British Destroyers A1 and Tribal Classes
64 page book.
Provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated this book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, then moves to an extensive photographic survey of either a high-quality model or a surviving example of the ship. Section on paint schemes and camouflage, featuring numerous colour profiles and highly-detailed line drawings. 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. Brown; 64 pages.
