1/6000 Naval – 1905 British Scout Cruisers

These are eight scout cruisers completed in 1905 and modeled in 1/6000 scale.

From Conway’s All the World’s Fighting Ships 1860-1905, pages 84-85:

“These eight cruisers were intended to work in company with destroyers as scouts, to lead torpedo attacks and to back up their flotillas when attacked by enemy destroyers. The Admiralty provided a broad specification …. for a 25kt ship, with a 1-1/2 inch protective deck or equivalent side armour, shallow draught … 10-12pdr, 8-3pdr and 2TT. …[This] resulted in four sub-classes … that varied substantially in form, machinery and structure. … During 1911/12 they were rearmed with 9-4in guns.”
