NA 113N Goliath
New 1/1250 scale waterline model of the British battleship Goliath by Navis (NA 113N) as in 1908. This reflects the ship after addition of fire control and radio gear.
One of six Canopus class pre-dreadnought battleships of the Royal Navy which were designed by Sir William White for use in the Far East and entered service between 1899 and 1902. The lead ship was HMS Albion. She was followed by Canopus, Glory, Goliath, Ocean, and Vengeance.
Commissioned in 1900, Goliath served in the Far East on the China Station until 1905, at which time she joined the Mediterranean Fleet. In 1906, she was attached to the Channel Fleet. Having been mothballed prior to the outbreak of the First World War, she was returned to full commission.
Goliath took part in operations against German East Africa, participating in the blockade of the German light cruiser Königsberg in the Rufiji River. From March 1915, she was part of the Dardanelles Campaign, and remained in support of the landings at Gallipoli in April. On 13 May 1915 she was sunk in Morto Bay off Cape Helles by two torpedoes from the Turkish torpedo boat destroyer Muâvenet-i Millîye, which was manned by a combined German and Turkish crew, drowning 570 of her 700 crew members.
