Model Shipwright, Issue 120

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, Feb 1, 2003 - History - 72 pages
0 Reviews

This quarterly journal, since its launch in 1972, has been regarded as the world’s leading ship modelling publication. The mixture of articles, reviews, news and comment from modelmakers world-wide provides the best and most detailed information available anywhere, and is enhanced with authentic plans, clear diagrams and many photographs.


Although the miniature ships are the most important feature of the journal, with articles explaining how individual models were researched and constructed, the other aspects of model making have not been forgotten – dioramas, modelling techniques, tools, and recent events are all covered.


Each issue of the journal comes complete with a free large-scale modeller’s draught with accompanying modelling notes, illustrations and specifications for a featured vessel.
