SCALED-DOWN ships are set to go on display in Portsmouth.

Dozens of model ships will be part of a free Modeltastic display at the Historic Dockyards from 1pm to 4pm today.

The models will be part of the HMS Hear My Story exhibition which opens next year.

The display will include an 11ft model of HMS Eagle which took an enthusiast 15 years to make.

Visitors will also be able to make their own model ships out of Lego bricks and try on navy uniforms.
