Object 47: Historic British and American Ship Models

Over the coming decade, the US Navy's new Littoral Combat Ships will be fully operational, and as we examine their designs and technological innovation, today's episode takes us back in time to visit the newest ships of the 1750s and 1890s, some of them littoral in nature.  We also head into the restoration and modeling shop of the Naval Academy museum for an up-close look at the efforts to preserve and expand the Naval Academy's precious collection of model ships, and thus document our naval heritage.
