"Modellers looking for guidance in basic construction techniques usually have no trouble finding what they need to know in print, but detailed material on such aspects as hull forms, shipboard structure and ships’ fittings are another matter. A Ship Modelmaker's Manual fills this gap. Alphabetically presented in this fully illustrated catalog, in-depth information covers anchors,bollards and fairleads, davits, derricks, funnels, hatches, lifeboats, mas ts, propellers and winches. Extended entries highlight common modelmaking problems including methods of propulsion, plans for ship models, hull construction and choice of timber." - from rear of dustjacket.
