Opis produktu:

The 'ShipCraft' series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring colour profiles and highly-detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modelling section reviews the strengths and weaknesses of available kits, lists commercial accessory sets for super-detailing of the ships, and provides hints on modifying and improving the basic kit. This is followed by an extensive photographic gallery of selected high-quality models in a variety of scales, and the book concludes with a section on research references - books, monographs, large-scale plans and relevant websites. This volume covers the famous German sister-ships whose fates were so very different - Bismarck had a short but glorious career, first sinking HMS Hood and then in turn being sunk by the Home Fleet, whereas the Tirpitz spent most of the war skulking in Norwegian fjords, fending off attacks by midget submarines and carrier aircraft before being finally sunk by enormous specially designed bombs dropped by RAF Lancasters.

 

Nothing new is presented both on the history - less than 1/4 of the book and to the differences between the two ships - and on the building of kitsets for the remaining 3/4. Lovely colour photos of builds in various scales with little information on how they actually got there. These can also be found on the net - in this volume thet are brought together which is nice - you don't have to search for them yourself. Maybe I was expecting more. I have the majority of reference books on both ships with more and better quality photos, so this book added very little to what I already have. Money better spent on some of the actual reference books would be advised. Book is OK but not spectacular for its value - hence the average rating of two AND a half.
