REVIEWS
-

"As well as the history of the vessel and table f technical details, this new book in the Super Drawings series from Kagero gives the now standard series of views of all the many details of the hull, the armament and oter equipment fitted to th Emden, coveing it all from bow to stern.  These excellent computer generated images are excellent, and provide an excellent reference for modellers who might be making the Revell 1/350 kit of this ship.  These fill the first 61 pages of this soft cover book.  The final section of 16 pages will look odd at first glance, but these are 3D images that need to be viewed through the red and green lenses of the viewer that is also included within the book.  I have to say that these are among the most effective of these 3D images I can remember seeing, and they really do look quite amazing when seen through the special viewer.  Kagero have made a very good job of these."
