Description: Building 'plank-on-frame' is the pre-eminent ship modelling technique which nearly all model shipwrights aspire to. This practical manual is intended as the foremost guide to all its intricacies.
Taking as his example the two-masted sloop of 1752, the Cruiser, the author leads the reader though every stage of building a model of the vessel, from preliminary research and taking off lines to the actual construction of the hull and fittings, and its masting and rigging. Each clear, step-by-step stage is described in the text and illustrated with explanatory line drawings and photographs.
Though a single ship is employed as an example, the techniques can equally well be applied to any wooden sailing ship, and for this reason the book is an essential tool for model makers - beginners and the experienced alike.
