Description: Norman Ough is considered by many as the greatest ship modeler of the twentieth century and his exquisite drawings and meticulous models have come to be regarded as masterpieces of draftsmanship, workmanship and realism; more than technically accomplished ship models, they are truly works of art.
This new book is both a tribute to his lonely genius and a practical treatise for model shipwrights. Ough lived most of his adult life far from the sea in an apartment in London, where his frugal existence and total absorption in his work led to hospitalization on at least two occasions. He was an eccentric in the truest sense but he also became one of the most sought-after masters of his craft. Earl Mountbatten had him model the ships he had served on and film production companies commissioned models for effects in several films.
Incorporating many of his original articles from Model Maker Magazine, his detailed line drawings of ships now held by the Brunel Institute, and photographs of his models displayed in museums and at Mountbatten's home in Hampshire, this book presents an extraordinary level of practical information as well as an inspiring panorama of perhaps the most perfect warship models ever made.

"The book is logically laid out with an introduction, a chapter on Ough's life and then ten chapters on such subjects as 'Ordnance', 'Capital Ships' and so on, followed by one on the drawings and plans themselves with a list of those held by the Brunel Institute at the SS Great Britain". --Warshipsas part of the publication's Naval Books of the Year
