Model Shipwright

A recent trip to Tewksbury, Glos. saw me coming away with these two books; Model Shipwright numbers 14 and 15 from 1976. The books were in this clearance box - £1.00 each and I choose the two with illustrations and plans of paddle steamers. As you can see from the second image there were a number of similar books being offered for sale.

Both books are packed with illustrations and information that should prove of worth and interest to me. At just £1.00 each a real bargain. I should also point out that the box and books were brought to my attention by Sue - thank you.

Tony, you must have more books on model making than the British library!

Not quite, they have twelve more than me, some early Featherstone and Hovels books. I used to have them but sold them at a bring-and-buy about two years ago:)

Don't tell my wife.

Mark G - I can confirm he definitely has more than the British Library! :) Two copies of some books!

I've always had a desire to model ships, but never done it. It will be interesting to see what projects come out of this.
