Part of the "ShipCraft" series that provides information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. This illustrated book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, and then moves to a photographic survey of either a high-quality model or a surviving example of the ship.
This is the sixth volume in the ShipCraft series of books covering the history and the modelling of a famous class of warship. The subject of this volume is the Second World War German Navy's fast attack motor torpedo boat, called the Schnellboot, but more commonly known in the English speaking world as the 'E-Boat'. This vessel was considered to be one of the most effective of its type during the entire conflict, and feared by all who encountered it. The S-Boats went through a very noticeable evolution as the war progressed, finishing up as a weapons platform that extensively examined by the victorious Allied forces post-war. Some nations continued the use of captures S-Boats for years following the end of the war. This book will be an extensive reference tool, invaluable to the modeller, useful to the historian, and inspiring to the newcomer. Historic photographs, extensive plan sets, colour illustrations, model galleries, and model availability information, make this book a 'Must Have' to those interested in the 'Kriegsnarine Schnellboote'.
