The Shangri-La Ironworks is a new line of resin 1/1200 scale naval miniatures. In the months to come, you will find a selection of unique and for the most part overlooked vessels from the 1914-1945 era.
Kits are cast in white resin with main turrets, cranes and some superstructure parts cast separately.

SL-5 USN 1934 Fast BB Project USS Minnesota

The USS Minnesota is a Fast BB proposed in 1934 with 9-14″ rifles in three triple turrets and 12-5″ guns in twin turrets. She was designed for 30kts at 35000 tons with excellent protection comparable to the later fast BBs (13″ belt, 4.5″-5″ on the decks).
A sketch can be found in Norman Friedman’s book “US Battleships : An Illustrated Design History” on page 234.
The model includes 1.1″ and 20mm guns for a model circa 1942.

SL-20 USS Seattle 1942 ( Rebuilt ACR)……………………………$18.00


This is a “what if” build of the proposed update to the 10″ gunned armored cruiser. In the 1920′s it was proposed to install oil burning boilers (new speed 26-28kts) and reconfigure the armament. This model takes it one step further with the remaining casemate 6″ guns replaced by twin 6″ turrets.

The Orca is based upon a 1920 design for a 20,000 ton sub cruiser using five separate pressure hulls and steam power. The sketch design can be found in Friedman’s “US Submarine Designs to 1945″ on page 172

SL-25  Cerons  P21 French patrouilleur auxiliaire 1940……………………………..$10.00

The Cerons was involved in a heroic duel with German artillery during the evacuation at Dunkirk 12 June 1940. She was stranded by the receding tide and subsequently sunk. She had three sister ships, one of which (Leoville) escaped to the UK and served with the FNFL. They had 4-3.9″ guns, two 37mm AA, MGs and depth charges. Quite a lot of firepower for a hull just over 200′ long!

SL-27     USCG Cutter Triton  1942 (Argo Class cutter)………………….$6.00  **NEW**

SL-29   U.P.-41 Italian Battleship (Never built. 9-16″ Guns)…………………..$33.00

SL-30 USS Reprisal (1942)……………………………………………………………………$25.00

This is a projected 1942 version of one of the many “Battle Scout” designs considered around the end of WW1.  She would have weighed in at 28000 tons and carried eight 10″ guns. The original twelve 6″ guns are shown as replaced by the same number of 5″/25 Dual Purpose guns.

More about this design can be found at http://www.history.navy.mil/photos/images/s-file/s584084c.htm

SL-37 Aspromonte  Italian Tank Landing Craft……..$8.00

This last one is interesting as she was used to transport the 60 ton PzVI Tiger tanks to Tunisia late 1942. She was lost doing this job December 1942 when RN destroyers attacked the convoy she was in.

SL-50   US Destroyer Leader 1928 Scheme 7……………………….$10.00

Friedman’s Destroyer Design history discusses this concept briefly but no drawing has emerged. This is my  take on US 1928 Destroyer leader design, Scheme 7. She is 2900 tons, four-6″, four 5″/25 and 12 TT and over 400′ long. At 36kts, she would have been a close competitor of the Le Fantasque class and the Yubari.
