Waterline Model Ships by Kelvin Holmes Waterline Model Ships by Kelvin Holmes
Ref: K1940
Waterline Model Ships by Kelvin Holmes: Waterline Model Ships is a collector’s guide to small ‘1/1 200’ and ‘1/1 250’ scale models of warships and merchantmen, covering mainly the period 1880 until the present day. Organised by manufacturer past and present, both in the UK and farther afield, there are numerous illustrations of typical models.

Newcomers may be surprised by the scope of this absorbing hobby which can offer everything from early ironclad battleships and trans-Atlantic liners of the 1 930s to the cruiseships and missile destroyers of today. Collecting may take on many themes such as famous shipping lines or naval battles, or even entire fleets.

Submarines. Models and their Originals by carsten Heint Submarines. Models and their Originals by carsten Heint
Ref: K863
Submarines. Models and their Originals by carsten Heintze: Submarines have a unique fascination. What makes them so special - in the original as well as in the model - is the breadth of technology that is required for a vessel to dive and, above all, to return safely to the surface.
In this book Carsten Heintze covers: A comprehensive collection of submarines. Models and their associated originals from all periods of underwater travel. Submarines for civilian use. Various types of military submarines. Model making using a wide range of construction techniques. Diverse diving technology, from the simple model that dives dynamically to high-tech submarines with complicated diving systems

An Introduction to R/C Scale Sailing Models by Phillip An Introduction to R/C Scale Sailing Models by Phillip
Ref: K712
An Introduction to R/C Scale Sailing Models by Phillip Vaughan Willams: A comprehensive yet concise resource for a fascinating and growing specialism... regarded by many as the ultimate challenge in marine modelling. The author has compiled the good practice of many scale sail modellers, who are fully acknowledges, and refers to their successful sailing models from small working boats to majestic square riggers. The book contains systematic coverage of planning a modelling project, basic modelling techniques, solutions to scaling problems, radio control systems of varying complexity, sailing techniques and a wide range of prototype subjects. It is well illustrated, has a useful reference section and a full glossary of terms.

Painting Model Boats by Rick Eyrich: Painting Model Boats by Rick Eyrich:
Ref: K465
Painting Model Boats by Rick Eyrich: In this book, Rick Eyrich details the ins and outs of painting both static and remote-controlled model boats including those steps necessary to prepare these marinecraft for their paintwork Often overlooked, the actual preparation of a small-scale model hull for painting can greatly determine how well the finished project will appear; and the Painting Model Boats book will clearly overview this process.

Surface shaping, filling, primering and waterproofing are all covered in this publication after which there will be chapters dedicated on how best to transfer whatever paint/finish the hobbyist has chosen for his/her modelcraft. Yet along with discussing the basics of painting most any type of model vessel, this book will also spell out some of the ways to protect your handiwork once it’s been affixed to the watercrafts exterior. Clear coats, graphics applications and repairs will all be talked about at length; plus, each of these subjects will be broken down into their static or R/C boat usages as well.

Painting Model Boats is intended to help anyone, both novice and expert alike, to decorate his/her model vessel to whatever level of finish they might desire in their boats. Because, in the final analysis, the overall appearance of any small-scale marinecraft will largely be judged by its outer paintwork!

Simply Model Submarines Submarines edited by Chris Jack Simply Model Submarines Submarines edited by Chris Jack
Ref: K405
Simply Model Submarines Submarines edited by Chris Jackson Since 1986 Marine Modelling International magazine has regularly featured submarines, both models and full size, and hence over the years a large stock of information has developed. The features selected for this compendium are written by experts and cover the full span of active use of the submarine in warfare, starting from the CSS Hunley and finishing with the latest nuclear Royal Navy submarine HMS Trenchant.

With 112 pages, many photographs and illustrated diagrams, this book contains an array of hints and tips for model makers which apply to other designs as well as model submarines. Chapters on the history of submarines, diving systems and frequently asked questions, also provide in depth information which is essential for any model submarine maker. An essential read for any modeller wishing to further their knowledge of this fascinating form of marine modelling.

Scale Model Steamboats by Phillip Vaughn Williams Scale Model Steamboats by Phillip Vaughn Williams
Ref: K308
Scale Model Steamboats by Phillip Vaughn Williams: Over the last ten years there has been enormous growth in the number of boat modellers wishing to use steam plant as a propulsion system for their scale and semi-scale models. This has been the result of the commercial availability of kits and factory built steam engines and boilers, allowing modellers with limited facilities and engineering background to install simple to operate units into a variety of model prototypes. For such modellers a book explaining the basic requirements has been long overdue.

This book first outlines the development of marine steam power and the principles, design and characteristics of prototype steam plants. After a section on model steam plants, their selection and matching to particular models and their installation and running, the author considers the requirements for safe running as far as the hull and superstructure are involved. He runs through the build of a typical open launch model, ideal for access to the plant and then considers other types of ships such as merchantmen, tugs, fishing boats, pleasure steamers and so on. Experienced steam buffs will find much to stimulate them to a new and perhaps more challenging model, and newcomers will be able to absorb the basic facts so they can proceed with confidence and in complete safety, to build and operate these fascinating model steam engines and boats.

Scale Model Warships  by Tim Morgan Scale Model Warships by Tim Morgan
Ref: K162
Scale Model Warships by Tim Morgan From the stately Dreadnought battleship to the high-tech missile ships of today, warships have always held a special allure for the maker of scale models, but all too often modellers can be put off by the complexity both of the models and of the ships themselves. In this book, Tim Morgan - regular contributor to Marine Modelling International magazine - takes the reader step-by-step into the world of the fighting ship. Following a comprehensive guide to the warships of yesterday and today, the book tackles each and every stage of building a model warship. Topics covered include: Selection and suitability of subject; Plans and research ; Specialist suppliers. Hulls and decks ; Working in plastic and brass ; Construction of superstructures and Fittings, finishing and painting.
The emphasis within the book is on modem ships and the up-to-date modelling methods used to recreate them. Lavishly illustrated with photographs and diagrams of both full size and model warships, many of which are being published for the first time, this book provides an unprecedented wealth of detail for the model-builder and armchair enthusiast alike.

Static Marine Modelling by Philip Hyphe Static Marine Modelling by Philip Hyphe
Ref: K006
Static Marine Modelling by Philip Hypher: Now, well into retirement, the author, Philip Hypher, has returned to his boyhood interest in model making, of which he is a keen amateur.

In this book he describes his techniques for making a Venetian gondola, the P&O liner Maloja, the Oseberg Viking Ship and the famous Cunarder,Aquitania, hoping that these idea's may help others to make ships or boats of their own choice. Preceding each model-making chapter, there is another chapter about the real boat or ship, giving a brief yet interesting insight into its historical background, and recommends research as being a most rewarding part of this fascinating hobby.
