Description: Philip Reed, best known for his superb models of ships from the age of sail, here turns his attention to the other highly popular subject for ship modellers - the warships of the Second World War. The book is a step-by-step manual for building a scratch waterline model of the Ca Class destroyer HMS Caesar, the sistership of Cavalier now on display in drydock at Chatham Historical Dockyard. These emergency built ships were launched between 1943 and 1945 and Caesar herself was to see action in 1944 on the Russian convoys and then in defence of the Western Approaches. The model presented in the book is built to the scale of 16ft to the inch and is designed to be displayed as a waterline model in a diorama. Every aspect is covered from the construction of a bread and butter hull through to the the details of camouflage, bridge, funnel, mast, the 4.5in, Hazemeyer and Oerlikon guns, boats, davits, depth charge gear, torpedo tubes, searchlights, vents and lockers,and the sea itself. Ship s plans and a picture gallery at the end of the book devoted to a whole array of the author s WWII model warships complete the book. More than fifty years modelling experience is passed on through wise and practical advice and this each page will be of the utmost value to scratch builders and to any kit builders who may be setting out to build a model of a WWII warship.
