Book review: ‘HMS Beagle: Survey Ship Extraordinary’ by Karl Heinz Marquardt

Meticulously detailed ship's plans of HMS Beagle, for anyone thinking of making a model or replica!

HMS BeagleOK, this one is really only essential reading for Darwin completists, model-making nerds, and anyone hoping to make a working replica of HMS Beagle. But it's a fantastic book!

Marquardt's research is meticulous and his detailed ship's plans are phenomenal. It's a real labour of love.

But, like I said, you need to be a real Darwin completist to buy it.

Which is why I did!
