I agree, I have had this book since the early days of the Halifax build and there is a lot of useful information in it.

Hi Dontshootme! BigGrin

I'm also making my first wooden model ship, we're in at the deep end! and any good books like this is great I also went for this book. Another good one for beginners is Ship Modeling From Stem To Stern by Milton Roth.
