This shipmodeller's step-by-step manual describes the building of an eighteenth-century man-of-war. The author describes all the stages of building by employing a display of over 400 photographs, each one depicting a stage in the construction of a man-of-war. During the fifteen months in which the model, the 74-gun ship-of-the-line "Majestic", was built he photographed every aspect of the task before distilling those hundreds of photographs into a sequence of 400, each with a detailed caption, which takes the reader from the initial drawing out of the plan to the final rigging and display. The aim was to cover every aspect so that the photographs can be easily followed by novice and expert alike.
