HMS Belfast IWM
The ship was designed on a scale of 1:300 and faithfully reproduces the details of its historical model. The light cruiser is 64 cm long and 19.5 cm high. It has many moving elements such as deck guns, rotating artillery turrets, rudders and propellers. The model was covered with high-quality prints imitating equipment and camouflage. Prints do not rub off even with intensive use. The set includes a black stand and a white plate with the model's name and scale printed on it. The plaque also features the IMW (Imperial War Museums) logo.
HMS Belfast is a World War II light cruiser of the British Royal Navy. It entered service on August 5, 1939. At the end of November of the same year, she was withdrawn from service for three years as a result of damage by a German mine. From 1942 she covered arctic convoys. On December 26, 1943, together with the cruisers HMS Norfolk and HMS Sheffield, she repelled the attacks of the German battleship Scharnhorst, which was trying to break through to an Allied convoy. Scharnhorst's encirclement contributed to his subsequent sinking. HMS Belfast also took part in the attack on the German battleship Tirpitz. From June 1944 a general renovation took place. In August 1945 she entered Sydney Harbour, where she found the end of the Pacific War. In the years 1945-1962 she served intermittently for repairs in the Far East and took part in the Korean War, among other things. In 1966 it was intended as a residential colony. In 1971 it was threatened with scrapping.
