Review by

The most detailed examination of a single ship I've ever seen. Hundreds of great scaled plans and drawings including the ship's inner framework and structure, boilers and machinery, crew accommodations, superstructure, masts and rigging, boats, armament, and fittings. Amateur naval architects will spend hours pouring over it.
