When America entered World War Two the armed forces needed tools to teach soldiers, sailors and airmen how to recognize friendly and enemy ships. The solution was found in recognition models. Produced by a few small manufacturers these models formed a key component in training programs during the war and became sought-after collectables in the post-war years. The first book devoted to the story of the wartime recogntiion models, Ship Models for the Military covers all of the major producers tracing their origins and the role each company played in the wartime model program. The well-known 1:500 Teacher models and the 1:1200 miniature models are covered in depth along with the mostly forgotten 1:600 scale models. Over 100 illustrations showing models and training materials are included. Collectors will find the comprehensive listings of models produced, set compositions and auction pricing data of great value.
