Synopsis: -- Presents a behind-the-scenes look at the scale-model ship design and construction for the Emmy-winning A&E series Horatio Hornblower-- Illustrated with more than 100 color and black-and-white photos of the models, on-set production shots, and original draft plansFor A&E's dramatization of C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower, producers lavishly funded astounding re-creations of the epic battles scenes. In Hornblower's Ships, Martin Saville interweaves the history of Nelsonic-era shipbuilding with his account of the research, planning, and construction stages of the eleven specially commissioned, fully working, scale models of Forester's famed vessels. The book also includes an invaluable reference section detailing the ship types, full specifications, historical precedents, the fictional role of the series' vessels, and scale plans of the vessels that will delight both nautical enthusiasts and model builders.
