Scout: 12" World Globe
The Scout world globe is a real bargain. Its twelve-inch diameter globe that, at first glance, looks exactly like the globe of the Navigator described above, but it has a little less detail. The shaded relief has a little less contrast and there is a smaller number of named places and points of interest. For many people and for younger students this is still an excellent world globe. The Scout saves money with a less elegant base and meridian. The Navigator (above) has a cherry-stained base and a cast metal meridian with raised-print latitude markings. The Scout (left) has a base and scaled meridian made with strong, high quality black plastic. The price difference is significant but the general appearance and function are similar. Twelve inches in diameter, about eighteen inches high, non-illuminated, made of a high quality fiberboard, a great value.
