  1. I’m getting back into Scale Model Wooden Ship Building would you recommend any Model Building books and tools that would assist me in getting back into Model Ship Building would be appreciated

    1. I’m a huge fan of Charles Davis’s model ship building books. He offered titles ranging from simple solid hull construction to plank-on-frame scratch building. I think Dover is republishing them now. However, if you want a quick way to start, check out Midwest Products’ line of “Apprentice” kits. They are wonderfully designed and documented. We are building the Chesapeake Bay Flattie from this series starting on this page: http://www.themodelshipwright.com/construction-articles/building-midwests-chesapeake-bay-flattie-ship-model-kit/

      As for tools, check out our page Tools for Model Ship Building. These tools are available at most hobby shops, even some of the big retailers that cater more to arts & crafts decorating.

  2. I am a little confused as to how many volumes for the Admiral Paris series I have purchased 2 volumes but do not know which volumes they are, one has plates 121to180 the other one has a copy right date of 2013, what am i missing here. THANKS FOR ANY HELP DONFARR

    1. Don, the first volume, “Selected Plates From …” has ship plans from the first two volumes of the six-volume set. The text pages in our copies of those volumes were too damaged to reproduce (which is the only reason we could afford them. Good quality copies cost thousands of dollars). “Troisième partie” includes the text and ship plan plates from the third volume. I have yet to find copies of the last three volumes inexpensive enough that I can justify removing the binding for scanning, as that destroys the collectible value of the books.
