Overview
 
Bismarck and Tirpitz. ShipCraft Modelling 10. Steve Backer. Seaforth Publishing. In-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. This book examines 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. With its unparalleled level of visual information - color profiles, paint schemes and camouflage, detailed line drawings, scale plans and photographs - this is simply the best reference for any model maker setting out to build one of these famous vessels. Includes modeling section reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of available kits, lists commercial accessory sets for super-detailing of the ships, and provides hints on modifications and improvements plus research references. Lavishly illustrated; 64 pages.
