A book that explains various tools
and techniques necessary for successfully building models with brass, now in its second edition with a new chapter on shipbuilding. Whether
substituting for an existing plastic model kit part or assembly, making a
master pattern for casting, or creating a complete scratch-built model,
the range of brass fabrication methods and tools used are explained.
Readers are exposed to techniques for cutting, forming,
fabricating, soldering, and final finishing of commercially available
brass stock. Specific chapters focus on the use of various processes and chemicals to assist readers in the creation of very
detailed brass models. World master model builder Ken Foran has created a
book that modelers of all skill levels will find to be an absorbing and
valuable resource for successfully building with brass.
