The New Period Ship Handbook by Keith Julier

The New Period Ship Handbook


The New Period Ship Handbook by Keith Julier

In this revised edition of the Period Ship Handbook, the best of the original has been retained: a well-illustrated guide to the construction of static model sailing ships and the offer to the beginner of all the information needed to get started in this fascinating hobby. It also continues to introduce the more experienced model-maker to alternative techniques, well tried over many years of model shipbuilding. Significant additions have been made to the original text as a result of a further twelve years of model-making experience and developments within the kit producing trade and the availability of new subjects. Following chapters on kit selection, tools and material, the emphasis of the book moves to the practical application of the model-making procedures involved in producing high quality models. The new models selected to demonstrate these techniques range form the relatively simple to the very complex but all are constructed from kits currently available, without the facility of a sophisticated workshop. Whether you are a beginner or an old hand, whether you fancy the graceful lines of a 'J' Class yacht or the intricate detail and historical accuracy of HMS Victory, there is something here for you.
