The Aircraft Carrier HMS Invincible
This is another in Kagero’s series of books that focus on one particular ship, in this case the HMS Invincible. The book consists of one column of text about the ship that is like what you would read on a kit’s instruction sheet and 28 pages of line drawings of just about every aspect of the ship from the island down to the various aircraft that served aboard and the individual defense weapons systems.
The drawings vary in scale depending on what they are covering, the main island view being in a smaller scale (1/200) than the views of the defensive weapons (1/100 and 1/50) for example. Also included are two separate back printed 27” X 18” sheets. Three sides of these are line drawings of the entire ship in 1/350 scale and one side is a full color three view print of the ship. All drawings are very precise and clear and show great attention to detail. However, no source for the information used to make the drawings is listed so accuracy would not be determined without comparing the drawings to the actual ship.
If you are doing a model of the Invincible these drawings could be very useful in making any necessary corrections and/or adding any additional detail.
Thanks for IPMS/USA for allowing me to review this book and to Casemate Publications for supplying the copy to review.
