Foresters Hornblower stories is the most expensive drama made specifically for television. A high proportion of the $20,000,000 spent on the production has gone into the lavish special effects used to recreate the epic sea battles featuring a fleet of eleven specially-commissioned fully-working scale models of such famous fictitious vessels including the frigate Indefatigable (a full-scale sailing replica of which has been used in the filming of on-board deck scenes), Hornblowers first ship the Justinian and the Baltic trader Julia.Hornblowers Ships and Their Models tells the story behind the creation of these models by author and professional modelmaker Martin Saville. It is a story that spans from Petrozavodsk, Russia, where the models were built, to the huge tank at the legendary Pinewood film studios in London.

Whether youre an enthusiast of naval fiction, or an aspiring model maker, Hornblowers Ships and Their Models is an ideal complement to your nautical library.
