Description - Period Ship Modelmaking by Phillip Reed

This new shipmodeller's manual explains in graphic manner how to build a small 1/16th scale model of the American privateer schooner Prince de Neufchatel. She was one of a new class of large, fast and seaworthy schooners that first made their appearance during the war of 1812. She had a short but notoriously successful career that earned her a permanent place in her nation's history. World-renowned ship modeller Phil Reed describes in this new book how to build two versions of this ship: a waterline model and a full-hull display model. Building on the success of his first book, Modelling Sailing Men-of-War, which described the complex building process of the 74-gun ship, he has here taken a simpler vessel, to encourage the less experienced shipwright to embark upon a scratch-built hull. Taking this schooner as a prototype, the author passes on a wealth of experience which will enable modellers of all skill levels to confidently tackle every aspect of building any small fore-and-aft rigged vessel.
