    model ship - model is an adjective or a noun?

    For the word, "model ship" is the "model" an adjective or a noun?

    I would think it is an adjective because it tells us what type of ship.
    Am I correct?

    1) "model ship" is not a word. It is two words, and you can call it a 'phrase'.
    I would think it is an adjective because it tells us what type of ship. I agree with you.
