HMS Belfast was a WWII light cruiser of the British Royal Navy. It entered service on August 5, 1939. At the end of November of the same year, as a result of damage by a German mine, he was excluded from service for three years. From 1942, it covered Arctic convoys. On December 26, 1943, together with the cruisers HMS Norfolk and HMS Sheffield, they repelled the attacks of the German battleship Scharnhorst, which was trying to break into the Allied convoy. The detention of Scharnhorst contributed to its subsequent entrapment and subsequent sinking. HMS Belfast also took part in the attack on the German battleship Tirpitz. From June 1944, it underwent a major renovation. In August 1945, he entered the port of Sydney when he was met by the end of the Pacific War. In the years 1945-1962, with breaks for repairs, he served in the Far East. participation in the Korean War. In 1966 it was intended for a residential hulk. In 1971, he was in danger of being scrapped.

Thanks to the active attitude of British society, this did not happen. It was anchored on the Thames and became a museum unit. Subsequent renovations extend its life.


In cooperation with IMW (Imperial War Museums), the model made of COBI construction blocks was designed in a scale of 1: 300 and faithfully reproduces the details of its historical prototype. The miniature battleship is 64 cm / 25.2 "long and 19.5 cm / 7.7" high. It has many moving parts, such as deck guns, rotating artillery towers, rudders and propellers. The model has been covered with high-quality prints imitating equipment and camouflage. The prints do not wear off even during intense play. The set includes a black display stand and a white plate with the name and scale of the model printed on it. There is also the IMW (Imperial War Museums) logo on the plate. The product is a perfect gift for all lovers of history, maritime military and marine. It will look great on a desk, a bookcase or a souvenir shelf.
