Les Brown; ShipCraft Series. Provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeler through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sisterships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring color profiles and highly-detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modeling 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 survey 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 new volume deals with the classes which represent the whole inter-war development of  British destroyers, from the prototypes Amazon  and Ambuscade of 1926 – the first new post World War I design – to the powerful and radically different ‘Tribal’ class a decade later. These ships formed the backbone of Royal Navy destroyer flotillas in the Second World War. Illustrated with 130 black/white photographs; 64 pages.
