By A Customer on Dec 27 2003
Format: Hardcover
For an introduction to 1/1200 scale modeling do not buy Ainsworth's WARSHIPS IN MINIATURE. His how-to chapter on construction techniques is weak as it is short. Bulk of book is sub-chapters on 40 different warships. Unfortunately for the modeler, plans are crude and most of the text a superficial gloss of ships' design and service histories. Modeling notes for each ship are brief and very few are of real use or interest.

thought it would describe techniques, methods, tips on waterline model building. It has a few pages on this, no pages on techniques to model realistic water to similate ships underway. The rest of the book just describes the history of particular warships. I could have bought a book on battleships if I wanted that. ... Save your money on this one.

HASH(0xa3f9c978) out of 5 stars Guide to 1/1200 construction in plastic, with interesting histories July 31 2007
By axed engineer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book includes chapters on tools and construction techniques, as well as many useful plans and brief ship histories written in an interesting way. The emphasis is on plastic hull construction, which those currently using wood will find useful. The book assumes some model building experience, and so does not go into great detail on techniques. The several plans are adequate for 1/1200 and perhaps for up to 1/700 when provided or scaled up.
1/1200 ships are in general not placed on bases.
