Retired navy solider makes warship models out of waste


(ECNS) -- Gao Mantang, a 68-year-old man from Qinhuangdao City, north China's Hebei Province, made more than 20 warship models out of waste materials by hand after retirement.

It takes him at least half a year to make a warship model. Each model is composed of hundreds of parts. The smallest part is only 5 millimeter in diameter, but the details, including sails, iron anchors, ropes, masts, are all exquisite and vivid. Gao used to be a navy soldier and retired in 2014. He wants to do something to remember the old times.
