Step-by-step, this ship modeler's manual explains how to build a 1/16th scale model of the American privateer schooner Prince de Neufchatel. One of a new class of large, fast, and seaworthy schooners that first made their appearance in the War of 1812, the ship had a short but notoriously successful career that earned a permanent place in U.S. history. Written by the world-renowned ship modeler Philip Reed, the book explains how to build two versions of the schooner: a waterline model and a full-hull display model. The author's selection of a relatively simple vessel will encourage even the less-experienced modeler to take on the challenge of a scratch-built hull. Beautifully illustrated throughout with hundreds of color photographs, the guide passes along a wealth of information that Reed has learned over the years to enable modelers of all skill levels to tackle all aspects of building a small fore-and-aft rigged vessel. Like his first book on sailing Men-of-War, this manual is certain to become a classic for ship modelers everywhere.
