SL67 Italian Destroyer “Spalato “ ………….$7.00 Kit/$14.00 Complete

SL-67 PTD Spalato 1

New model of the “almost was” Italian Destroyer “Spalato.” She was the captured unfinished Yugoslavian destroyer “Split” and the Italians planned an armament of 5-5.3” guns, three 21” torpedo tubes and a bevy of 37mm Breda AA guns. She was not finished but recaptured and finished with US supplied armaments after the war.

Drawing of the planned Italian version are very scarce and, until 2016, all showed a ship that looked a lot like the post war version. A set of original drawings emerged in 2016 showing a top view of a ship that resembled a large version of the smaller Beograd class. This model is based on this drawing.

This model is dedicated to my good friend Stefano Sappino. Your friendship was a treasure, dear colleague. You will be missed.

SL-66 US 1910 Battlecruiser USS Alliance (updated to 1942)…………..Kit $20/ complete $35

This  is a conjecture of a what if, this being one of the proposed 1910 US battlecruiser designs after a modernization in the 1930’s and now in 1942 rig. Mention of the design(but no drawing) is found in Norman Friedman’s “US Cruisers: A Design History, page 62.

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.

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.

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.

SL-50   US Destroyer Leader 1928 Scheme 7……………………….$8.00/$14.00

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.

  1. Wonderful work!! I am searching for model of the US Auk-class minesweeper, in any small scale. Do you have any suggestions?
    Thank You, Steve Bellofatto, S2bello@att.net

  2. Is there a possibility of getting a WW2 version of the SL-28 (US 110′ Subchaser (1918) WW1 version with 3″/23) as they were configured in 1942 with a 40mm Bofors replacing the 3″ gun forward and 3 20mm guns aft in 1/1200?

    • Hi Kent,
      I have been thinking of this one along with a number of small YP patrol types. Let me check the master.
