Model Ships Fittings by James Pottinger Model Ships Fittings by James Pottinger
Ref: K1896
Model Ships Fittings by James Pottinger: Having drawn up about 160 and ship and boat model plans for well over thirty years for a number of well known and authoritive model magazines the author says 'it has been especially gratifying to see many of these built to my plans by model makers around the world as evidenced by my postbag containing both photos and queries. The standard of workmanship displayed by many modelmakers belies the fact that an intimate knowledge of ships is absolutely necessary, although considerable research may have been done in the execution of the model aided by comprehensive plans. It is even more commendable when some of these builders are very much landlocked, and often have scant, or no knowledge, of naval architecture or common marine practice'

This is not intended to be a treatise describing all parts of a ship, or instructions how to build a model, many experienced model makers can be relied on to provide such information, but, with the help of some sketches and photographs, concentrates on these items which will be prominent on any model, the accurate representation of which can often make or mar the final result.

Painting Model Boats by Rick Eyrich: Painting Model Boats by Rick Eyrich:
Ref: K465
Painting Model Boats by Rick Eyrich: In this book, Rick Eyrich details the ins and outs of painting both static and remote-controlled model boats including those steps necessary to prepare these marinecraft for their paintwork Often overlooked, the actual preparation of a small-scale model hull for painting can greatly determine how well the finished project will appear; and the Painting Model Boats book will clearly overview this process.

Surface shaping, filling, primering and waterproofing are all covered in this publication after which there will be chapters dedicated on how best to transfer whatever paint/finish the hobbyist has chosen for his/her modelcraft. Yet along with discussing the basics of painting most any type of model vessel, this book will also spell out some of the ways to protect your handiwork once it’s been affixed to the watercrafts exterior. Clear coats, graphics applications and repairs will all be talked about at length; plus, each of these subjects will be broken down into their static or R/C boat usages as well.

Painting Model Boats is intended to help anyone, both novice and expert alike, to decorate his/her model vessel to whatever level of finish they might desire in their boats. Because, in the final analysis, the overall appearance of any small-scale marinecraft will largely be judged by its outer paintwork!

Making Model Boats with Styrene by Richard Webb Making Model Boats with Styrene by Richard Webb
Ref: K464
Making Model Boats with Styrene by Richard Webb: Richard Webb has enjoyed making and sailing radio controlled model boats for over 25 years. The models he has designed and built have, increased in size and complexly and using his wide experience he has achieved several national awards. When his grandchildren asked for a boat of their own he then went on to design some simple models using flat styrene sheet.

The idea of forming a boat hull from flat sheet was adapted from building a full sized plywood MIRROR sailing dinghy. In this book Richard explores the challenge of using flat styrene sheet to develop more intricate models and using his own techniques that have been developed over the years, as well as those by other modellers, he has developed a number of designs.

Sections include cutting, bending, gluing and painting styrene materials, Making fittings, radio installation, kit construction and Vac forming.

Scale Model Steamboats by Phillip Vaughn Williams Scale Model Steamboats by Phillip Vaughn Williams
Ref: K308
Scale Model Steamboats by Phillip Vaughn Williams: Over the last ten years there has been enormous growth in the number of boat modellers wishing to use steam plant as a propulsion system for their scale and semi-scale models. This has been the result of the commercial availability of kits and factory built steam engines and boilers, allowing modellers with limited facilities and engineering background to install simple to operate units into a variety of model prototypes. For such modellers a book explaining the basic requirements has been long overdue.

This book first outlines the development of marine steam power and the principles, design and characteristics of prototype steam plants. After a section on model steam plants, their selection and matching to particular models and their installation and running, the author considers the requirements for safe running as far as the hull and superstructure are involved. He runs through the build of a typical open launch model, ideal for access to the plant and then considers other types of ships such as merchantmen, tugs, fishing boats, pleasure steamers and so on. Experienced steam buffs will find much to stimulate them to a new and perhaps more challenging model, and newcomers will be able to absorb the basic facts so they can proceed with confidence and in complete safety, to build and operate these fascinating model steam engines and boats.
