Shipcraft #15
Queen Elizabeth
Class Battleships
by Les Brown

reviewed by Timothy Dike

The latest Shipcraft book is out and this one covers the Queen Elizabeth class battleships. Written by Les Brown, it includes some great info for modelers wanting to build a scale replica of one of these famous ships. Like the other books in the series, it includes prototype info and history on the ships. 

The modelers section features kit reviews of the various kits on the market and even the aftermarket upgrades. If your unsure of which kit to start with and what your aftermarket options are, this section will be a big help. 

A modelers gallery features some of the best examples of built ups to inspire you to build your own. There are a number of color profiles and drawings that show the ships of the class at various times over their careers and illustrate the weapons and fittings they carried. 


This is a great book for modelers and historians alike. It is nice to see the QE class covered in this series. This book will come in handy for building your own version.
