Donald DresselISBN: 0830628681;
A modeler's reference for planking wooden ships-both kit and scratch models! Planking is one of the most important, and least often addressed, aspects of shipmodeling- until now! Here is a complete explanation of several different types of planking procedures. Of particular interest are details on: Selection of wood-including boxwood, pearwood, ebony, holly, cherry, and walnut; Special "jigs" to assist in construction-including wood forms and clamps; The many available types of tools and glues, and how best to use them; The form used to help bend the plank around the bow area of the hull; Tips on the "batten" as a guide in the planking process; The use of clinker-built planking as an alternative process; The simple use of "push pins" when attaching the planks to the bulkhead; Planking of the "false deck" when building a kit model.
