Another e-Book for all the Period Ship Modellers out there.
Fair Winds & God Speed.
Michiel Adrianszoon De Ruyter
The Royal Navy armed and fitted out thousands of wooden warships between 1600 and 1815, and virtually every item or process was the subject of alteration or improvement during this period. For the first time, in this book the precise details of these developments are set out, wherever possible with exact information on sizes and scalings based on reliable contemporary sources. This makes the book an indispensable guide to all historical ship modellers, but it also provides a wider analysis of technological development which will be of great value to maritime historians and industrial archaeologists. This book charts the developments, wherever possible based on reliable contemporary sources.
