Dr Mike who scored 500 out of 500 points at the world championships some years back published a DVD. Since the the original videos have shown up on YouTube. 114 in total running for about 30 minutes each. From the expert to the novice these are well worth watching. Dr Mike is Russian and did have a friend doing interpretation for the videos for some time during the process. The main thing is his techniques he uses.

About the first 6 or so YouTube videos, bits and pieces made up the DVD that he sold. After that it ia unpublished material.

Here is the link to an index of those videos. Enjoy.

That is an excellent set of videos! I really should have double checked the the plans for my current build. Live and learn. The ancient Romans built aqueducts with not much more than a length of string, a trough of water and a plumb bob. Heck, I've even done dirt work with a "story pole". Simple techniques are usually the best, and probably pretty close to how these ships were built in the first place. Thanks for the link!

I actually downloaded the MP4s using a program called Yummy and then converted them into DVD format using Nero, so I could watch them on TV.

This is a translation of the front page text:
School sudomodelistov . Master classes by Michael Bezverhny .

World Modeley114 videos64,646 viewsLast updated on 29 Mar 2016

This collection of Michael Bezverhny master conducts a master class for guests of the Australian continent ( Antonio Ramos and Ivan Kramar ) .
The film reflects the work from the start, working with drawings , models Bookmarks to manufacturing spars .


I assume the first two words should be "Modelling School" or "School of Model(s)/(ling)"

There is 57 hours(if my math serves me wrong) of videos, sure beats the hell out of commercial TV.

Its an excellent series of videos, but its unedited and a little long winded, so you need to fast forward it in places, but the technical content is superb.

I totally agree with Brian.

I have watched every minute of the videos. There is probably not a video and I think there was 114 of them that run for about 30 minutes each. Even though it is scratch building and experienced modeler and a novice like myself, anyone who watches them will get something out of each of the videos.
