A Navy man's paradise
Shortly after the Doolittle Raid, FDR declared to inquisitive reporters that the planes used in the raid had been launched from "Shangri-La". Towards the end of the war, in a comic nod to that statement, the U.S. Navy broke from their naming traditions to dub this carrier USS Shangri-La. Shangri-La served as an active-duty carrier for three decades, earning two battle stars for WWII and three for Vietnam. This kit features a model of the carrier based on Renwal® Blueprint models. It includes aircraft and Regulus missiles.
