Overview

This classic guide to ship modeling is distinguished by its particular suitability for beginners. Both text and plans are especially geared toward the growing skills of novices, with projects presented in easy-to-learn techniques and arranged in order of difficulty, starting with relatively simple models and culminating in more complicated square-riggers.
The plans are drawn from those of the original builders or from measurements of existing craft, showing all the necessary details for creating highly accurate scale models. Starting with the construction of a half-hull ship model, the book advances to the building of a whole-hull model and replicas of twelve different American sailing vessels, with separate chapters on rigging, gear and furniture, and tools and materials.
Written by an expert model maker, this guide is newly returned to print after many years. Beginners to the craft will find it an essential companion, and even experienced model makers will find it a helpful and informative resource.
