SMA's venerable collection ship modeling tips and tricks, Ship Modelers' Handy Hints, is now available in the Research Room. The articles are stored individually for easy downloading, and all have "SMHH" in their titles. The article "SMHH A0 Table of Contents" contains the entire list of available articles. You can use the names of articles in this list to search for individual articles in the Research Room. For example, the first article in the Table of Contents, "Anchor Carving" which appeared on page A1 of the original collection can be found in the article "Anchor Carving SMHH A1" in the Research Room.
