Model Shipwright No 116
At first sight it may seem that there
is little in this quarterly publication for the wargamer. However I was
surprised to find a number of articles that could have applications on the
For example there is a contemporary
photograph of the Confederate commerce raider Rappahanock, that I at least found
interesting. There is also an interesting article on the Fleet Destroyer, HMS
Barfleur, one of the “Battle” Class that came into service at the end of
World war II. A full set of plans are enclosed to enable the skilled modeler to
produce the vessel for the table top.
There is a fascinating article on the excavation of a medieval Cog or trading vessel, and the subsequent reconstruction of the vessel that is now on display in Amsterdam. This is certainly of interest for anyone interested in the medieval period.
Also in this edition was a detailed article on the career and reproduction in model form of the cruise ships Oriana and Canberra. Finally details were given for the construction of a diorama featuring World War I submarines. In all an interesting read for the naval enthusiast, but not really for the general reader
