Gallery & Review: 1/600 HMS BELFAST

So this is it, the complete model, sorry for taking so long, my camera was without battery and I didn't have the charger with me, but finally, here it is. I took lots of photos, and I decided to make like a montage, since it's a pretty complex model and I'm not a big photoshopper, I made a simple montage. This is the best I could do, it only took me like 10 minutes. In the picture you can see that the cannons are pointing to the air plane, and it's in the middle of the ocean, and with some crazy waves (let's just imagine it xD).

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 7

Welcome to the last part of this work in project, this is the last part, part 7, I glued all the parts, I still need to put some things, as the main cannons, secondary cannons, and the plane. I won't be gluing those, because I find it better just having them not glued, so I can turn the cannons.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 3

Welcome back for part 3 of this WIP, so far so good, you can see that the picture is blurry but that's because the camera is very close to the model, in there, you can see 2 surviving boats, some protections, and 2 "U" shaped pieces that will help support the other top part for the ship.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 2

So here I am for the part 2, in here I show you the finished air plane.

1/600 HMS Belfast WIP Part 1

Welcome to the Part 1 of my work in project of the 1/600 HMS Belfast, as I said in the post before this kit is from 1973, and you can tell it's old just from the look of the cover.

My name is António Santos, a.k.a. as Agcsantos (youtube) or Tonythem in some forums, games, and so on.
This will be my hobby blog, where I'll show you some of my works and reviews of all sorts of kits, like Gundam Kits, Aircraft Kits, etc...
I have now started this hobby so I'll take some time do my kits, and I count on you to criticize my works.
I'm from Portugal (so I don't speak English, so pardon me if I make any mistake), I'm a 17 years old teenager, (almost an adult :D or not... xD) I started watching gundam a few years ago, and I love it, one of the best series of anime I have ever saw.
So I'll be doing a lot of works and reviews specially on Gundam Kits. I have ordered my first Gundam kit, it's a 1/144 Exia Repair II, I wanted the 0 Gundam but it is unavailable, and I also ordered a Gundam Market Set (the normal one), all from Hobby Link Japan.
Currently I am in the beginning of my first model, it's a 1/600 HMS Belfast military ship, this model is my father's and it was made in 1973 by Airfix (yes the model is pretty old, but it is really good, and well detailed). I'll be posting this week and so on, pictures of my work in progress, so stay tuned for more :)
