SHIP MODELLING SOLUTIONS
By Brian King. Paperback, 188mm x 235mm, 175 pages, monochrome photographs.
Brian King has earned an international reputation for the quality of his models built using skills initially learnt during the course of a 5-year craft apprenticeship where he acquired the basic practical skills in both wood and metal work.
These allied to a natural talent have been the source of his mostly very complicated models of large battleships. He is particularly interested in warships of the late Victorian era, which he thinks has largely been ignored by ship modellers hitherto. He is a great exponent of the art of metal etching about which, with Azien Watkin, he has written two books. This book is a compilation of articles contributed by Brian to Model Boats magazine over a period of years in which this master modeller has passed on many gems to would-be builders of ship models.
A lifetime of modelling experience is contained within these pages, there are few modellers who will not benefit from the opportunity to read and learn.
