ShipCraft Special: Allied Torpedo Boats Hardback
Part of the ShipCraft series
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 follows the format of the highly successful Flower Class where the extent has been doubled to include far more detailed drawings of the many different designs of British MTBs and US PT-boats, including their fittings, sensors and weapons.JOHN LAMBERT is a well-known draughtsman who provides detailed plans for modelmakers.
He has also written widely on naval subjects, mostly small warships.
His collaborator in this volume is LES BROWN, a lifelong modelmaker and a leading light in the Small Ships Group of the International Plastic Modellers Society.
