HMS Belfast
1:186 scale, Town Class (Edinburgh group) Royal Navy light cruiser, Pennant number C35.
About this creation
Constructed to the same 1:186 scale as my King George V class battleship ( or 'KGV'), The HMS Belfast measures in at exactly 1 meter (stern flagstaff excluded).

Now the largest preserved warship in the British Isles, the Belfast participated in Arctic convoy escort, leading to her involvement in the sinking of the Kreigsmarine's Battlecruiser Scharnhorst, fired the opening shells in the D-Day landing operations at Normandy and took part in the Korean war, providing fire support to allied forces.

She in now maintained as a museum ship on the River Thames in London, dominating the waters around Tower Bridge.





The ship's Supermarine Walrus floatplane (borrowed from my KGV after her refit)



Armed with a main battery of 12 BL 6 inch MK XXIII guns in triple turrets, the Belfast, like most 'Light' cruisers of the time compensated for reduction in caliber size through numbers. At 11,553 tons, she was a CL in title only.

Partly because of this posting, I find that you seem to be an expert at building historically accurate ships and I think that you would be a true source of inspiration and a valuable giver of advice to future shipbuilders, so I have taken the liberty to invite you to my new group “Ship Builders guide”.

Thanks for your comment on my latest moc. Weird that I haven´t seen any of your mocs before. Wonderful moc, great use of the "plate technique", stunning level of detail. The model looks great on the stand.

Thanks, it would be nice to get a head start by learning how to use this techniue. Also Im more interested in the cool shapes of wwii subs. I never liked the tube like shapes of later subs.

Quoting Dreadnought o_o That hull looks perfect. I need to learn how to build hulls like that. I want to build a U boat in that style. Is it to much to ask of you to hold off on a future U boat, It kindof my biggest dream in the whole wide world. I would pass up a million for the chance to be the first one to build a fancy U boat.
Actually, I did have plans to build a sub with this method, but a 1960s Oberon class. It's a pretty simple technique and looks a lot better when combined with smooth plates. I've been working on a project I'm calling 'shipyard', which may help if I ever get round to doing more work on it. If you like I'll post a pic of a hull cross section to clarify structure I've used for this moc and the KGV.

An interesting design of the hull, superior to others on MOCpages, I believe. I like the cannon design, as well as the smaller deck guns along the port and starboard sides. A job well done.
