Scale Model Warships
Edited by John Bowen

A warship model - whether aircraft carrier, ironclad or submarine - presents special problems to the aspiring model maker. The hull form or superstructure is complex; the details of the guns, radar and electronic gear are difficult to obtain, and more difficult to represent; and there is usually a myriad of boats and deck fittings. Furthermore the lack of reliable reference is not the least difficulty facing the beginner and less-experienced.

Scale Model Warships, however, tackles these problems in a thorough but straightforward manner, moving from sources of information, through the construction of hull, deck and superstructure, to gun mountings and deck fittings. A chapter by an expert warship modeller covers each of these general topics, followed by sections specifically concerning miniature models, power-plant and radio control, and plastic kits, concluding with a detailed bibliography.

Over 120 plans and diagrams, and 150 photos - carefully chosen for their reference value - completes a book that will prove invaluable to anyone modelling twentieth century warships.
