Overview

The third edition of a new, full-colour annual focusing on all facets of 'scratch-built' model shipbuilding. Highlights of the 2012 edition include an exclusive interview with Simon Stephens, Curator of the Ship Model Collection at the National Maritime Museum; an article by David Howell, President of the Royal Society of Marine Artists; and an article by Peter Goodwin, who has provided a fascinating account of the practice of firing broadsides in British men of war, based on empirical historical investigation. In addition, an exciting gallery section presents a selection of new photographs of the NMM's outstanding range of ship models, and Dave Wooley gives a detailed report of exhibits at Intermodellbau Dortmund, Europe's largest model show.

Builds include John Laing's interpretive model of a pilot cutter with an intriguing ancestral link; Malcolm Darch's meticulous construction of the 38-gun frigate Minerva, based on extensive primary research; two exquisite miniature vessels by regular contributor Robert A. Wilson; a crewed model of the expedition sloop HMS Swallow; Neil Howard's account of a distinctive turn-of-the-century steam trawler; Ian Hunt's majestic four-masted barque Sindia, the culmination of a fourteen-year-long build; a museum-quality build of the Soviet aviation cruiser Kiev, and a 1:64 model of the modern sail training ship Tenacious. The Annual is rounded off as usual with Book News, reviewing the year's modelling and maritime titles. Fully international in scope, Shipwright is an essential volume for any dedicated ship modeller or maritime enthusiast.
