Description

Model (scale 1:48). A new type of cruiser intended for scouting duties was introduced in 1904. These vesels, of les than 3000 tons displacement and very lightly armed, were soon succeeded by clases of much larger 'light' cruisers. The 'Glasgow' and four other cruisers of the same clas were launched in 1909. They were 453 ft long and had 4800 tons displacement. They were armed with two 6-inch guns, ten 4-inch guns and two torpedo tubes. The 'Glasgow' took part in the Battle of the Falkland Islands in 1914 and the destruction of the German cruiser 'Dresden' in the Pacific in 1915.
