Since 1888, crossing Hong Kong’s spectacular Victoria Harbour has been a cheap and wonderful journey, thanks to the delightful Star Ferries. Some of the current ships have been in operation since the 1950s, although since retro-fitted with modern power, and whatever turmoil an increasingly despotic Chinese government inflicts upon the once autonomous region, the Star Ferries have remained a much needed constant.
This beautiful replica of the ‘Solar Star’ – that first sailed in 1958 and is still in use today – comes from Yama Jason, who has captured the iconic Star Ferry shape superbly in brick form. Lovely detailing and some very clever techniques make this worth a closer look, and there’s more of the model to see on Flickr.
