Bismarck (Paperback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new version by new supplier.


This exciting series provides ship modellers and naval enthusiasts with an entirely new form of visual reference in the form of computer-generated three-dimensional imagery of unrivalled detail and photographic accuracy, created by the leading exponent of the art in the warship field. For modelmakers all conventional forms of reference have drawbacks: three-view line plans are difficult to interpret and omit many fine details; photographs show only a single angle, are rarely close-up enough, and usually in monochrome or unreliable in colour-balance. This radically new series overcomes these problems by harnessing the latest computer technology to create three-dimensional full-colour models of famous warships, complete in every detail and based on the most thorough and extensive research. Every fitting is reproduced in three-view and perspective form, so there are no 'hidden' areas or black holes in the coverage. The first in the series is devoted to the famous German battleship Bismarck, whose short but glorious career ended with her sinking in May 1941.

For ship modellers these books offer a new order of reference, but the unparalleled level of visual information will also appeal to the more general warship enthusiast.
