Rigging Period Ship Models: A Step-by-Step Guide to the Intricacies of Square-Rig

Rigging Period Ship Models: A Step-by-Step Guide to the Intricacies of Square-Rig

The rigging of period ship models is the most complex task which any modeller has to take on, for an eighteenth-century man-of-war boasted mile on mile of rigging, more than 1,000 blocks, and acres of canvas. To reduce this in scale, and yet retain an accurate representation, is an awesome undertaking.
This now classic work untangles the complex web, and, using some 400 drawings, the author shows clearly how each separate item of rigging is fitted to the masts, yards and sails. Each drawing deals with only one particular item so that it can be seen clearly in isolation. The lead of a particular halliard, the arrangement of a bracing line, these and every other detail is depicted with startling clarity. Based on the author’s research of numerous eighteenth-century models, each one with its contemporary rigging still extant, the information is both meticulous and accurate.
The remarkable visual immediacy and clarity of this work makes it truly unique and no modeller of period ships can afford to be without it at his side. In addition, the book is a ‘must-have’ practical reference work for all those involved in the rigging and repair of historic ships.

Rigging Period Fore-and-aft Craft

Rigging Period Fore-and-aft Craft

The rigging of period ship models is arguably the most complex task that any modeller has to accomplish; the intricacies can be daunting and visual references limited. The author's first book, Rigging Period Ship Models, was a triumph of clarity for those wishing to decipher the complexites of square rig. This new book does the same for fore-and-aft rigs and describes and depicts the rigging of three typical 18th century vessels - an American schooner, an English cutter and a three-masted French lugger. The author has, after studying in detail numerous contemporary models in museums, drawn some 200 diagrams which show clearly how each separate item of rigging is fitted to the masts, yards and sails. Each drawing deals with only one particular aspect so allowing the reader to see it in isolation. Clear headings and concise captions add to the ease with which the book can be used. Whether a modelmaker needs to rig a whole ship or just requires information on one aspect, it is all here. The remarkable visual immediacy and clarity of this work will delight modelers and enthusiasts alike and no modeller of period ships will wish to be without it.
