British Destroyers : A-I and Tribal Classes, Paperback

British Destroyers : A-I and Tribal Classes Paperback

Part of the ShipCraft series


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, then moves to an extensive photographic survey of either a high-quality model or a surviving example of the ship.

Hints on building the model, and on modifying and improving the basic kit, are followed by a section on paint schemes and camouflage, featuring numerous colour profiles and highly-detailed line drawings.

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 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.
