An essential resource for ship modelers, this illustrated annual features a selection of the finest articles from Model Shipwright, a quarterly journal that's the foremost authority on from-scratch model-making. The 20 articles in this new color annual include historical painting schemes for ships built between 1750 and 1850, a guide to accurate gunnery placement, and details on explorer John Cabot's 15th-century sailing ship Matthew. Plus, it offers archival plans and building methods for ship models of all eras.
John Bowen is the author of several acclaimed titles for Conway Maritime Press and has been at the helm of Model Shipwright since its launch in 1972. His editorial experience and depth of knowledge have been key to its ongoing success.
