More Miniature Merchant Ships by John Bowen
Book DescriptionJohn Bowen brings his knowledge and expertise of waterline ship modelling to a second volume of 'Miniature Merchant Ships', including examples such as Haverford (1901), Carpathia (1903), Oronsay (1925) and Braemar Castle (1952). The book opens with a section giving advice on initial preparations -- finding and using plans, suitable materials and tools. This section also presents an alphabetical list of the principal fittings on a ship (those that would be included on this type of model) -- hatches, winches, capstans, anchors, etc -- with details and diagrams on how to make them. Section II comprises 30 sets of plans of ships built between 1900 and 1969. These are accompanied with at least one photograph of the ship, a full specification, brief history, and notes on essential constructional details, including colour scheme. Readers will recognise the authoritative yet approachable style John has brought to several ship modelling titles, which will appeal to both beginners and more experienced modellers.
