Re: 299 Squadron Stirling Build - Arnhem

Thanks Guy, and some outstanding work on your part. I especially like the look of the undercarriage. It gave me fits when I built the Italeri Stirling a couple three years ago, especially since it had to be installed early in the building process. Cheers, Mark I've got the Italeri one yet to do.

Re: 299 Squadron Stirling Build - Arnhem

It's looking great, Guy. As Ed mentioned last year, your old photos aren't showing so if you get the chance to re-post them, it would be much appreciated.

Re: 299 Squadron Stirling Build - Arnhem

So Sorry not to have got back to you at the time you posted. Life has been somewhat hectic having re-married! Would you believe that my Stirling is still in its box? I have also now become the editor of the Stirling Times, the magazine that goes out to paid up members of the Stirling Aircraft Societ...
