Sails On A Ship

Miniature, but majestic; Model ship show sails into Peabody this weekend - Eagle-Tribune

In comparison to the tall ships that visited Boston this past summer, with towering masts and hulls extending more than 100 feet, these tiny models have parts that can measure. And many members are literally veterans — men who nurtured their love for ships and models and maritime history while serving in the military. There are both newcomers and veteran model builders, including several members of the USS Constitution Model Shipwright Guild, in this group. This weekend's New England Model Ship Show "is arguably the biggest show in New England for model ships,” said Marcellino Consalvo, a Peabody resident who has led the group since 2003. “Everyone likes miniature things,” he said.
