I acquired an opened Constructo Cutty Sark kit but the PLANS and MANUAL were not with it. I am hoping some of the members might be able to help. I would be happy to pay for them although a copy or a loan of them would be appreciated.

As you can see from the date of my last post in these columns, I'm no longer very active in the world of ship modelling and a bit too long in the tooth to carry on. As a result I'm in possession of quite a few unwanted books about this subject;...

Just bought a small model of the Golden Hind to restart the hobby after 30 years. First effort was a pretty complex model and didn't go too well. Thought just because I worked on expensive violins I could build a boat. Not! Very nice to have this...

I have read a few articles about planking, some say bulwarks down, others keel up. Kind of confusing as this is my 1st P O B model. I'd also like to see some detailed pics or drawings but haven't found any good ones. I guess what I'm trying to say...
