I just got the newest addition to the Warship Pictorial series of books by Classic Warship Publications.
The newest book is 72 pages and covers the Gato Type Fleet Submarines, which includes the Gato SS-212, Balao SS-285 and Tench SS-417 class
This book is full of good quality photographs that will please the model builders and enthusiast alike. I found some photos in the book that I have never seen before (I have been doing research on this type of sub for over 20 years) most notably of the torpedo tube shutter doors fore and aft in both the open and closed position.
I highly recommend anyone who is building one of the new Revell 1:72 scale Gato's or any other Fleet Boat model, get this book before it goes out of print.
This book is available form Classic Warships at www.classicwarships.com or your local hobby shop/book seller.
