Has anybody bought and read this book?

I found it by mistake last night looking for another book..

It was released earlier this year(May2005)
here is what it said:


Submarines have a unique fascination. What makes them so special - in the original as well as in the model - is the breadth of technology that is required for a vessel to dive and, above all, to return safely to the surface.

In this book Carsten Heintze covers:

* A comprehensive collection of submarines
* Models and their associated originals from all periods of underwater travel
* Submarines for civilian use
* Various types of military submarines
* Model making using a wide range of construction techniques
* Diverse diving technology, from the simple model that dives dynamically to high-tech submarines with complicated diving systems

So why don't you take a dive into this book and discover an undersea world of new ideas and information for your next model submarine?

Please let me know.. I'm about to buy this book along with "Simply submarines"

Yes, i have the book.

It's a very nice publication, and should be on any model submariners bookshelf.

Packed with all kinds of models from the Brandtaucher and Fultons Nautilus to the Typhoon and Holland 1.

Please note, the book is not in the same mould as other model submarine publications. It outlines the boats rather than give exhaustive information on the construction of the vessels.
