About the Author James Lees: This book marked the culmination for Jim Lees of fifteen years dedication to the subject

About the Author James Lees: This book marked the culmination for Jim Lees of fifteen years dedication to the subject. Born in 1924 Mr. Lees had seatime around the world with destroyers in the Royal Navy and in tankers with the Merchant Navy before joining the National Maritime Museum. The author himself wrote of the genesis of his book As the rigging of contemporary models deteriorated over the years and so few untouched models were still in existence, I felt that a book covering the various changes in rigging was a necessity to prevent the historical data from disappearing.

for people struggling with the rigging plans of the Heller HMS Victory model ship ( they are the worst in existence), this tome is another tool in unraveling correct rigging for those who demand accuracy in their models.

When completed, the Heller Victory is a glorious looking ship, however, getting there is not fun, as there are numerous problems including bad fit of various hull components and the already mentioned butchered rigging instructions.

If you can get your hand on the rigging plans for the Mamoli version ( wood model ) of the Victory, this will also serve to clear up a lot of the rigging conundrums, but meanwhile, this particular book should be invaluable , again, to the modeler that wants complicated looking rigging on his project.

Somewhat specialized subject but when you are interested in this kind of "stuff" it is indeed a great book! Had wanted it for some time and this was a great price so now part of my library.

This book is the definitive one for rigging model ships of this period - great diagrams support a very easy to understand text that explains virtually every rope in the ship.

The author also explains the changes made over two centuries of ship building, with further diagrams illustrating those changes.

A "Must Have" for any serious ship modeller of this period of British Warships.

The service from Amazon was exceptional - this is the second time I have bought a book through them, the first over the Christmas break and this one during Easter. Both times the book arrived within 12 days - one from UK, the other from USA ... both shipped to Australia. You can't ask for better than that!

This is indeed the bible of ship masting and rigging. Any ship modeler should have a copy in their library.

the reading is fine, the pictures are great, but i believe its for more wooden ships than plastic. a lot of the picks still can be used will doing rigging if your patient.

Exactly what you expect.

this book is just what I was looking for. Anyone building period model ships will love this. Lots of history and details.
This is it.

I have now read through twice and although it is not necessarily your average bed side read I never find my copy to far away. The detail that can be modeled because of this book is outstanding, not to mention the history printed on every page. If you have an interest in tall ships, or ship modeling this is a must have book.
