A Detailed Guide To Scratch Building a Model Ship

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:

  1. Introduction to Plank on Frame Construction
  2. Creating Your Own Plans
  3. Making the Keel, Stem, and Sternpost
  4. Making the Frames
  5. Making the Framing Jig
  6. Framing the Model
  7. Planking the Hull
  8. Lower Deck Details
  9. Main Deck Details
  10. Upper Deck Details
  11. Outer Hull Details
  12. Miscellaneous Details


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).
