Since its launch in 1972, this quarterly journal has been regarded as the world's leading ship modelling publication. The mixture of articles, reviews, news and comment from modelmakers worldwide provides the best and most detailed information available anywhere, and is enhanced with authentic plans, clear diagrams and many photographs. Articles explain how individual models were researched and constructed, problems addressed and solved along the way. The whole range of maritime vessel is covered, from regional craft to sailing warships to merchantmen and modern liners and battleships, and comprehensive ship histories are often included. Contributors construct a range of dioramas, waterline and working models. Each issue of the journal comes complete with a free large-scale modeller's draught with accompanying modelling tes, illustrations and specifications for a featured vessel.
