Ship Modelers Shop Notes

The Nautical Research Guilds Ship Modelers Shop Notes book, first published in 1979 and out of print for several years, is now back in print!

This popular and insightful volume discusses the construction of ship models in numerous articles written by marine historians and ship model builders. Edited by Merritt Edson and assisted by Ben Lankford, Edward Mueller and Norman Rubin, the book is a compilation of shop notes and longer articles from out-of-print material contained in Volumes 1 through 25 of the Nautical Research Journal.

This book has been a standard for ship model building, and highly acclaimed by professionals and beginners alike. The material has not gone out of date. The articles are by notables such as Howard I Chapelle, Harold M. Hahn, Michael Costagliola, Ben Lankford, Merritt Edson, Dana McCalip, and many others. There are nearly 170 articles, 9 plans of hull lines and many drawings contained in 216 pages. This is a completely separate book from Ship Modeler’s Shop Notes II published in 2009.

A wonderful reference for both new and experienced model shipwrights and something that everyone should have on their reference bookshelf.
