Miniature Shipbuilder 2015

by Robert A Wilson

Miniature Shipbuilder 2015

This is my latest publication on the art of miniature ship model building.  

It only covers the building of merchant ships.

It has 158 pages (A4) size, 46,421 words, and about 285 images, mainly colour photographs.

IT IS NOT A MOVIE.   It will run in computers with Acrobat Reader installed in them.   That is most of them, World-wide.     Each chapter is complete in itself, so the best way to make use of it, is to just print the part you wish to study at the time

Neither is it really suitable for e-readers or tablets, as it prints at A4 size. 

The files will be sent automatically as soon as the Paypal payment of £8 is made.    Occasionally, a download does not go through.   If that happens, simply e-mail me at:

And I will send it direct.
