The Ship Model Builders Handbook
Fittings and Superstructures for the Small Ship
By (author) Tom Gorman
Ship Model Builders Handbook by Tom Gorman
Book DescriptionAn illustrated A-Z directory of the visible fixtures, superstructure fittings and machinery of small merchant ships, tugs and fishing vessels such as you would find in coastal and off-shore waters - each no bigger than 76 metres long. The key to the book is the incredible amount of fine detail shown in the photographs and line drawings - details essential for scale modelling which makes this a resource which will be very much sought after by enthusiasts who do not get the opportunity to compile their own detail archives firsthand. From anchors to winches and windlasses, each feature is illustrated in two or three photographs, with a supporting text providing technical detail. The book is fully illustrated with 250 detailed photographs and line drawings of the details of ships involved in cargo, fishing, pilotage and oil rig support.
