The 'plank-on-frame' method is the pre-eminent ship modelling technique, which nearly all model shipwrights aspire to. Taking as his example the two-masted sloop Cruiser of 1752, the author leads the reader through every stage of building a model of the vessel, from preliminary research and taking off lines to the actual construction of the hull and fittings, and its masting and rigging. Each clear, step-by-step stage is described in the text and illustrated with explanatory line drawings and photographs. Since publication in 1992 this volume has established itself as the standard work of reference for model hull construction.About the Author:

He was also a member of the team which built the model of the Mulberry Harbour. After the war he worked for a number of years building shipbuilders' models. He built many sailing ship models and was a regular contributor to the journal Model Shipwright.
