Computers are a closed book to many of the older generations of model engineers, despite the fact that more than one-third of all British households now have a personal computer. By taking one step at a time, the computer can soon be tamed and turned into a versatile drawing tool with many advantages over traditional draughting methods.
Derek Brown’s demonstrations and lectures on the subject at various model engineering exhibitions over the past few years have proved very popular. In this book he seeks to strip away the mystique surrounding the subject by avoiding jargon and providing pr... View More...

Photo etching in the form of electronic equipment printed circuit boards will be familiar to all modellers. This book covers the less familiar application by model engineers of those same techniques to the design of high-quality graphics and precision production of metal parts for all aspects of model making.

Tubal Cain has achieved an international reputation both as a writer and modelmaker, but it is known less generally that in his previous career he was not only an engine designer of some note but also a teacher of engineering drawing. In this book he has amalgamated that experience with an appreciation of the difficulties often felt by model engineers when reading or making workshop drawings. He explains not only the ‘rules’ but also the reasons why they are important and, acting on the principle that one sketch is worth a thousand words, illustrates his points wherever possible.
