Building Ship Models : Patterns and Instructions for a Clipper Ship and a Whaler
by George B. Douglas, Joseph T. Higgins
Book Description
Clearly written text, detailed illustrations, and full-size working plans provide novices and experienced model builders with all the information they need to create exact replicas of two 19th-century sailing ships—the Benjamin F. Packard, a classic American clipper, and the Alice Mandell, a famous whaler. The one-volume edition of two rare model-building manuals also devotes chapters to ship’s rigging (ancient and modern) and abundant information on clippers and old-time whaling ships. A treasury of essential information for hobbyists, model builders, and devotees of the great age of sail.

Workshop Practice for Ship Modelers: A Complete Practical Guide for the Occasional Engineer
by Brian King
Book Description
Broad in scope yet meticulous in coverage, this manual on workshops and workshop practices fills a long-neglected area for modelers seeking to improve their building skills. The author draws on many years spent developing and honing his techniques, knowledge that he passes on to the reader in this four-part book. He first discusses the design of the workshop and the types of tools and storage needed. The second section deals with materials, including an analysis of the properties and usage of metals, woods, plastics, and adhesives. Section three looks at machining methods, from lathe work to milling and photo etching. The fourth section, on model finishing, provides details on painting and the types of equipment required. This practical guide can be used both as an encyclopedia of tools and materials and an authoritative reference to help the reader decide what method to use to complete a specific task.
