September 7, 2012 0 Comments

“Which of the ships excites you the most? Which ship could carry you across the
boundaries of the known world and take you to foreign lands? What adventures might
you have in those longitudes and latitudes? You can look at boats,” Pecheur went
on, “but understanding what makes you desire one thing or another is more elusive.” –
from A Floating Life by Tad Crawford (Chapter 4)

This model is of one of the enormous junks that sailed in the treasure fleets of Cheng
Ho, admiral of the western seas. For more about building model boats, visit http://
