trade, while World War II nautical toys illustrate children's fascination with ships. From wartime cardboard models to ships in bottles, the exhibit highlights the dexterity, ingenuity, and artistry embodied in these popular collectors' items. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=102294 Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum true DD/MM/YYYY
