Excellent book for the novice model ship builder. I got to page 11 before determining that model ship building was not only complicated but very expensive. The recommended basic tool set is costly and it only progresses from there

Mastini guides readers Many people would love to build a mantel-quality model of a sailing ship but are intimidated by seemingly arcane terminology and two left hands. Since my wife has a beach theme in our house, and has some simple looking boats around, I thought I could up our game a bit and build some fancier models to display.

Excellent book for the novice model ship builder. I got to page 11 before determining that model ship building was not only complicated but very expensive. The recommended basic tool set is costly and it only progresses from there. Thanks to this book I did not invest in an expensive model kit!

A great book for beginners in the realm of model shipbuilding. I'm only about one quarter through, and have learned more than in years of plastic shipbuilding and model rocketry through childhood and young adulthood teaching hundreds of 10 to 17 yrs. old boys at summer camp to build beginner through advanced and expert model rockets. Especially good with terminology used for all parts of tall ships, from bow to stern, deck to keel, shrouds and sails, and anchors, cannon and ordinance, detailing, varnish and paint to finish your mastercraftwork. There's even an English/Italian glossary at the end to describe every part on a working sailing ship. Loaded with detailed descriptions and drawings to illustrate just about every part of woodworking and shipbuilding, with numerous helpful hints and how to desciptions for beginners and experienced modelers. Shows techniques for bending wooden planking for the hull, laying down decking and bulkheads, gluing, sanding and finishing your work.

I've been making wood furniture as a hobby for almost 30 years and decided since I had the tools to try a wood ship kit. It occurred to me the parts would be small so I looked around for a well rated book on the subject and found this. It's a useful read, especially for a newcomer, because it describes what could be involved, how to fit things in different ways, tools, sources of information, and what the parts of the ship are (lots of them, many more than expected). For someone with experience you may learn some new ways to fit or make parts, some of his techniques are clever and inexpensive.

Over the past year or so, I've been tempted to adopt wooden ship building as a new hobby. I've modeled for years in other media (plastic, paper) and am also a woodworker, so it seemed like a good fit. Also, my son has been really getting into the Napoleonic wars and life in naval ships, so that was an added inducement. My typical method when becoming interested in something is to read anything I can about the subject. Consequently, I noticed on the net many references to this book and how good it is. So, I bought it.

After reading it, I understand much more about the whole process of building these model ships. The author is (was?) obviously very familiar with the process and had developed many techniques that worked for him. Would those same techniques work for someone else? Maybe...

One of the main problems for a novice looking to get in to this hobby is that the terminology of the time was unique and not necessarily logical. Nor, are the terms carried through to our own day. So, you have to put up with a fair amount of bewildering words. For instance, did you know that the Vangs connected the Gaff in the same way as a Stay?

My biggest two criticisms of the book is that the author used these terms repeatedly and that some of his techniques appear easy but are not. I suppose the use of the proper terms is a good thing, I just wish the approach would have been more descriptive - i.e. add more diagrams or a pictorial dictionary of the terms; this was started with the naming of the various sails and masts, but stopped there. As to the techniques mentioned, some of them were really set up to allow you to build one model after another - but I am not sure that I want to spend the time and money to build these fancy jigs when I might only build one model ship in my lifetime!

Another, more minor nit, is the loose organization of the logic flow in the book. At the beginning of each part, the author gives an overview of the flow. Unfortunately, in the body of the text, he then bounces around and does not necessarily follow his own order. Also, the overall sequence I think is flawed. The last two parts have you attach all the rigging and then add the various boats and their connections. But, in those models that I've seen it seems like adding the stuff on the deck would be easier to do before the rigging is all attached so you do not have to maneuver around that mass of fine wires.

Please do not take these criticisms as reasons not to buy the book. I thought I learned a lot from reading this brief book (only 115 pages). I am now looking at the actual model I purchased and can visualize a lot better what needs to be done and why it needs to be done in the order he recommends. So, I would concur that this is a good book - although not a great one.

Consider getting this book BEFORE you start building a kit. It gives tips, a glossary of definitions and drawings that are all excellent. Will help you immensely in many ways. Mr. Mastini has passed away but I wish I had been able to contact him and thank him for writing this book.

Good basic book for wood ship modeling. I built wood ships years ago and got away from it for a while. Now that I'm retired and can't do my heavy woodworking I thought I get back into ship modeling again. This book was a good refresher course for me wit a few new ideas. Not as comprehensive as I would have liked but that's only because I have had some experience in the past. Great book for beginners.

Ship Modeling covers a lot of good material although it is mostly about sailing ships. I'm working on a T-2 Tanker at this time (my father built them and took them on shake down cruises during World War Two). Never-the-less, there are parts of this book that I find are extreemly valuable. The Bluiejacket Ship Crafters Co will be saved many phone calls from me as a result. Examples: how do I paint these parts or which part is which (my model has hundreds), For anyone building a model made in Italy (and there are many) this book has a modeling English/Italian dictionary. Mr Mastini knowes his business and I applaud him for it.
This was well written and gave some great insight into model building with some techniques very helpful having purchased an Italian model the dictionary was helpful the sketches were too small and would be better if enlarged for greater detail, overall a good reference
