Wow, this looks great! I love the old British Conway Maritime (Naval Institute Press in the U.S.) 'Anatomy of the Ship' series books - is Osprey taking this over, or is this just a reuse of the name? The engineering and technical drawings in the new Bismarck book look to be the familiar AOTS style, but the addition of the 3D renderings adds a whole new dimension! Thanks for posting the review, Frederick.

Picked a copy of this up at Scalemodel World. It combines the old style AOTS book with the information in the 3D and top drawings books.

Some very nice photographs I have not seen before.


Very good research tool all in one volume.

Cheers
