Generously illustrated and fully detailed, this new manual from expert modeler Keith Julier provides a practical guide for craftsmen who want to build their historic models from a kit. From the initial planning and kit selection through the various stages of construction, Julier takes the myth and mystery out of what many consider to be a complex subject, using easy-to-follow explanations, simple terminology, and more than one-hundred photographs to help modelers complete their projects. Some of the many topics covered include: adhesives, finishes, and fixings; tools, maintenance and safety; history and accuracy; hull planking; wales and rails; stern and quarter galleries; sails; yards and spars; standard running and rigging; kit manufacturers and available products; and much more. Pointing out the pitfalls of modeling and how to avoid them, Julier's latest guide will be of particular interest to beginning and intermediate modelers, but more experienced hands will also find much of value.
