Tin toys had been made in Japan before the Second World War, but they reached new heights of realism in the 1950s. The postwar American occupation of Japan gave Japanese toymakers ready access to the lucrative American toy market, and as a result most of the tin toy cars made in this period were based on American vehicles like Cadillacs, Chevrolets, Buicks, Oldsmobiles and Packards. Like the real things, these tin toys were big. A small one would be around eight inches long, with some of the largest stretching to eighteen inches. As such, tinplate was the ideal medium to capture the look of American styling of the 1950s, a period when size mattered, and car manufacturers tried to outdo each other with the extravagance of their designs, the size of their tailfins and the amount of chrome. During this era of consumerism, Japanese toy production was at its peak, with exotically-named manufacturers like Marusan, Bandai, Yonezawa and Alps turning out vast quantities of tin toys. It proved to be a short-lived phase in the history of toy production. By the early 1960s, tin toys were falling out of fashion for various reasons: their sharp edges gave rise to safety concerns; die-cast models were becoming increasingly realistic and sophisticated, with many action features that appealed to children; the development of plastics in the toy industry made tin toys look increasingly old-fashioned. Half a century later, there are very few surviving examples of these magnificent playthings. Bruce Sterling of New York has devoted years to seeking out the very best examples of Japanese tinplate cars and has built up what is probably the world's finest collection of these toys, every one of them in pristine condition, complete with their original boxes which are works of art in themselves.This book showcases 150 examples of the very rarest Japanese tin toy cars, many of them never having been pictured in books or magazines until now. Almost every major American motor manufacturer is represented here, together with a selection of commercial vehicles and a significant number of European cars, too. All are illustrated in full colour and described in detail, and fascinating insights are provided into both the real vehicles and the companies that modelled them, together with a guide to rarity and current values. This is a book that will be treasured, not only by specialist collectors, but by all who are passionate about vintage toys and classic vehicles.

Ships in Scale magazine called our best-selling manual for the first-time kit-builder, Ship Modeling Simplified, a Bible for the novice modeler. Model Ship Builder said the only problem with this book is that it should have come out years ago. Now comes the next logical step, a book on building ship models without kits, form Edwin Leaf, past president and resident guru of the prestigious Philadephia Ship Model Society. Following the proven format of Ship Modeling Simplified, here is the first complete, step-by-step course in building model ships from scratch--everything from schooners and clipper ships to modern ocean-going freighters and steel warships. This book covers in detail everything the first-time scratch-builder needs to know: choosing the right subject, building from plans, drawing scaled plans from photographs, and buying tools and materials. It also covers building half models, planked hulls, lapstrake hulls, plank-on-frame, plank-on-bulkhead, lift models, modern ships, ancient ships, masting and rigging, sails and flags. Sources and an illustrated glossary are included.
John Bowen brings his knowledge and expertise of waterline ship modelling to a second volume of miniature merchant ships, including examples such as Haverford (1901), Carpathia (1903), Oronsay (1925) and Braemar Castle (1952). The book opens with a section giving advice on initial preparations - finding and using plans, suitable materials and tools. This section also presents an alphabetical list of the principal fittings on a ship (those that would be included on this type of model) - hatches, winches, capstans, anchors, etc - with details and diagrams on how to make them. Section II comprises 30 sets of plans of ships built between 1900 and 1969. These are accompanied with at least one photograph of the ship, a full specification, brief history, and notes on essential constructional details, including colour scheme. Readers will recognise the authoritative yet approachable style John has brought to several ship modelling titles, which will appeal to both beginners and more experienced modellers. A companion volume to the highly successful Miniature Merchant Ships, More Miniature Merchant Ships includes 30 1/1200 scale plans of liners, cargo ships and passenger cargo ships, each supplied with comprehensive modelling notes. More than 60 photographs of the prototype ships underway supply detailed pictorial references. This book, like Miniature Merchant Ships, is an essential addition to the library of any ship modeller.John Bowen is the author of several acclaimed titles for Conway Maritime Press, including Miniature Merchant Ships, published in 1997. Building waterline models has always been his favourite form of modelling and this book is a culmination of his continuing achievements inthis area of ship modelling. John was deputy editor of Conway's quarterly journal Model Shipwright when it was launched in 1972 and has been its editor since 1974. He contributes a plan and instructions for a miniature merchant ship to each issue. John is a member of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects.

This book provides all the answers. With over 430 line drawings and photographs, plus over 250 pages of detailed instruction, this is a comprehensive reference book for all model engineers. The author covers all matters ranging from setting up a workshop and the use of various machines and tools to processes such as knurling, reaming, milling in the lathe, screw threads, soldering and brazing, dividing as well as regular and more specialised workshop techniques.
The international Footy class boats are twelve inches long, free-sailed or raced by remote control, and they're quickly attracting a growing number of fans. Presto, and the boats created by naval architect Flavio Faloci add "handsome and engaging" as well as competitive, to the class.
Flavio has used a combination of design factors to produce a race winner. Not a simple task, given Presto is a "cruising" boat built in layers (bread-and-butter fashion) from balsa wood. Whether you build Presto or use the concepts to create your own Footy, Flavio will open up a whole new world of boatbuilding and sailing, on a very manageable scale.
Book includes plans (in reduced form) background information as well as a progression of building photos.
