Miniature Ship Models

A History and Collector’s Guide

Author: Paul Jacobs

This book is the first comprehensive history of how the 1:1200 scale and its 1:1250 continental equivalent became accepted as the modern standard for miniature ship models. The origins can be traced back to the first years of the twentieth century and their use as identification aids by the military during the First World War, but when peace came the manufacturers aimed their increasingly sophisticated products at collectors, and acquiring, modifying or scratch-building miniature ship models has been an avidly pursued hobby ever since. This book charts the commercial rise and fall of the manufacturers, and the advancing technology that produces ever more detailed and accurate replicas. The author - himself a lifetime collector and builder of models - looks at the products of each manufacturer, past and present, rating their quality and suggesting why some are regarded as more collectible than others. But the book deals with more than off-the-shelf models, covering subsidiary issues like painting, modifying and diorama settings, and is illustrated throughout with many of the finest examples of the genre. The combination of fascinating background information with stunning visual presentation will make this book irresistible to any collector or enthusiast.

The Life and Ship Models of Norman Ough

Norman Ough is considered by many as simply the greatest ship modeler of the twentieth century and his exquisite drawings and meticulous models have come to be regarded as masterpieces of draughtsmanship, workmanship and realism; more than technically accomplished ship models, they are truly works of art. This new book is both a tribute to his lonely genius and a practical treatise for model shipwrights. Ough lived most of his adult life far from the sea in a flat high above the Charing Cross Road in London, where his frugal existence and total absorption in his work led to hospitalization on at least two occasions; he was an eccentric in the truest sense but he also became one of the most sought-after masters of his craft. Earl Mountbatten had him model the ships he had served on; his model of HMS Queen Elizabeth was presented to Earl Beatty; film production companies commissioned models for effects in several films. Incorporating many of his original articles from Model Maker Magazine, his detailed line drawings now kept in the Brunel Institute, and photographs of his models held in museums and at Mountbattens house, this book presents an extraordinary level of practical information as well as an inspiring panorama of perhaps the most perfect warship models ever made; model makers, naval enthusiasts and historians will welcome his remarkable insights into the ships of the two World Wars.

G2V – A star of main consequence also called by space navigators “Yellow Dwarf”. The centre of the system consists of 13 planets placed on the spheres borders. It only gets mentioned in navigational charts or in space spying reports . This is the only inhabited planet and it is of no interest to military or industrial companies. The planet situated on the galaxy boundaries becomes a base for biological research. Viruses created in secret laboratories are being tested on the planet’s inhabitants of different races living in the Far Cosmos. The main characters by accident find themselves in an alien base hidden away in the Himalayas – Shambala. The scientists identify a new deathly virus which can threaten Inhabited Spheres. The representatives of the Earth civilization turn out to be in the centre of events connected not only with biotechnologies but also with the intrigues the ultimate aim of which is to take control over the planet system. Challenging and dangerous travelling, space fights, pirate ships and the Exot fleet are all those things which our characters are to face. The crew of the frigate “Spirit” leaves Earth and goes ahead to see the unknown.

Thunderer

Building a Model Dreadnought

HMS Thunderer was the third Orion class battleship, one of the Super Dreadnoughts built to counter German naval expansion, and was laid down one hundred years ago in April 1910. At 22,200 tons she was the largest ship ever built on the Thames but she was to be responsible for the bankruptcy of her builders, the Thames Iron Works. The author’s 1/96 scale museum-quality model of this ship reflects the massive engineering of the prototype and brings to life the power and potency of the Super Dreadnoughts. Every aspect of the building is covered, from the hull to wireless equipment, and all the different techniques required to bring a complex model battleship to completion are clearly explained, including casting in metal and GRP, silver brazing, soft soldering, metal fabrication in steel, brass, copper, aluminium and pewter, and lathe turning and milling operations for the production of guns and propellers. The author also covers the contemporary American battleship, USS Texas, the only remaining ship of that type and era, and an inspiration for any modeller setting out to tackle this subject. Not just a superb ‘how to’ manual, the book is also an eloquent testimony to the skills of the designers and the original builders as well as a wonderful evocation of the great ships that fought at the battle of Jutland. WILLIAM MOWLL has been building large-scale ship models for more than twenty-five years. His interest is focussed on the iron ships of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and he has completed superb models of SS Great Britain and HMS Warrior, both on display at the sites where the prototypes were built.

Viele besuchen den berühmten Zauberer Leitmeritz in seinem hochgelegenen Schloss, denn mit seinem roten Zauberbuch kann er sehnlichste Wünsche erfüllen. Nur für seinen Diener Chancery, der sich schämt, weil er hässlich ist, weiß er keinen Rat. Chancery versucht sein Glück auf eigene Faust, doch als er zitternd das Zauberbuch aufschlägt, flattern die Buchstaben davon. Entsetzt sammelt er sie wieder auf, aber das Buch hat gelitten. An Frosch und Drache, die den Zauberer konsultieren, versagen überraschend Leitmeritz' Zauberkräfte. Sein Ruhm ist dahin. Erst als es Chancery gelingt, seine vermeintliche Hässlichkeit zu bejahen, sich an seinem Lachen zu freuen, gewinnt das Zauberbuch seine Zauberkraft wieder zurück. Schlüssig oder nicht begeisternd ist die fantasievolle, in Farben und Formen schwelgende Illustration der märchenhaftpoetischen, hintergründigen Geschichte. Überwältigend die Einfälle von P. Bernasconi und seine Gabe, in Collagentechnik allein durch ein nur angedeutetes Nachtfenster eine Atmosphäre des Unheimlichen, Zauberischen zu schaffen. Ein illustratives Meisterwerk, sehr zu empfehlen.. Der Zauberer Leitmeritz kann viele Wünsche erfüllen. Aber seinem Diener Chancery, der gern ein schöner Mann wäre, kann er nicht helfen. Chancery versucht auf eigene Faust sein Glück und Aufregendes geschieht ... Ab 5.
