    The museum ship

    The original

    In 1939 the HMS Belfast, the then largest light cruiser of the Royal Navy, was put into service. The Belfast took active part to the Second World War and the Korean War. In 1965 the Belfast was decommissioned and in 1971 it was converted to a museum ship. Nowadays it is part of the Imperial War Museum anchored at the Times in London.
    The Belfast is 187 m long and 19,3 m wide. Up to 850 men were doing their service aboard the Belfast. The light cruiser was capable, with its 80.000 HP, of a top speed of up to 32 Knots. 

    The Belfast was equipped with cannons and torpedoes. 

    Nowadays the museum ship is also used as very special scenery for concerts and other cultural events.

    The model

    The Graupner Premium Line model of the HMS Belfast comes as Almost Ready to Run(ARTR) version.
    The Belfast was reproduced on the original plans. It identifies itself through its high details precision and the particular high quality materials. The hull is made of glass fiber reinforced plastic and for this reason it is ligh and however stable. The structures are made of laser-cut ABS parts and they are very precise. Many details and small parts are made of metal. The hull, the structures and the cranes are spray-painted with mat colors and grant a particular realism. The safety boats are painted with many colors.
