The recent publication by this Society, of Skip Models: How to Build Them, written by Charles G. Davis, a naval architect of unusual practical experience in the building of ships and also ship models, at once resulted in a demand for additional information on this fascinating subject. Not content with building a block model, a greater knowledge of ships developed a desire for information on the framing of the "built-up" model. Ship model builders in all parts of the country required details on the deck furniture of various types of vessels at different periods and also on the thousand and one things that the ship builder and rigger must know in order to practice his craft.
