This vintage book is a complete guide to building model historical boats, with information on tools and equipment, complete directions for assembly, practical tips and hints, and more. Profusely illustrated and highly accessible, this volume is ideal for those with little previous experience, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature.
