The nostalgia for the great passenger ships of the first half of this century is vividly recalled in this book on the world famous model-making firm of Bassett-Lowke, with their production af small scale waterline ship models manufactured between 1908 and 1950. Also recorded is the incredible range of warships of all nations produced between 1938 and 1952 for The Royal Navy and RAF for recognition and training purposes.
Colour Photographs of these 100 feet - 1 inch and 50 feet - 1 inch models illustrate over 500 ships from small cross-channel vessels to the ocean giants, from destroyers to battleships and aircraft carriers.
Many of these are from the author's own superb collection which is so comprehensive that it is acknowledged to be one of the finest.
The book with its informative text and over 200 illustrations will be of great appeal to all collectors and those interested in the maritime history of this century in miniature.
