Historic Model Ships from Scratch by Scott Robertson
Book DescriptionBuilding model ships from scratch is a fascinating and inexpensive hobby. One of the oldest crafts, it was performed with the barest of tools and materials by mariners on the high seas - and also by prisoners of war in Napoleonic times. This is a sequel to the author's first book Model Ships From Scratch. Here you are given a wide variety of interesting facts and instructions including the old pastime of putting a model ship into a bottle. The different ways of making the hulls of model ships and boats, together with rigging, are explained. Throughout the book model plan references are noted for the different types of ships covered. Packed with detailed drawings and photographs of many model ships made by the author, plus close-ups of deck details and fittings, this book is a comprehensive guide to the craft for both beginners and amateur modelmakers.
