Ships by Ernest Jonas Amitin
Just a few of the many ship models built by my dad. He made many more
which he gave as gifts to friends and family over the years.
He also made a very few on request that he sold.
These were all done with wood scraps and odds and ends that he collected.
Only the canvas for the sales and the string for the rigging were purchased.
These were not done to scale but copied from pictures found in books and some old photo's.
All the many hours each took to make were done with his great love of the sea and romance
of the old sailing ships of the past. In his later years this also included small vessels of all kinds.
