The Battleship USS Massachusetts (Super Drawings in 3D) Reviews
This is one book in the Kagero series in which I have explored the ship written about and pictured. The USS Massachusetts is berthed in Fall River, Mass. along with a USN submarine and a destroyer. The book's "Massachusetts" does not show the many layers of paint on certain parts of the battleship, nor the gum wrappers and other trash that shamefully collects in corners and in accessible turrets. It's fun to see what the battleship actually looked like, as observing it from the deck is difficult.
Excellent book for anyone interested in the South Dakota class WW2 Battleships. The illustrations are unbelievable and show a level detail that make you think you are walking the decks and seeing the ship as it was in 1945. I am planning on building a model of the Big Mamie and this will be an excellent resource. This was my first 3D publication and I will be buying more..
Great new book. If you like detailed 3D illustrations of historic ships like "Big Mamie", this is the book for you.
A good companion piece to the 1/350 scale model ship from Trumpeter. The detail is amazing and the drawings are even better than photographs would be.
Incredibly superb illustrations! A must for the battleship enthusiast.
My husband, really likes the book.
I'm not that interested in modeling warships. If you are into modeling the drawings and schematics in this book is a must.
I bought the book for the Battleship Missouri not this one, but the same author. The illustrations are not photographs but incredibly detailed drawings by a very very skilled artist. These drawings give much more in depth detail than any photo can give. Every minute detail from stem to stern, from topmost radar mast to the weather deck is given. However there are no interior drawings. I was hoping for details of the inside of the massive gun turrets, but no such luck. That is not a criticism but merely telling the reader what the book is about. Again, I have the Missouri book and not this one, but I am sure they are quite similar
