Warships and Warship Modelling is a book which wil appeal equally to naval enthusiasts and ship modellers. It offers an overview of the dseign, development and classivication of modern warship types and its studies the constructors original models, explaning why and how to research and select information on specific ships and how to find and understand plans.
The book then turns to scale modelling with detailed chapters on choosing a subject, a scale, methods of construction (scratch or kit?), materials and thechniques and the details of fittings and painting. The book leaves the reader with a deeper insight into the direct relationship between the full sized vessel and the realistic scale model or working model.
The book is illustrated by over 300 of the authors' superb photographs, many of which have never been published before.

Dieses Buch zeigt hervorragenden RC-Modellbau mit wirklich guten Bildern und Zeichnungen. Der Bildteil zeigt von Originalfotos über Modelle bis hin zu den Detailfotos wirklich einmalige Bilder. Die Baustufenfotos werden immer im vergleich mit dem Originalfotos gezeigt und es sind auch gute Tips zu finden wie man diese Perfektion erreicht. Einzigster nachteil wenn man es so nennen mag ist die Englische Sprache.........
Daher das Urteil:
