Text: English (translation)
Original Language: German
Evoking the age of wooden ships and iron men, Mondfeld has produced a highly detailed vade mecum for the period ship modeler. Using excellent line illustrations, graphs, and photographs, he charts a course through the intricate art of period ship modeling for ships of the age of sail. Additionally, there is maritime history on virtually every page. Since this work is an English translation of Historische Schiffsmodelle , the syntax is a bit stiff and the narrative runs into the gutter of the book, making for some difficulty in reading. Still, with this book the ship modeler will have fair winds to assist in this craft. Highly recommended.
