    From the publisher: The battleship USS Alabama is one of the very few “big ones” that saw service in World War II and survive to this day as museum ships.  
A recipient of nine Battle Stars for her wartime service, Alabama was a South Dakota class warship, widely considered to be the best US Navy treaty battleship design, featuring heavy armor, good underwater protection, tight superstructure arrangement and formidable armament.  The ship was built at Norfolk Navy Yard in Portsmouth, Virginia. She was laid down on February 1, 1940 and launched on February 16, 1942 sponsored by Henrietta McCormick Hill, wife of the senior U.S. Senator from Alabama J. Lister Hill.


Topdrawings No 24 The Battlecruiser HMS Hood
This 32 page title has detailed scale plans of the Missouri, 31 drawings sheets in A4,  color profiles, 2 double B2 sheet with drawings sheets and colour schemes, scales 1:50 1:100, 1:200.  
From the publisher:  Hood, launched in 1918 was the last battlecruiser built in Great Britain. She was named in honor of Admiral Samuel Hood and was to be the first of the Admiral- class battlecruisers, but further three vessels were never completed. During the construction the design had to be extensively modified to embody the experience of the Battle of Jutland, which markedly exposed insufficient armor of British battlecruisers. However not all shortcomings were eliminated, which later contributed to the loss of the ship. The Treaty of Washington of 1922 significantly limited both the number and size of heavy vessels built by world’s greatest naval powers of the time. Due to this until the end of the inter-war period the Hood was the world’s largest warship and by many was considered to be the best ship ever built. She fascinated not only with the size, but also with her firepower, thus she quickly won the nickname “Mighty Hood”. In the 1920s and 30s she made many training cruises in the seas of the whole world, being an advertisement of Royal Navy, proving its might.

Topdrawings No 25 The Sd.Kfz 161 Panzer IV Ausf H/J
This 40 page title has detailed scale plans of this WWII German AFV,  5 double B2 sheets in 1:16th scale and 18 colour profiles.  From the publisher:  
 In June 1943 the production of Pz.Kpfw. IV Ausf. H began in order to increase the armour piercing capabilities of its main armament. Although the new model received the modified 75-mm KwK43 L/48 tank gun, the Ausf. H was still sharing many components with the previous version. This Panzer IV version first saw combat in the summer of 1943 during the German retreat on the Eastern front. The tank proved to be quite complicated and labour-consuming in production which led to simplifying its design. As a result, the less complex Ausf. J model was introduced into production in June 1944.

Topdrawings 26 Focke Wulf 190D
This 32 page title has detailed scale plans of the Fw 190 D - 19 drawings sheets in A4,  color profiles, 5 double B2 sheet with drawings sheets and 11 colour schemes, scales 1:100, 1:200, 1:250 From the publisher:  
The Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D, better known to its contemporaries as the Langnasen Dora (Long-nose Dora), was the finest project created by Kurt Tank’s design team to see service in numbers. It duly capitalized on all their previous experience in building high-performance fighters. The D-9, the aircraft’s most popular variant, was first flown on 7th September 1944. Soon it made its presence felt both on the western and eastern fronts. A total of some 700 machines (sources vary) were assembled in Focke-Wulf plant at Cottbus, as well as by Arado and Fieseler contractors, by the end of the war. The D-9 powered by Jumo 213A-1 engine was practically the only variant to see serial production. The later D-11, D-12 and D-13 variants, powered by Jumo 213F-1 engines, were approved for production in March 1945, and only a few were delivered. D-12’s armament was one engine-mounted 30-mm MK 108 cannon and two 20-mm MG 151s in the wing roots. The D-13 differed from the D-12 by having a 20 mm engine-mounted MG 151 cannon in place of the 30 mm MK 108 unit. If only handled with skill, the Dora was a formidable opponent, capable of outrunning and outmanoeuvring any allied fighter it was pitted against.
