Old Ship Models...

Another Polaroid scan of 35 years ago! This is a Lindberg model of the German Battleship Tirpitz shortly after I completed it. My friend Danny and I used to sail our models in ditches after rains!

This ship has survived many, many years on Danny's grave. I check on it and him every time I go to El Dorado Springs and pass the small cemetery where they rest. It is battered and worn but so far no one has taken it or thrown it away.

Neat ship, and a wonderful memorial to your old friend.

My friends and I used to do the same thing, sail our ships in ditches. Sadly none of ours survived.

I wouldn't have known this was a model. Its nice that the ship has survived so long on your friends grave.
