Overview
-

The Imperial Naval Staff demanded the development of a destroyer project with owerful weaponry and capable of reaching speed of 40 knots. The project was approved and marked with the symbol "F52", it was included in the financial plan of 1939 "Maru Yon". According to the project, the armament was to consist of three two-barrel 127 mm gun turrets, and two seven-tube torpedo launchers. Due to the heavy weight of the tubes and the inability of emergency manual control of the launchers, this idea was abandoned. In connection with this, a project was prepared and the construction of the Japanese destroyer with the number 125later nam, ed "Shimakaze" commenced.

REVIEWS

The author is to be commended for the detail incorporated in the images, with everything from deck cross-hatchings to torpedo launcher grab handles and ship's rigging displayed clearly {…} providing yet more detail that should satisfy even the most ardent scratch-builder.

A very useful reference not just for plastic modellers, but perhaps also for those who might want to take on the challenge of building one that can be fitted with motors, remote control and used on your local boating pond.
Military Model Scene

This is another superb book in the series and a great addition to any maritime modeller's library. This series is a boon to any ship modeller and is turning into a magnificent collection of titles. The detail included is second to none, and the renderings are so clear that they will be a delight for the superdetailers, particularly if building the beautiful Hasegawa or Fujimi 1:350 scale kits or the Tamiya and Pit Road kits in 1:700.

'' it sounds impressive…, in my opinion, Mariusz Motyka did a great job of adding all 3d plans together into one book. Now you can get an excellent reference publication for quite reasonable price. Moreover, it covers all possible areas, so you can detail your model inside and outside.''

Any of these would be a perfect gift for a model maker, so complete is the coverage of each subject's visual appearance.
