Author(s): John Bowen and Jean Hood (eds)
The fourth edition of a new, full-colour annual focusing on all facets of 'scratch-built' model shipbuilding, as well as related articles on restoration, archaeology, historical research and marine art. Twenty articles describe, explain, inform and inspire, illustrated with modelmakers' own photographs, archival plans, prints and artworks. The annual succeeds Model Shipwright, the quarterly journal which ran to 144 issues spanning 36 years. This edition will include new research and builds, plus additional sections including a Modeller's Draught, Book News and an image gallery. Fully international in scope, Shipwright is an essential volume for any dedicated ship modeller or maritime enthusiast.
