Hello Scott,

 

Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures.

No wonder you love the book so much.

I have that book too. Nothing can beat sitting infront of the fireplace with it and a nice glas of Port-Wine!

I've had this book for years - it's inspiring and humbling all at the same time.

 

Keep in mind the models were made without power tools or electricity........

The green covered edition referred to by Brian C is the second, revised edition published by SeaWatchBooks. This edition was published in 2010 (the first in 2007). It's an excellent production that does justice to the unique collection of models collected by the Kriegstein brothers over a number of years. The models are an inspiration. Indeed, most models are or should rightly be called works of art.

 

As samueljr writes, the models in this book were all built without power tools!

 

Yet again, SeaWatchBooks are to be congratulated on a first class production - and the authors on sharing their collection with us. I highly recommend this book!

I also have this book and as a bonus when the NRG was in San Fransisco we were invited to one of the brothers houses to get a good look at what was in the book.  Every now and then I look at the photos and wish I had some of them in my place.

Hello,

 

I have the first edition of this book (blue cover) and it is a beautiful one. There are some minor errors in the text, like listing HMS Hector as a British 74 at the battle of the Saints (while that Hector was a French ship of the line), but apart from this is an excellent visual reference.

Hi Scott, 

 

I have that book too and love looking through it. Like David B I was fortunate enough to visit Dr. Arnold Kriegstein's home to see his collection. Simply amazing models and, as has been said here, all done without power tools. Put's my own ship modeling work to shame... Of course, so do so many great ship modelers on this site.

Hello,

 

The blue jacketed Kriegstein was the initial volume.This edition is out of print. The green jaceted book is the new, revised and expanded edition. Six new models were introduced and the book had many more pages added. It is the version that is currently available at seawatchbooks.com.

 

Thanks,

Bob Friedman

Good morning, David. Tell me, if I have a question that can be answered Arnold or Henry Krigshtay, how can I write it? I have a question about the auction in 1974, where they bought one of the first of its models

Publisher handed my letter to Mr. Kriegstein. He was kind enough to answer. He said those details that interested me. In the history of the model. As she got into a collection Mystic Siaport.
