Phillip Reed's latest building guide tackles what many regard as the ultimate expression of the ship model maker s art, the Navy Board model. His step-by-step construction of a miniature 1/192 scale model of the Royal George of 1715 demonstrates all the conventions of Navy Board framing and planking. With the aid of nearly 400 photographs, he takes the reader through every building stage. Methods of hull and deck framing, internal and external planking, and the construction of the complex stern are all covered. Reed also shows how to render the multitude of decorative carvings on the figurehead, stern, and broadside. This is the first book in many years to cover the well-known and sought-after early eighteenth-century Navy Board models.
