  1. hello i think you should make a jig as the curve of the bow then after soaking the plank use hair dryer and carefully - slowly slowly make the curve against the jig best regards , Michael.
  2. wow i just found this site https://www.bookdepository.com/ and they has best prices !! + free shipping so i ordered all the 3 books Best regards Michael.
  3. Thank you Charter !!! OK ii decide to buy all of those books the only problem is the shipping to Israel (its very expensive) so i will buy them one by one ..... which book to start with ?
  4. THANK YOU Charter! i just check the book "he New Period Ship Handbook" and i saw that someone comment : please tall me what do you think - ...you are building one of the ship models included. Even then, there is not likely to be much insight into a specific kit mentioned. All the subjects that would be of interest to a beginner are given short shrift and little in the way of expansion or illustration, and the comments regarding tools, glues and paints are so general as to be worthless. The few color panels are of completed models, but offer little in the way of detail or enlightenment. The photography isn't even that good. As a beginner to tall ship modeling, I wasted my money on this book. I feel mislead as the title and description implies that there is more here than the previous edition released just a year earlier. The "New" is of little value compared to the original Period Ship Handbook. Save your money and buy that one instead.
  5. i want to buy them as a real book, not as an electronic copy but before starting ordering i hope to find some review in our forum ..
  6. Hello friends, im searching for books about the HMS VICTORY (im working on the caldercraft model) so i will be more than happy to get some reviews from ship modelers also want to buy some books about the Battle of Trafalgar best regards , Michael.
