War at Sea in the Ironclad Age
Here's the latest reading material, which I've read before but is still worth a re-visit, especially as I'm currently tinkering about with the 1/2400th scale Rugen project. This is a good general overview of the development of ironclad warships, in all their multivarious forms, and includes some excellent illustrations, maps and diagrams.
On a related note, I've decided to add a second gunboat force to the Prussians, consisting of two first class gunboats and four 2nd class gunboats, to represent the third gunboat division operating from it's base in Swinemunde. I really like the Tumbling Dice gunboat models and, at £2.40 for three of them, there's a minimal hit to the wallet.
