This vintage book is a complete guide to designing and building model boats, with information on tools and equipment, rigging, fitting engines, and many other related aspects. Profusely illustrated and highly accessible, this book is ideal for those with little previous experience, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Building Model Yachts”, “Rigging and Sailing Model Yachts”, “Making and Fitting Simple Model Boats”, “Building a Model Atlantic Liner”, “Vertical Engine for a Model Launch”, “Model Launch Engine with Reversing Gear”, and “Making a Show Case for a Model Boat”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on model building.
