Book Details

¬†Warships are often appealing subjects for working models, especially if there is a personal or family connection with a vessel. However, models based on warships can have a reputation for being difficult to build and safely operate. This can be avoided if the idea of ‘Stand-Off Scale’ is used. This is where the model will have the appearance of the full-size when sailing, but is a practical working model boat. To successfully build this type of working boat and minimize the problems that might occur, it is important to have some understanding of how such ships work. With this in mind, this book not only details all the information needed to design, outfit and operate a model warship, but also supplies information about how the boats operate. AUTHOR: Glynn Guest started building models as a schoolboy with free flight model aircraft leading to radio controlled models. He quickly realised that model boats tended to last longer than aircraft and definitely did not get stuck up in trees. Having a technical education, it soon became more rewarding to design his own models and learn how they work. He has worked in most areas of this hobby, but model warships have always been a favourite subject. Since the mid-70s, he has had many plans and articles published in international model magazines. 238 illustrations
