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.

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.

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

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.

  3. Can you do the ‘what if’ 1940 Dutch battlecruiser design in 1/1200?

    • Hi Glenn,
      I’ll consider it. Alnavco did one and it should be due for re-release. I try to stay away from Never Were models that they do

      I am almost done with a conjecture of another large cruiser project the Dutch had, a very heavy cruiser with 9-9.2″ guns . Have not decided on molding it yet but I am open to it.
