Historical Sailing Ships

To actually sail historical model sailing ships by remote control is a captivating idea and not as difficult to do as you might imagine.

This book looks at the construction of remote controlled sailing ships as true to the original models. In an easy to understand form, it deals with the special questions that arise, covering everything from the theory of sailing, suitable originals, the basics of model-making and general construction hints to providing exact details as to how the sails are controlled. It shows you how to create fore and aft sails, square sails, how to build in sail functions such as setting, gathering in, bracing — indeed everything that you need to truly sail your ship. In addition there are tips on the kind of ancillary drives you might choose, on how to manufacture the ropery, increase the rudder area, on functional counter blades and much more.

Almost 130 photos and drawings demonstrate tried and tested solutions to enable every model maker to taste the success of building a true sailing ship.A comprehensive compendium for the construction and operation of historical, remote controlled sailing ships.
