ShipCraft Modelling 8; Lester Abbey. In-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. This book is dedicated to the Fletcher class, often considered the most successful of all American destroyers. Built to the first design that was freed from treaty restrictions, they came into service near the beginning of the Pacific War and fought with distinction through all the most ferocious of the campaigns against Japan. They were constructed in large numbers, with a number of variations, and their popularity is reflected by the wide range of available kits. 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. Illustrated with 130 b/w and color photos; 64 pages.
