The Man with the German Supermodel
This scale model of World War II German battleship Admiral Graf Spee is 9m (30ft) long and weighs 320kg (700lb).
It took creator William Terra six years to build and cost £5,000 ($10,000). Made from wood strips and fiberglass, the Spee can reach speeds of 15mph (24km/h), thanks to its 11.2Kw engine.
It also plays music by German composer Richard Wagner through an in-built stereo, said former fire officer Mr Terra, 65, from Maine, US.
This model is also capable of carrying 2 passengers onboard, at special open top compartments.
