Super-detailing the Cutter Sherbourne Super-detailing the Cutter Sherbourne
Ref: K9704
Super-detailing the Cutter Sherbourne. A guide to building the Caldercraft kit by George Bandurek

The book presents a step by step guide or 'practicum' to building an impressive model of the revenue cutter 'Sherbourne'. At the heart of the model is a beginners' kit from Caldercraft / Jotika which gives a sound basic hull but simplifies many of the fittings and omits others. The detailed instructions in the book describe how to make masts and sails, belay all the rigging and add fine details such as a compass, crew and racks for cannon balls. The modelling techniques range from traditional woodcraft to laminated paper to computer printed fabric. All can be undertaken on a kitchen table and do not require expensive tools or materials.

The book is copiously illustrated with over 300 colour photographs and shows how to refine and embellish the kit to create a faithful reproduction of the original. The author's model won a silver medal and the 'Model Boats' kit cup at the Model Engineer Exhibition in London, 2010.

Planking Techniques for Model Ship Builders Planking Techniques for Model Ship Builders
Ref: K8681
Planking Technioues for Model Ship Builders by Donald Dressel

Planking is one of the most important, and least often addressed, aspects of shipmodeling - until now! Here is a complete explanation of several different types of planking procedures. Of particular interest are details on:

Selection of wood—including boxwood, pearwood, ebony, holly, cherry, and walnut. Special “jigs” to assist in construction— including wood forms and clamps. The many available types of tools and glues, and how best to use them. The form used to help bend the plank around the bow area of the hull. Tips on the “batten” as a guide in the planking process. The use of clinker-built planking as an alternative process. The simple use of “push pins” when attaching the planks to the bulkhead. Planking of the “false deck” when building a kit model. Don Dressel is a Senior Telecommunications Engineer who has been building ship models for approximately 20 years. A member and former president of the Fullerton Ship Modelers Association, he has won numerous awards for his shipmodeling efforts.
