WORKSHOP PRACTICE SHIP MODELLERS Summary

WORKSHOP PRACTICE SHIP MODELLERS by Brian King

Broad in scope, yet meticulous in its coverage, this book on workshops and workshop practices fills a hitherto neglected area of the modelling market. Brian King draws on his many years as a ship modeller spent developing and honing his skills and techniques in the workshop, to write a book that covers all areas in painstaking detail, and is generously illustrated with 250 illustrations and diagrams. The book is divided into four sections. The first discusses the workshop from the design itself to the types of tools and equipment that should be stored there. The second section deals with materials, with an in-depth analysis of the properties and usage of metals, woods, plastics and adhesives. Section three looks at machining methods, from lathe work to milling and photo etching. The fourth section covers model finishing, providing details on painting, whether brushing or spraying and the equipment required. The book can be used both as an encyclopedia of tools and materials and as a reference source for deciding what method to use to complete a specific task.
