Model Steamers and Motor Boats - How to Build and Run Them

Percival Marshall

This vintage book is a complete guide to building model historical boats, with information on tools and equipment, complete directions for assembly, practical tips and hints, and more. Profusely illustrated and highly accessible, this volume is ideal for those with little previous experience, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "Model Power-boating as a Hobby", "Exhibition and Non-Working Models", "Clockwork-driven Model of a Motor Launch", "Design for a Model Stern-Wheeler", "Model Steam Tug", "Model Cargo Boat", "Model Steam Yacht", "Model River Gunboat with Turbine Machinery", "Model Destroyer", and much more. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on model building.
