Building plank-on-frame ship models

£14.99

Product description

Intended as a basic, practical manual for building all plank-on-frame models, this book takes as its example the Royal Navy's two-masted sloop, "Cruiser" of 1752. It leads the reader through every stage of building a model from preliminary research, through taking off lines, to the construction of the model and eventual display. Photographs of the author's model, taken during its building and explanatory line drawings are used extensively to describe each stage of the process. 2002 reprint. Used hardback in very good condition. Dustjacket very good with minor shelf wear. Water stain to front and rear lower corners of the fore edges, extending through to the covers of the book, as a result of which the blue die from the covers has been leached to the inside of the dust jacket. Larger stain (3ins by 3ins) on rear of jacket. Covers of the book affected by this water staining. The book is otherwise clean internally with sound binding.
