Description: Modelling Naval Ships in Small Scales provides a wealth of practical guidance on building and painting realistic model naval ships aimed at those who are new to this hobby through to the experienced modeller.
An in-depth look at the creation of four models is included
The Type 45 destroyer HMS Daring (Dragon)
The pre-war aircraft carrier USS Wasp (Aoshima)
The River-class frigate HMS Nadder (Starling Models) and
The 'pocket battleship' Admiral Graf Spee (Academy).
With a focus on the popular kit scales of 1/700 and 1/350 in the waterline style, this book demonstrates the techniques used in building model ships, from the basic to the more complex, larger-scale models requiring many differing skills. There are chapters on the fundamentals such as building resin kits, painting and weathering, rigging and creating a water effect. It provides guidance on more advanced techniques such as the use of photo-etched parts and creating rough-water effects. Finally, it is packed with helpful tips and finishing touches, such as making flags and how to take professional-standard photographs of your completed model.
