Queen Elizabeth Class Battleships by les Brown

The ‘ShipCraft’ series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring colour profiles and highly detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modelling 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 volume covers the five ships of the highly successful Queen Elizabeth class, a design of fast battleship that set the benchmark for the last generation of dreadnoughts. Although they fought with distinction in WW1, all were thought valuable enough to be modernised between the wars - indeed, three were massively reconstructed, providing the modelmaker with a challenging variety of possible subjects.

The two German ships which form the subject of this volume were among the first products of rearmament under Hitler. For political reasons they were neither as large nor as well armed as foreign equivalents, but they were very fast, which led them to be described as ‘battlecruisers’ in some quarters. They enjoyed an adventurous war, both surviving heavy damage, before Scharnhorst was sunk in an epic gun battle off the North Cape, while Gneisenau succumbed to heavy air attack.

Type VII U-Boats by Roger Chesneau: The ‘Ship Craft’ series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, using scale plans to highlight differences between sisterships and changes in their appearance over their careers, then moves to an extensive photographic survey of either a high-quality model or a surviving example of the ship.

The strengths and weaknesses of available kits of the ships are reviewed, and the book concludes with a section on research references - books, monographs, large-scale plans and relevant websites.
This volume is devoted to the largest class of submarines ever built, the Type VII, which formed the backbone of the German effort in the critical Battle of the Atlantic. A pre-war design, the Type VII was developed as the campaign progressed and was still in frontline service in 1945. All the major variants, as well as minor changes to equipement, are covered here. With its unparalleled level of visual information , paint schemes, models, line drawings and photographs, it is simply the best reference for any modelmaker setting out to build one of these famous boats

This volume covers the British 10,000-ton ‘Treaty Cruisers’, thirteen of which were built to three slightly varying designs between the wars. With three funnels and a high freeboard, they were impressive ships, and all enjoyed very active wartime careers - three were involved in the Bismarck action and another with the sinking of the Scharnhorst.

Apart from Titanic herself, this volume also covers her sister ships Olympic and Britannic which enjoyed longer and more varied careers, including wartime service as troopship and hospital ship.

The strengths and weaknesses of available kits of the ships are reviewed, and the book concludes with a section on research references - books, plans and relevant websites.


This volume is devoted to the largest, fastest and most powerful heavy cruisers of their era. Japanese striving for superiority in individual ships produced designs whose unusual lines, massive superstructure and heavy armament have made them a challenge to modelmakers ever since. Combined with a fighting record stretching from the first to the very last days of the war, this makes them one of the most popular of all subjects for warship modelling.

This book will show ship modellers how to turn their kits into something really special, but its unparalleled level of visual information will also appeal to the general warship enthusiast.

Allied Torpedo Boats by J Lambert & Les Brown

The ShipCraft series provides modetlers with all they need to know about a famous class or type of warship and associated model kits. This ‘Special’ has twice the extent of the standard volumes in order to give better coverage to the many torpedo boat designs used by the coastal forces of the Royal and US Navies.

The book concentrates on the types used in the greatest numbers Vosper ‘short’ MTBs in the RN and Elco PT Boats in the USN and their principal variants but there is coverage of designs by other builders, like Thornycroft and White in the UK and Higgins in the USA, and a few of the more interesting experimental craft are also illustrated. However, it is confined to torpedo boats, and the weapons and equipment they carried, the related motor gunboats being excluded for reason of space.

Nevertheless, with its large number of detailed plans and photographs of boats, fittings, weapons and equipment, this book offers an unparalleled level of visual information on its chosen subject, including paint schemes and museum-standard models reproduced in full colour. For any modelmaker setting out to build one of these famous ‘little ships’, it is simply the best reference available.

The subject of this volume is the seven-ship New Orleans class, probably the US Navy’s most hard-fought heavy cruisers of the War – three were sunk in action but others survived massive damage, and by 1945 three out of four of the navy’s most decorated ships were of this class. Although designed within treaty limitations, they proved powerful and well-balanced ships, and their unparalleled fighting record makes them popular modelling subjects.

The subject of this volume is the largest and most sophisticated German cruiser class of WW2. The five ships suffered very different fates. Blucher was sunk during the invasion of Norway in 1940, whereas Admiral Hipper fought right through the war. The most famous, Prinz Eugen, escaped when Bismarck was sunk and survived to be expended in a postwar Atomic bomb test. Seydlitz was intended to be converted to an aircraft carrier, but never finished, while Lutzow was sold to Russia and sunk by her erstwhile owners.
