It is aimed at both beginner and amateur modelmakers. The projects include: a Trafalgar ship; Gloucester schooners and other American craft; Alabama III; steamers and paddle steamers; a "C" class destroyer; famous flagships (Drake's "Golden Hind" and Columbus's "Santa Maria"); new and old sailing trawlers; and barges. The book also contains instructions on how to put ships in bottles.
