Re: British Town Class Cruisers
The book has just been delivered: my first impressions are that it is superb and thanks to the author and those to whom Conrad acknowledges, viz. members of this board (you know who you are)for bringing the project to fruition.
Maybe, just maybe, the 'Countys' will get the same treatment. Hint Conrad?
Perhaps one day, HMS Sheffield, she of the most battle honours, will be released as a 1/350 IMP model.
I recently purchased and received a copy of British Town Class Cruisers - Design, Development & performance - Southampton & Belfast Classes, by Conrad Waters and published by Seaforth. While I am not qualified or sufficiently knowledgeable to comment on the accuracy of this publication, I must say that I am very impressed with the quality and number of images and line drawings. I purchased it at a price of £22.53 including postage and strongly believe that this is excellent value for money.
There is a very well written appendix on camouflage and appearance with seven page of colour artwork, each with two images.
