Kagero Super Drawings in 3D

The story of the Graf Spee is a well known one particularly her demise at the end of her stay in Montevideo, with the British squadron waiting for her, she was scuttled instead of going up against what the Germans thought was a much superior force.

This book is in the form of Kageros 3D format with the first nine pages dedicated to the history of construction, armour protection, powerplant, individual weapons systems and operational history of this famous ship. The rest of the book is filled with highly detailed 3D renderings of every part of ship, the decks, superstructure, fittings, boats and weapons. All the drawings are supremely well done and will be an absolute goldmine of information for the locations of the many different bits of smaller equipment not normally shown in side drawings or plans, such as all the rigging wires and there attachments. The addition of a pull out double sided sheet, with line drawings of the ships boats, rangefinders, catapult, torpedo tubes, secondary and tertiary weapon, plus numerous smaller items on one side in 1:200 scale, and full three views, plus fore and aft views in 1:350 scale on the reverse is a very useful resource for the modeller.

Conclusion
This is another great and very useful book from Kagero. It will certainly be really useful to the modeller, although it must be noted that the colour scheme shown in the colour views was only used for a month or two as the ship was re-painted several times in the last six months to her life.
