Overview
 
ShipCraft Modelling 3; Roger Chesneau. In-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. The subject of this volume is the Yorktown class, the near-legendary American aircraft carriers that kept the Japanese at bay in the dark days between Pearl Harbor and the decisive battle of Midway, where Yorktown herself was lost. Hornet launched the famous Doolittle Raid on Japan before being sunk at Santa Cruz in October 1942, but Enterprise survived the fierce fighting of the early war years to become the US Navy's most decorated ship. 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.
