Just to help out those in the hobby and new folks coming in to the hobby, here is a list of books that one may look in to getting for your library, or for those new to the hobby just starting to build up one. Weither it be PDF on the computer or hard back books that one just enjoy holding and reading. This isn't my list but one that Portia Takakjian figure would help others in the hobby. It is a list that I followed and since then have added even more books but does give one a base line to go by. Some are a little on the costly side and other's probably long out of print but do hope its of some help to you, it was for me. Gary

At first this seemed to be too blurry to get anything from it.  However, if you click on the thumbnail you can read it.  It expands the page and clarifies the letters to where it is quite legible.

Those are fantastic lists of references, Gary.  Any idea what these were published in (magazine)?


I can see an expansion on my library in the not too distant future (well, after the move is over, at least).


Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.

Great list, thanks.

Many people believe that Captain J. Cook discovered Australia in 1770. They tend to forget that Dutch mariner Willem Janszoon landed on Australia’s northern coast in 1606. Cook never even sighted the coast of Western Australia).

Chen and Brian,


Back in March during server maintenance, there were some issues and some photos got lost.

The problem has been resolved but the lost photos were not able to be restored.

It is explained here: http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/6021-server-maintenance-scheduled/


Maybe that is what happened here as well.



Those we loved but lost are no longer where they were, but are always where we are.

In the gallery: Albatros 1840 - Constructo

Gary would have to re-load the pictures as no one else has access to that post.

If the list came from the 1980's, then it misses out many great books that have been published over the past 20 to 30 years. And there are many of them, which is a huge advantage for model-makers today.

Be sure to sign up for an epic Nelson/Trafalgar project if you would like to see it made into a TV series  http://trafalgar.tv

Hi Guys. I finally got around to redoing the photo's. Just click on the photo and it should enlarge so that you can get a good look at the books. As druxey said it  is a little dated back to the 1980's but does help  one who doesn't know about them and just may want to add them to their library. Gary
