Historic Ship Models is an all-in-one research tool for any marine enthusiast. Simply browsing the details of ship building in this book has allowed me to spot errors in period ship model kits by major manufacturors helping me to make my project as accurate as possible and actually enhance the beauty of the finished ship. Subjects include planning, planking, stearing mechanisms and rudders, masts, rigging, sails, armament and cannons, and anchors just to name a few. From amatuer to expert, this book is unquestionably a must for the library of any marine enthusiast interested in the age of the sailing ships. To those interested in historic model ship building, 'If you buy only one book to referance your project, this is it.'
