The latest book From SeaWatchBooks is BUILDING A NAVY BOARD MODEL OF HMS SUSSEX 1693. The text, photos, drawings and plans set are by Dr. Gilbert (Gib) McArdle. Gib, who has specialized in Navy Board models, has taken the lines from the magnificent contemporary model of HMS Sussex in the US Naval Academy Museum and created a world class model of his own.

Gib shares his view of the history of the times and then takes you through the step by step building of the model. He has also shared his plans which are reproduced in seventeen sheets housed in a specially designed pocket in the back of the book. As an extra bonus, frame plans in ⅛ scale are provided along with the scale drawings.
