Ship Models from Kits Basic & Advanced Techniques Ship Models from Kits Basic & Advanced Techniques
Ref: K0918
Ship Models from Kits Basic & Advanced Techniques for Small Scales by David Griffith: In the past thirty years the world of model kits has undergone a veritable revolution. New techniques in injection moulding have improved the scale accuracy and surface detail of the humble plastic kit, while many specialist companies now produce top-quality resin models, vastly broadening the range of subjects on the market. However, the really radical change has been the advent of photo-etched brass fret, which allows the finest detail to be reproduced to scale. In ship modelling, this has resulted in a new form of the hobby, mid-way between traditional build-from-the-box simplicity and the time-consuming demands of fabricating everything from scratch.

These new materials have prompted innovative techniques, which are comprehensively demonstrated in this new manual. Designed for those wishing to achieve the best results from their ship kits in the 1:700 to 1:350 range of scales, it uses step by step photographs to take the reader through the building of two models, one in plastic and one in resin, from basic construction, fittings and detailing, to painting, finishing and display.

Written by a highly experienced, award-winning ship modeller, the book is a showcase for the contemporary approach to the hobby.

Rigging Period Ship Models by Lennarth Petersson Rigging Period Ship Models by Lennarth Petersson
Ref: K021
Rigging Period Ship Models by Lennarth Petersson: The rigging of period ship models is the most complex task which any modeller has to take on, for an eighteenth-century man-of-war boasted mile on mile of rigging, more than 1,000 blocks, and acres of canvas. To reduce this in scale, and yet retain an accurate representation, is an awesome undertaking.
This now classic work untangles the complex web, and, using some 400 drawings, the author shows clearly how each separate item of rigging is fitted to the masts, yards and sails. Each drawing deals with only one particular item so that it can be seen clearly in isolation. The lead of a particular halliard, the arrangement of a bracing line, these and every other detail is depicted with startling clarity. Based on the author’s research of numerous eighteenth-century models, each one with its contemporary rigging still extant, the information is both meticulous and accurate.
The remarkable visual immediacy and clarity of this work makes it truly unique and no modeller of period ships can afford to be without it at his side. In addition, the book is a ‘must-have’ practical reference work for all those involved in the rigging and repair of historic ships.

RMS Titanic. A Modelmaker's Manual RMS Titanic. A Modelmaker's Manual
Ref: K0840
RMS Titanic. A Modelmaker's Manual by Peter Davies-Garner: RMS Titanic has had more written about her than any other ship but, surprisingly, there is little information directed at the modelmaker. This superb book contains all the information needed to build a highly accurate model, down to the tiniest details of the hull s rivets. The work is based on the author s remarkable 18ft model, built to 1/48 scale, and specially commissioned for a travelling exhibition in North America. The book contains a mass of practical information on how to construct every part of the great liner and is equally applicable to a small static bread-and-butter display model as to a large working version.Profusely illustrated with close-up photographs, detailed drawings and a large collection of photographs of the prototype herself, the book also contains a complete set of plans considered to be the most accurate yet drawn.With this mix of practical information, rare photographs and highly detailed drawings the book can appeal to all Titanic enthusiasts as well as to ship modellers of every sort.

Waterline Warships An Illustrated Masterclass Waterline Warships An Illustrated Masterclass
Ref: K0765
Waterline Warships An Illustrated Masterclass by Philip Reed: Philip Reed, best known for his superb models of ships from the age of sail, here turns his attention to the other highly popular subject for ship modellers - the warships of the Second World War. The book is a step-by-step manual for building a scratch waterline model of the Ca Class destroyer HMS Caesar, the sistership of Cavalier now on display in drydock at Chatham Historical Dockyard. These emergency built ships were launched between 1943 and 1945 and Caesar herself was to see action in 1944 on the Russian convoys and then in defence of the Western Approaches. The model presented in the book is built to the scale of 16ft to the inch and is designed to be displayed as a waterline model in a diorama. Every aspect is covered from the construction of a bread and butter hull through to the the details of camouflage, bridge, funnel, mast, the 4.5in, Hazemeyer and Oerlikon guns, boats, davits, depth charge gear, torpedo tubes, searchlights, vents and lockers,and the sea itself. Ship s plans and a picture gallery at the end of the book devoted to a whole array of the author s WWII model warships complete the book. More than fifty years of modelling experience is passed on through wise and practical advice and thus each page will be of the utmost value to scratch builders and to any kit builders who may be setting out to construct a model of a WWII warship.

Thunderer. Building a Model Dreadnought by William Mowl Thunderer. Building a Model Dreadnought by William Mowl
Ref: K0598
Thunderer. Building a Model Dreadnought by William Mowll

HMS Thunderer was the third Orion class battleship, one of the Super Dreadnoughts built to counter German naval expansion, and was laid down one hundred years ago in April 1910. At 22,200 tons she was the largest ship ever built on the Thames but she was to be responsible for the bankruptcy of her builders, the Thames Iron Works.
The author’s 1/96 scale museum-quality model of this ship reflects the massive engineering of the prototype and brings to life the power and potency of the Super Dreadnoughts. Every aspect of the building is covered, from the hull to wireless equipment, and all the different techniques required to bring a complex model battleship to completion are clearly explained, including casting in metal and GRP, silver brazing, soft soldering, metal fabrication in steel, brass, copper, aluminium and pewter, and lathe turning and milling operations for the production of guns and propellers.
The author also covers the contemporary American battleship, USS Texas, the only remaining ship of that type and era, and an inspiration for any modeller setting out to tackle this subject.
Not just a superb ‘how to’ manual, the book is also an eloquent testimony to the skills of the designers

Building a Miniature Navy Board Model by Phillip Reed Building a Miniature Navy Board Model by Phillip Reed
Ref: K0178
Building a Miniature Navy Board Model by Phillip Reed: This latest step-by-step volume from Phil Reed tackles what, for many, are regarded as the ultimate expression of the ship model maker's art, the Navy Board model. These beautiful early eighteenth-century works of art are well represented in the major maritime museums both here and in the States as well as in private collections and here the author deals with the construction of a miniature 1/192 scale model of the Royal George of 1715, in which all the conventions of Navy Board framing and planking are demonstrated .

He takes us through every stage of the work with the aid of nearly 400 photographs, each one accompanied by detailed text. Methods of hull and deck framing, internal and external planking, the construction of the complex stern with its array of galleries doors and windows, are all covered; the rendering of the multitude of decorative carvings on the figurehead, stern and broadside is also demonstrated.

At the end of the book there is a short section showing his model of Syren, which demonstrates how the techniques used to frame Royal George could be adapted for ships of a later date, using single and double frames closer to full-size practice.
