I WILL TRY TO NOTE ANY THAT I SEE, BUT OTHERS MAY EXIST. PLEASE LOOK AT THE PHOTOS. Light Cruiser in 1/1250 scale. This is a model of the American Light Cruiser of World War Two, the USS MARBLEHEAD (CL-12). The MARBLEHEAD was of the OMAHA class Scout Cruisers which were the first cruiser class built post World War 1 and was completed in 1924. This class of ten Cruisers served in mainly secondary theaters during the war from Pearl Harbor, Aleutians, South Pacific to European waters. None were sunk in action during the war, and only two suffered major damages. Most were scrapped within seven months of the end of the war. This model is of MARBLEHEAD circa 1945. She was 556 feet long, 55 feet wide and of 7,050 tons displacement, and was capable of speeds up to 35 knots. MARBLEHEAD was originally armed with twelve 6 guns and four 3 guns and six- 21 torpedo tubes. Their AA armament was increased with 20mm and 40mm guns during the war while the casemated 6 guns were reduced. MARBLEHEAD had a crew of 360 seamen and officers.
