Full Description:

A comprehensive guide to the building and sailing of working scale model merchant ships, this new paperback edition covers the spectrum of ship types--from tankers to trawlers to paddle-steamers. Every stage of construction is covered in full detail, beginning with the building of the hull and concluding with propulsion, ballasting, and sailing the completed model. All building methods and materials are described, including plank on frame construction, GRP molding of hulls, and casting of deck fittings. Chapters are devoted to the installation of electric motors and steam engines, and the fitting and operation of radio control equipment. This book is indispensable reading for ship modelers of all skill levels.

Tom Gorman, a former marine engineer, has been a professional ship modeler for more than twenty years.  He is the author of Finishing Scale Ship Models and Scale Model Ship Propulsion.
