WARSHIP MODELLING ARTICLES (Page 1)

The following is a list of articles from various modelling magazines that have been scanned and reproduced in pdf format.  Some of these articles are  more than 40 years old and so do not therefore represent the latest modelling techniques but you may still find them of interest. The articles cover all sizes of ship, not just destroyers, frigates and escorts, etc. so please look through the list.  More will be added as I find time.

If you would like a copy of any of them, please e-mail me.
