Flower Class
« on: October 03, 2019, 01:57:44 PM »

Trying to find out if there is an 'Anatomy of the Ship
for Flower Class Corvettes.
Our club has members with up to ten of these
between them now and there is much rivalry.
Everything from rivets to boats are hotly dicussed
A definitive guide is needed to cool the arguments :police:

That book is very good but it is about a Canadian built Flower which has some differences in small parts like the ship's wheel mount to British built ships.
The other book on the Flower Class I would recomend is the Shipcraft one by Brown and Lambert as this covers all ships in the class(except for the 3 built in France by the Germans).

Never trust an expert with a book....now, an expert with three or more books, that's the sort of person to listen to!!

Most, if not all, of John Lambert's drawings from the Military Modelling articles are in the Seaforth book I refered to previously.
