Our Detailed Guide to Scratch Building Model Ships has been designed to help model buildings who wish to learn how to build a true plank on frame model ship from scratch. These are the same books we sell as color printed books but these are merely in PDF format on a data DVD.
Each chapter covers a specific aspect of construction of a plank on frame model ship from scratch. We have addressed the use of CAD to design a working set of plans from which to build your model from. Detailed color photos assist the modeler in learning the techniques of scratchbuilding. NOTE: These are the same printed books we were offering for scratch building. They come on a single CD.
The following chapters are included:
- Introduction to Plank on Frame Construction
- Creating Your Own Plans
- Making the Keel, Stem, and Sternpost

This course comes on a data DVD and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. All chapters are in Acrobat Reader format (PDF).
