How many die hard Iowa class fans are going to be willing to pay X amount for the book? I have Burt's books on battleships (3 of them) . $50 plus per book. But, they cover a wide range of warships, not just one. I like having them, more than I actually use them.
Keep in mind. I'm a cheap model builder, Fixed income, limited space, so I'm selective in what I spend money on. Resources on the subject or model kits?
