"This book tells you all about the design and construction of all sorts of sea-going model boats. It has been written by a man who perhaps knows as much about the subject as anyone, and what he says he has learnt from practical experience at sea."

About this title

"This book is primarily intended as an aid for the newcomer to model boat building. In taking the stage by stage construction of a typical model power boat, from the drawing board to completion, the book intends to present the fundamental principles of model boat building so that the novice will have no difficulty in constructing any of the models which have been dealt with in detail in the latter part. It is also presented to the experienced modeller as a reference book and as a summary of the author's own model boat building experience during the last 25 years."

Well illustrated with many illustrations and black & white photographs.

This is a fantastic book. I tracked one down and bought myself a physical copy (it was NOT cheap).
