David Griffith says in the book that he is not the best modeller in the UK; he under rates himself. The modelling skills shown and shared are outstanding.
Of note in the book is the section on soldering for masts and other Photo Etch (PE). Working through each stage of the building process he shows tips and techniques to improve model boats all along the way.
There’s a lot of detailing information at many levels along the way. If you are a modeller and want to grow your skills, ship modeller or not, this book is well worth the read.
