HMS Belfast 1943, Trumpeter 1/700

It's been a while since I posted. This time it's . This is a ship that reminds me of when I worked in about 25 years ago. My office faced the , and seeing her was my daily life. She was actually there wearing this camouflage! It was my first time building a 's kit, and as rumored, it was a bit tricky one. I think my outcome still has a lot of rooms for improvement. Therefore, this time I put a lot of effort into photographing the scene.

  1. Looks to me like you did an excellent job on that model. All that detail - in 1/700!

  2. I agree with ^Tom ^, that’s an awesome model you’ve built and photos are very good too.

  3. Very nice. I took the grand tour of the ship in '77

  4. A beautiful build of the Belfast, Naoki @yamanaka
    Lots of details indeed, must have been quite a challenge to get that done in 1/700.
    You have taken some nice photos of it as well, especially the one with the sunset.
    I was fortunate to see her last year, unfortunately there was no time to take a tour, a very impressive ship.

  5. That's a great looking build Naoki 👌
    My wife's office looks out on the Belfast. Not a bad view of the old Lady and the Tower of London she tells me. You model has certainly done her justice.
