Plank-On-Frame Models And Scale Masting & Rigging Volume 1

£29.99

Product description

Harold A. Underhill's books on sailing ship history and construction are well known, as is the wide range of plans. The present book is founded on his experience of some fifty years of spare-time model building, and takes the reader right through its subject from the reading and interpretation of plans to mounting the finished model on its base. The art of constructing plank-on-frame ship models is usually considered to be beyond all but the most skilled model-makers but in this book the author shows that this is a fallacy. He provides the beginner with a step-by-step guide to building accurate scale models of sailing ships, etc., including the use of the alternative simplified methods. This volume concentrates on the hulls of sailing models, power craft, and clinker-built boats.

It is bound with blue cloth over boards, gilt lettering on the spine and blind stamped lettering on the front boards. Profusely illustrated with both black and white photographic plates and measured drawings, both full page and smaller insets. The book shows minor wear to the externals, previous onwer's name on both front free end papers and the front end papers of volume II are tanned. Otherwise they are clean with tight bindings. The unclipped dust jacket is worn and grubby and the edges and corners are torn and worn. There is a larger tear on the bottom corner of the front cover.
