Re: New Italeri Stirling!

Re: New Italeri Stirling!

Just ordered my Italeri Stirling MkIV... No idea when I will get time to make it, but it should be arriving today! My otherAirfix Stirling conversion stalled when I was caring for my wife before she passed away last year. Plenty of time coming up during the long winter evenings ahead, so come Spring...

Re: Stirling Artifact Identification

Hi James, The remains of the pipe is steel so not flexible. 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.

Re: Stirling Artifact Identification

Thank you James, that is great information, especially with the picture! There are numbers on the possible engine part. I must have been blind not to have seen them this morning! I am lead to believe that this aircraft recovery may have been featured on a BBC documentary, does anyone know about it o...
