Compared to conventional present requests for chocolates, mountain bikes, red envelops stuffed with money, or even miniature Lamborghinis, this one seems the hardest to fulfill: last Spring Holiday, a boy in Qingdao, Shandong province asked his grandfather for a model Liaoning Aircraft Carrier.

Eighty-year-old Wen Yuzhu however, was nonplussed. He spent a month building a miniature aircraft carrier that is 1/25th the size of the real Liaoning, China’s first aircraft carrier. Wen’s model can’t fight in a real battle of course, but it’s by far bigger than anything in the toy store.

Wen told reporters that the model, currently parked on a Qingdao beach, will be finished by the next rising tide.
