Airfix 1:600 HMS Belfast was created by Jason
I picked this up at Toyworld when they had a sale a few months back. First ship so straight out of the box.

Let's get started. Sorry no detailed sprue shots but I can say that there is a lot of flash on them.

Look forward to watching this as I may never build a ship myself ...

Neat project.
If you wanted more detail (and to spend a lot more money :( ) there is a PE set available for this kit.

I have a similar set for the Airfix Ajax (to become the Achilles of course) but that project hasn't got to the top of my to-do list yet.
For some reason the Ajax PE set is a lot cheaper. :huh:

I remember walking round the Belfast as a kid on a school trip, sad to think that was 35+ years ago :ohmy: :(

I'll be building one soon enough, another one anyways - but this time on the bigger scale.

Cool mate, 1/600 scale is a bit weird, but still quite cool! Will be watching as I always enjoy a ship build
