Re: New Italeri Stirling!

If the numbers are indicating the fuel system it could be that the oval plate was bolted to a flat counterpart through the self-sealing rubber of the tank (I have seen this arrangement in other aircraft). The metal pipe would then have poss...

Re: Stirling Artifact Identification

Hi John. Could this second part be the oil feed union from the reservoirs? The chap I got it from had another identical one from the same aircraft.
