Our Detailed Guide to Building Model Ship Kits has been designed to help model builders who are building a model ship kit for which we have no specific practicum for. It contains 12 chapters. Each chapter covers a specific aspect of construction of a model ship kit. We have addressed the various designs that we have encountered over the years and how to tackle those designs.


NOTE: These are the same books we used to offer in a printed and spiral bound format before losing our printing company. They are in PDF format and come on one single data DVD.


The following chapters are included:


  1. Building the Framework
  2. Planking the Decks
  3. Planking the Hull

For best results when printing these documents, we recommend Koala Double Side Glossy Photo Paper which is available on Amazon. This paper is very similar to the paper that was used to print these books by our former printing company.
