Tug and Boat Modelling Books
« on: December 16, 2009, 09:28:27 »
I am looking for some feed back please on two Traplet Titles. Some books seem to promise much but deliver little. Is there a book reviewer on the forum please?

Scratch Building Marine Models  by Richard Webb

The Model Tugboat Book 2nd Edition by Chris Jackson


and if they are any good.........anyone with a 2nd hand copy they want to sell.

If it aint broke.........just leave it with me for 5 minutes.

There are some offered on Amazon. Also, there are some second hand tug modeling books on Advanced Book Exchange. There was some book discussion earlier on the Forum here:

I have The Model Tugboat Book, it's really a collection of articles from Marine Modelling magazine. All chapters are good but it doesn't go into things in any great depth. I'd give it 7 out of 10

Don't have the Ricky Webb one, sorry
