A few years ago, with no relevant training or experience whatsoever - except that of paying attention to detail, I built a scale model of the Thermopylae followed by a much larger version of Cook’s HMS Endeavour. The results compared favourably to models built by those who style themselves ‘advanced modellers’ and show off their efforts on the internet. As a result of that experience I have reviewed a small number of books which explain rigging and planking techniques - if only because I have a modest understanding of the subject.

This excellent work, however, is a book about the Sailing Frigate told through those historic models which are still in existence and, just as soon as I opened the book, I was unable to put it down. The underlying history of this particular genre of vessel is based on the scale models held by the National Maritime Museum - and what a collection it is too! Only now do I see the difference between the laudable efforts of the amateur and the precision provided by the various shipbuilders of the day who produced these scaled down versions of the larger size vessels they were using in a bid to sell their ships to the Royal Navy and beyond.

May I say, as a professional shipwreck historian, I was previously unaware of Frigates which were also equipped for rowing in addition to the normal complement of sail. A truly outstanding model - showing all 36 oars deployed, appears on the front cover and is fully explained on p.99. That, however, is just one example of many different models.

The book makes an excellent job of explaining the life of the Sailing Frigate.

Die in diesem Buch gezeigten Schiffsmodelle sind ja bekanntermaßen modellbautechnisch mit das Beste, was es gibt. Historisch genau und eine gut Quelle für den Modellbauer.

HASH(0x9ceb0fcc) von 5 Sternen A work which teaches much about Sailing Frigates and even more about ship models. 27. Januar 2013
Von Ned Middleton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
A few years ago, with no relevant training or experience whatsoever - except that of paying attention to detail, I built a scale model of the Thermopylae followed by a much larger version of Cook's HMS Endeavour. The results compared favourably to models built by those who style themselves `advanced modellers' and show off their efforts on the internet. As a result of that experience I have reviewed a small number of books which explain rigging and planking techniques - if only because I have a modest understanding of the subject.

This excellent work, however, is a book about the Sailing Frigate told through those historic models which are still in existence and, just as soon as I opened the book, I was unable to put it down. The underlying history of this particular genre of vessel is based on the scale models held by the National Maritime Museum - and what a collection it is too! Only now do I see the difference between the laudable efforts of the amateur and the precision provided by the various shipbuilders of the day who produced these scaled down versions of the larger size vessels they were using in a bid to sell their ships to the Royal Navy and beyond.

May I say, as a professional shipwreck historian, I was previously unaware of Frigates which were also equipped for rowing in addition to the normal complement of sail. A truly outstanding model - showing all 36 oars deployed, appears on the front cover and is fully explained on p.99. That, however, is just one example of many different models.

The book makes an excellent job of explaining the life of the Sailing Frigate. With Chapters entitled; Prehistory 1600-1689, Guerre de Course 1689-1713, The Establishment Era 1706-1748, The `True Frigate' 1748-1778, The Heavy Frigate 1778-1815 and The Last Generation 1815-1850, we find a complete history of the Frigate told through the only accurate representation of this genus of warship still in existence - the builders models of the time. Not even ship portraits by the most celebrated painters of the day could possibly compete with the detail found in these three-dimensional forms.

With anything from a single image reproduced across two pages to four images on a single page, this richly illustrated work shows every type of Frigate from the first designs through to the final hybrids which were powered by both sail and steam - and deftly reports the evolution and eventual demise of the Sailing Frigate as it does so. Some of the models were deliberately finished in an incomplete state - so as to explain various `below deck' and, therefore, out of sight features in addition to assisting the shipwrights charged with building the full size vessel. Throughout the book, at one end of the scale we find models which are in various stages of incompletion, without planking and without masts and rigging. At the other end, we find the most extravagant examples of fully rigged vessels with fine moulding over the stern in models so well made that some are even shown ready for launching on their own model ramp...

This is a book from which the reader will learn much about the Sailing Frigate because the subject is placed so expertly under the microscope, and even more about the topic of model ships because they are as equally well reproduced and, therefore, perfectly represented. Add to all that the simple fact that the entire product is packed with fascinating information and put together in the most readable of styles and it only remains for me to congratulate both author and publisher for such an excellent job of work.

HASH(0x9cf773c0) von 5 Sternen Excellent reference book 22. Februar 2013
Von Dr. Ian Tizard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Robert Gardiner has written several excellent books on the sailing frigates of the Royal Navy. This one is in effect, an annotated catalogue of the frigate models in the National Maritime museum. It explains through the beautiful photographs, the evolution of this ship type. It is an important contribution to the literature on this topic, mainly because it illustrates many models that have not been examined closely and which the NMM has not chosen to place on public display. I see it as a useful ship modeling resource, a source of ideas on potential new models, and a well illustrated text. I highly recommend it and look forward to other books in this series. The author has indicated that he plans to produce several more books of this type, each focusing on a different type of sailing warship. I recommend it strongly.

HASH(0x9ceb38a0) von 5 Sternen Cover to cover color pictures of Admiralty models 14. Januar 2014
Von Walter P. Sinnott III - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a professional model maker, aerospace (unfortunately), but whose true love the past 45 years has always been man-o-war models. Curiously enough, the more spacecraft I build the more fascinated I become with the technology of the wooden walls. Perhaps this is a counter-balancing mechanism. At any rate this interest in wooden warships has filled my library with many wonderful books by the most credible naval design authorities. Frequently the books in my collection featured images of the beautiful Admiralty style models. Sadly, the majority of the pictures were black and white. None the less, being such as I am, those photos further wetted my appetite for yet more data which could be of use in building an Admiralty model. Thanks to Amazon's habit of recommending products I was informed of the existence of this book. Based on other's recommendations this book purchased. Much to my surprise it is filled from cover to cover with COLOR photographs of Admiralty models. Surprisingly, considering the scope of my library, this book also contained data of which I was unaware. My congratulations and heartfelt thanks to the author for creating this delightful collection of imagery. Should one be have an interest in Admiralty models or the desire to build one I highly recommend this book. I feel it was money well spent. A word of caution: My copy was delivered at my workplace. I began thumbing through it during a meeting with some Nasa folks present. The unexpectedly gorgeous pictures elicited many uncontrollable sounds of model maker ecstasy from myself. The females present did not appreciate the vocalizations. Nor were they capable of grasping how one could be so enchanted with photos of two-hundred year old wooden models. So, the lesson is, do not review this book in mixed company. Once again, hats off to the author for sharing his collection of color images with us.

HASH(0x9cf77420) von 5 Sternen Beautiful pictures but not much else. 29. Mai 2013
Von Mike Owens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The book is well put together and has as my title indicates beautiful pictures. The books narrative needs a lot of work as details could be a lot better. Would I recommend this book for someone who loves beautiful sailing ship model pictures, its a definite plus, but for someone looking for history I recommend passing it up for something else.
