The Emile Bertin was France's first post-World War I light cruiser design. Named for the French naval architect, she formed the basis for later light and heavy cruiser designs. She was armed with 9 6-inch guns in three triple turrets (a first for the French Navy). She was designed as a minelaying cruiser and was also intended as a destroyer flotilla leader. Emile Bertin survived WW2 and was rebuilt in the Philadelphia Navy Yard during the war. Postwar, she served as a training ship until scrapped in the 1950's.

IHP's model of this ship faithfully reproduces her in every detail from the superstructure to the Gordou-Leseurre seaplane. The kit is 100% metal and is easy to build and comes complete with instructions.
