Synopsis: The ‘ShipCraft’ series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeler through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring color profiles and highly detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modeling 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 survey 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. The subject of this volume is the seven-ship New Orleans class, probably the US Navy’s most hard-fought heavy cruisers of the War – three were sunk in action but others survived massive damage, and by 1945 three out of four of the navy’s most decorated ships were of this class. Although designed within treaty limitations, they proved powerful and well-balanced ships, and their unparalleled fighting record makes them popular modeling subjects.

Review: ...well written and the text is supported by good sharp photos and illustrations. If your interest is World War II warships or ship modeling, these two books should be in your library (ShipCraft 12: Essex Class Carriers ) (Power Ships, The Magazine of Engine Powered Vessels from the Steamship Historical Society of America Fall2015)
