Reseña del editor

Nelson's history has been written from every possible angle, but this is not so with his ships. Such information as there is about the ships is buried in contemporary books on naval architecture; only the expert can sift it and present it in a usable form. In doing this, Dr. Longridge's 1955 work quickly became a veritable treasure trove for the naval historian and ship modeler. H.M.S. Victory is the supreme example of the ships of the period, and fortunately she is still in existence. The original draughts of 1765 have been preserved, as have also the drawings used in the restoration of the ship in 1922. The author was thus able to compile from authentic sources and his model of the Victory now occupies a prominent position in the Science Museum at South Kensington. The illustrations are a unique feature. They include a set of photographs showing the interior construction of H.M.S. Victory and H.M.S. Implacable, the latter being taken only a few days before she was scuttled. The book features over 180 line drawings, designed by E. Bowness, A.R.I.N.A., and executed by G.F. Campbell, Assoc. M.R.I.N.A., ranging from elaborate perspective drawings of the complex gear at the fore top and crosstrees to the simplest detail. The folding plates by G.F. Campbell (which measure 560 x 400 mm and 235 x 450 mm) include lines, inboard and outboard profile, deck plans of the hull, standing and running rigging plans, and a complete belaying pin plan. Such an analysis of the ship of this period had never before been attempted.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A timeless bible of building a display model of HMS Victory! 10 de junio de 1996
Por Un cliente - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
HMS Victory (104 guns), now preserved in dry-dock at Portsmouth in England embodies the might of the man-of-war at the zenith of the age of sail. The vessel was Admiral Lord Nelson's flagship at the battle of Trafalgar. Mr C Nepean Longridge's masterpiece of a book describes the process by which his model of this famous vessel was built. The book is unique; Longridge follows full-scale practice virtually to the smallest detail. This makes his work essential to the accomplished ship-modeller and the novice alike. For the former, there are the detailed references to complete the ultimate ship model project - clearly explained and amply illustrated. As for the latter, here is a book that will inspire and which will be a fountain of suggestions for improving building techniques applicable to all vessels of the era. For example, there are more than 183 figure drawings from variations of 'scarph' joints to methods of belaying lines. Additionally there are 12 plans and 76 photographs. This is the bible, with illustrations, for building all classes of naval ship give or take a gun-port or two

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas THE Manual on Building a Model of HMS Victory 17 de enero de 2000
Por Kevin WS - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa dura
Despite its title, which may mislead some, this classic book actually deals at length with building a model of H.M.S. Victory. Written by Nepean Longridge in the 1930's - it's value can be judged by the fact that it remains as valid today as it did then.
The book describes in detail the full process of building the model which now resides in the Science Museum in London.
Construction details of the model are given and discussed at length, as well details of the full size vessel. This is backed up by photos of the real vessel, and numerous detailed drawings and diagrams, some of which are in a "pull out" format. Every detail of the ship is covered, from fittings through to construction - both of the model and the real thing.
All this means that if your going a build a model of H.M.S. Victory, then you MUST ensure that you have a copy of this book on your bookshelf. You will need no other!
And, even if you are not building the Victory, still consider purchasing this book. For the ship modeller it is of considerable interest and will serve as a valuable reference for years to come, while for those interested in Period Ships the plans and detail drawings will be a delight.

This is the one, right here, don't go any further. Even if you're not a modeler, get this book. If you are a modeler, you better have this book. Whatever your story, get this book.
I am fortunate to have the ship modeling bug, and love the challenge of the wooden ship model. It's my hope to build a HMS Victory. Now that I have this book in hand, have no fear, I will enter the Modeling Zone once again.
What a fabulous book. Like one of the other reviewers discussed, I get lost in this book and come up for air 3 hours later. The author discusses everything there is to discuss on the ship. There are great pictures, and the fold out plans, WOW. This is the way to reveal the inner workings of a ship. There are a large number of drawings as well as a few groups of photos to suppliment the text. Don't misunderstand, the text stands by itself, and the drawings/photos are a bonus.
One thing that amazes me to great wonder is how did the author acquire all the knowledge that he then relates in the book? It seems that he must have built the ship himself!!
A remarkable accomplishment this book. If you like sailing, ships, woodworking, history, or other related areas of study, you'll enjoy this book. The early 19th Century sailing vessel never received such a grand treatment. Now, where's Admiral Nelson??

WOW! That was the first thing I said after opening Amazon's box containing this book. The book is a substantial size, nice and thick and the binding quality is excellent. What a masterpiece. The numerous amounts of fold-outs are excellent, full of great info on the Victory. There are a number of glossy pages with lots of pictures of the original and the model HMS Victory. The figure list is very usefull as are all the other lists to make finding your way around very quick and easy. The other reviewers have accurately depicted the content; I felt that the rest needed recognition. If you are at all like me and don't mind spending the money you will understand this next statement. Buy two, one to keep safe in your bookshelf and one to wear out during its extensive use. BUY IT you will for sure enjoy all 283 pages. Michael

If you are passionate about modeling ships, or merely an afficianado of ships of a bygone era, this is the grandaddy of reference books.
First published in 1950, and written before the modern kits and tools available today, it surely slakes the thirst for knowledge that those of us that love the tall ships.
Yes, it mainly visits the HMS Victory, but its' detail were the primary reference for McKay's 'Anatomy of the ship - the 100 gun ship Victory', owning first editions of both now, one could never give them away.
If you are like me, you will spend countless hours lost in this book.
It starts with the basics of how a ship is built from the keel up, with many photos and diagrams of how to lay a keel, frames, planking and decking, not so much a modelers reference, but an explanation why. It goes upward to the best detail I have ever seen of masts and yards, enlarged enough to see how to scratch build them.
It has numerous photos, drawings, and pull out diagrams of every aspect of the Victory, but it is standard reference for the tall ship.
I would not say if this is the only book you ever buy on ships, buy this, it is not that type of coffee table book. It is one for those who appreciate the knowledge and the craft, and to proudly put amongst your collection, and never give away.
