Master modeller Philip Warren has spent the last 65 years building an incredible fleet of 463 ships - made from more than a million matchsticks.<br />
<br />
Mr Warren, 82, has dedicated more than three quarters of his life crafting the matchstick armada and has built every class of ship in the Royal Navy since 1945.<br />
<br />
Each ship in his huge collection is incredibly detailed and he has even built miniature model aircrafts to go with his huge carrier ships.<br />
<br />
The vessels are all painstakingly hand made using just a ruler, razor blade and glue, and can take up to a year to complete.
