Phil Warren’s Amazing Matchstick Fleet.

Phil Warren is a modeller who uses matchsticks.
Phil Warren


He’s almost 80 years old now. Yet he has pursued an odd artistic proclivity. He builds 1:13000 model ships entirely out of matchsticks and wooden boxes. In fact, he has assembled a fleet of 432 ships and 12000 aircraft. This Octogenarian Brit uses a razor blade, glue, matchsticks, tweezers and sandpaper. That’s it.


That said, he has reprised each warship in the United Kingdom fleet since World War II and he even added the support vessels.
