This fantastic book includes detailed drawings of the many different designs of British MTBs and US PT-boats, including their fittings, sensors and weapons. With a large number of detailed plans and photographs this book offers an unparalleled level of visual information on its chosen subject.
Lavishly illustrated, the book takes the modeller through a brief history of the 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 gallery 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.
