|In the Winter 2000/20001 issue of Model Ship Journal|
|In case you haven't picked up your copy yet, here is a
look inside the latest issue of Model Ship Journal, and a sample of some
of the articles included.
On the cover is a close-up shot of Don Preul's amazing USS Gearing in 1/192 scale as she appeared in 1945. There are more pictures inside, with information on the ship and the model. This is part one of a three part series that will cover two other later versions of the Gearing class, a 1952 USS Whiltsie and a 1968 FRAM'ed USS Epperson. This alone makes this issue worth the cover price. I am fast becoming a fan of Don Preul and have found his detailed large scale ships an invaluable aid to building their small scale counterparts.
|Magnifiers for Ship Modelers:
I model mainly in 1/700 scale found the article on Optics helpful. As we get older the eyesight diminishes and some of the magnification devices pictured here should help you prolong your modeling career.

|Building Minicrafts Titanic Part 1:
Titanic lovers take heart Loren Perry shows us how to turn a plain vanilla 1/350 scale Titanic into a masterpiece. This multi part article will cover the entire process in detail. The close-up photo's are great, but they are all taken after completion,. I hope the other parts will show the building "in process".
