Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A particular suitability for beginners distinguishes this classic guide to ship modeling from the many other available manuals. Both text and plans are especially geared toward the growing skills of novices, with projects presented in easy-to-learn techniques arranged in order of difficulty, from relatively simple models to 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 12 different American sailing vessels, including a whaling schooner, Chesapeake Bay bugeye, sloop of war, privateer, and International "M" class yacht. Also included are chapters on rigging, gear and furniture, and tools and materials. The return of this long out-of-print guide, written by an expert on the subject, is certain to be applauded by armchair sailors and model-ship enthusiasts. Unabridged republication of the edition published by W. W. Norton & Company, Inc., New York, 1942. Appendixes. Glossary. Index.
