Their latest Belfast, as I described in my message, has been around since the late 1960s. I bought my first Superior Models Belfast in 1968. You cannot believe the "year" given in catalogs or lists. Dealers want to sell models, not be historically accurate!
I don't recall that Superior Models ever offered a 1939 version of Belfast. Their long-time model is a recast (with details added) of the Framburg 1/1200 scale model, which shows Belfast after reconstruction, bulges added, etc. I once had a Comet version of Belfast that was obviously pre-1939 (a terrible model!). Superior Models advertising nowadays shows years that do not reflect the actual state of individual models. This can easily fool a novice Comet-Authenticast, Superior Models collector.
Looking for the the Superior earlier B402 Belfast 1939 version, not their newer 1944 version. Please contact me at Phil_Woodruff[at]protonmail[dot]com.
