About this title
A further venture into the world of static model sailing ships, offering guidance to the beginner and discussion on model making techniques for the more experienced. Suggestions on expanding the tool kit from the basic essentials towards more sophisticated equipment are followed by an overall view of commercially available kits and their selection. The main body of the book is devoted to the building of ten models, all available in kit form. Each vessel selected has something different to offer the model maker, whether it be the ornamentation of the Royal Caroline or the miniature authentic carpentry of the clinker built Holly. Information is provided on the English "Rate" system and the book concludes with a summary of more modelling techniques.From Library Journal:
In addition to details on constructing 21 kits?always a complex undertaking where ships are concerned?these books have a wide variety of useful general information.
