After many requests for plans for model boats based on Selway Fisher
Designs, particularly motor and steam launches, I have written this manual
which starts by taking an over-view of wood model boat building.
The various different methods and materials used are discussed followed by
a look at the potential problems associated with simply scaling down
directly from a full-size boat.
This is followed by five chapters giving drawings and details for the
construction of model boats, some based on full-size Selway Fisher
Designs. Included are a series of four carpet models aimed at young
children to use with their toy cars, a stitch and tape model of the
Christine open canoe, a half model of the Swallow Tancook Whaler yacht
and two Balsa wood models one of the Power225 motor cruiser and the
other of the 4m Mini Yacht.
