Beginner's Guide To Building Ships In Bottles

This book is set up for the first time model ship builder.  Two projects with detailed plans are presented which include a single sail lateen rig and typical sloop rig found on most modern sailboats.  As the name implies, the book is aimed at beginners who have never attempted putting a ship in a bottle before.  Many other texts in this field assume the modeler will be able to scale the hull, masts, sails and rigging from plans and drawings.  This book provides detail dimensioned drawings so the first timer will not get frustrated when attempting to fit everything inside the bottle.  After completing these projects the modeler will be ready for more complicated and advanced projects.  Please click on the author page below for some sample photos of the projects you can build.  When trying something for the first time, simple is better!

A nice introduction to the hobby. I have followed Sheridan's plans and constructed the models as he lays them out.There is nothing new in this book for experienced modelers, but beginners will find a straightforward introduction.

I did not receive this book. I actually forgot I ordered it, and was confused about a three-page comic book that was mysteriously included in an order. I thought it was a free sample trying to entice me to buy more comic books by that creator...after receiving the request to provide a review, I now realize that I did order this book, and probably got the obscure comic book instead.So this book is probably quite good, but I wouldn't know.

Do not buy the Kindle Edition of this book - the figures have not been reproduced in this edition. This is sort of important when figures such as "Steps in Creating the Hull" (Figure 4.1) do not appear in the book.

Given as a gag gift, but it turns out its aimed at people that already have a fully wood-working shop. I suppose, if you had a wood-shop with a lathe, this would be a place to start.
