Last month Conway published this new book on the Cutty Sark. I did order it but didn't receive it yet so this is no review. However, from the description it looks very interesting.


Should you order it from outside the UK, do check shipping charges first. One supplier charged 15 pounds for delivery to Holland, which is almost the price of the book itself. Google for the best offers!

I received the book today. In fact, it's the ship's biography from design up to the Conservation Project 2006-2012, beautifully illustrated. The book is about A4 size and it includes George Campbell's General Arrangement, Sail and Rigging plans as A3 foldouts (these attachments are too small, you need a magnifying glass to decipher them; it would have been better to enclose the full sized plans in a folder).


The book is NOT like the books in Conway's "Anatomy Of The Ship" series. For a model maker the book is more inspirational than anatomical. But for ship lovers it is certainly worth its price.


So, again as a model maker, do I need it? NO. Do I like it? YES.
