HMS Belfast
« on: February 19, 2008, 09:34:27 PM »

In connection with research for a possible magazine article on Belfast does anyone know if there are plans or a hull for the ship readily available? I imagine the Maritime Museum will have a set of plans and there is also the Anatomy of the Ship book but I'm not aware of anything else which would facilitate the building of a model of this cruiser.

Thanks,  Colin

Thanks Richard, I had it in the back of my mind that somebody did one but couldn't remember who! I checked out the usual culprits.
