Description: The superb working model of HMS Warrior, featured in this book, was built on the traditional shipbuilderâ s scale of 1:48, and represents working scale modelling at its very best. It embodies all the varied skills which a shipmodeller requires to construct a truly first-class scratch-built ship. Warrior, built during a period of rapid change in the worldâ s navies, incoporates a myriad of characteristics for the modeller - an iron hull, laid decks, both steam and sail propulsion, a hoisting propeller, lowering funnels, a mass of both conventional and breech-loading ordnance, a traditional figurehead and gilded galleries, and a whole array of shipâ s boats. Equally varied are the materials and skills required to build such a complex vessel and the author explains in detail all the techniques needed for miniature replication - GRP moulding; metal working, both ferrous and non-ferrous, in brass, copper, aluminium, stainless steel, bronze, pewter and lead-tin mixes for casting; the uses of both plain and exotic timbers; the utilisation of silicone rubber and of adhesives; rope and sail making; and the application of paints and finishes. All modelmakers - to whatever level of expertise they aspire - will find in this book a mine of information to enhance their skills. For those wishing to build any warship, static or working, it is an essential reference manual.
