I received my Volume II today and it's everything one could hope for. The accompanying CD with patterns and illustrations as well as printed plans make this one of the most well documented model builds I've ever seen. Ed and Bob (SeaWatch Books) have done a great service for ship modelers in general and plank on frame modelers in particular.

Ours is a life of constant reruns. We're always circling back to where we'd we started, then starting all over again. Even if we don't run extra laps that day, we surely will come back for more of the same another day soon. - Joe Henderson

I've passed on the details to my wife, along with a heavy hint, as I have a Birthday coming up next month!

I received my copy today. Wonderful !II :D An inspiration for an upcoming model.

Congratulations on the quality of the book and of the plans. For those who need to be self-taught, it's a great help.

While visiting Greg last weekend, I took a look at Volume II. It's every bit as lovely a production as Volume I. Well done, Ed and  SeaWatch.

This completes a very well written pair of books. Very clearly demonstrates by word and pictures the methods the author employs to produce his excellent results.
It is very easy to read and follows a good logical progression of assembly. In my humble opinion, it is right up there with the SWAN series!
My computer lost the ability to open and read the included CDs so I am anxious to see the information on them!
Could not agree more with the others that Mr. Tosti and the good people at SeaWatch Books did ship modelers a huge service by publishing these books.
Model(s) under construction: RATTLESNAKE. 1:48
Next on the launch : ECHO 1781 1:48

I agree wholeheartedly with Bryan Sonofagun, Seawatch is doing a yeoman's job! 

I bought about a dozen books and plan to buy a couple more as soon as my creditors get happier.

(l am just a happy customer, no other connection with Seawatch.)

Vol 2 of Niaad is as good as if not better than Vol 1, and that's saying something. Thanks Ed and seawatch for creating this.

Received my 2 volumes mot long ago and I echo every thing said . 2 fantastic books and Ed hasn't left a stone unturned in his work on the naiad . He has written in a way that even someone like me self with very limited scratch build skills can follow each build process with ease . The plans , well they speak for them selves . If you haven't these books yet I highly recommend you get them , you won't be disappointed . Great work Ed .

Ed, I will pick up my two copies of Volume II in New York as a perfect complement to Christmas holidays. I am sure it will be even better than volume I, not least because the color prints I know will accompany the text and drawings. I am proceeding in the building of the Naiad. It is a daunting task and my scrap books is a sad evidence thereof, but I am enjoing every hour I am able to spend in my workshop. Hawse timbers are finished and I hope to complete the work on the stern in a couple of weeks.

After the inception of your new great project, the interest in Naiad might perhaps be fading away, but nontheless I would like to post some pictures of my own model with few comments.

Smac,

 

I am glad to hear of your Naid build and I believe you will be pleased with Volume II.  Thank you for the support.  I would love to see your progress.  Why not start a build log on MSW?

Sorry the message flew away before I was done with it.

I would only like to stress the enormous contribution you have made to ship modeling with your forums, explanations, methods of work, drawings and research. We European modelers are used to the French technique of ship building with double frames after the Ancre books and the Naiad's  modeling technique is somewhat disconcerting, but absolutely authentic and thoroughly enjoyable.

Like everybody, everyday I look forward to your new posts.

Many thanks for sharing your art with us!

Regards

Salvatore

Ed,

if I ever started a build log it would only be a poor copy of yours, but I will still post some photos, hopefully soon. Once the work on the stern is finished I trust the most difficult parts of Naiad will be behind me and progress should become faster. Modeling Naiad is an exacting job, but seeing her grow up is so rewarding.

If I just had more time to devote to her ...

Thanks again

Salvatore

Hi Ed,

 

Sorry to bothering you with a small detail but reading the book Naiad II, I noticed that on page 102, chapter 28, the text finishes with "However,". The next line is missing.

 

Congratulations for the book.

 

Mauricio

Hi Ed,

I've just received my copy of Naiad Vol 2 - a most welcome belated Christmas present. What a beautiful job you've done with this book! I think it even ups the standard from Vol 1, and that was terrific itself. I've only had the chance to skim and dip into a few sections so far, but the way you've written this makes it a superb general reference book that will become a primary resource for me in the months and years ahead. Thank you so very much for making this contribution to the ship modelling community. Well done Sir!

Grant

Thank you, Grant and Mauricio.

 

It appears that in the final book production process the last paragraph and part of the preceding paragraph of Chapter 28 was somehow left out.  Sorry for this. The last wo paragraphs of Chapter 28. p 102 should read.

 

"You may wish to forgo the complexities described above in favor of simpler joints.  The quality of your models will not suffer simplification in these minor details.  However, I hope that the process described above will entice you to construct these authentically.

 

When the lower deck hatchways are installed, the ladders to the orlop level platforms can be added.  In keeping with our sequence and chapter arrangement, other lower decks details, partitions for example, will be covered with the upper deck framing in Chapter 31."

 

Sorry for any inconvenience.

 

Ed
