Bottled Ship Builder

Great model building reference

Recommended Posts


After reading the 3 issues of The Bottled Shipwright I am in awe of the history, and experience enjoyed by this group. That being said, please forgive my newcomers excitement if things I post are already common knowledge. I came across this book , cheap, on ebay and wow do I really, really like it as a reference for historic ships of sail. It details, quite accurately I believe, all the specific areas of  historic ship model building, and explains the difference in eras, of those specific areas. I'll throw up a couple of pictures for example but as a newbie, I will be referencing this book a great deal in the future.

Donald; I picked up a used copy and it's an excellent reference book. Thanx for posting...Moab

No worries, I find it a really useful reference, I am learning a ton of "salty vocabulary" without the cursing as well.
