Half-Model building

Does anyone have suggested resources for learning how to build half-models? How to read building plans, tools needed, how to build...

Maybe this will help get things going for you:

I know boat building schools like woodenboat offer courses in half hull building. Doing it yourself will probably require a lot of reading and research. Seems like quite a beautiful hobby, good luck.

Your local public library may have books on the topic. They probably have their collection listed online, so you won't have to go unless they have something worth checking out. Howard Chapelle calls the book "American Ship Models and how to build them" by V.R. Grimwood (Bonanza Books, New York, 1942) "...the best in the field of ship modeling". You're likely to find something more modern.

What are you thinking of building?

Wish ya good luck, you seem to have about as much an idea about building a boat as me. For your sake I hope you plan to start small, and test it on a shallow lake.
Looking forward to reading the update on your progress.

Your pleasure is my business !!!
