Another Big Warm Welcome to our latest member, Darts.

David, glad you found your way over to our landing strip. Come around to dispersal and park yourself and we'll shout you over at the Stirling Inn.

Hello everyone,

First of all please excuse my bad English.
I am French and I belong to an association of history of aviation in north of France, Aera Kit.
http://aera-kit.forumpro.fr/
We will make an exhibition in May 2012 to Proville near Cambrai.
We decided to greet the crew of Stirling of the 90 squadron shot down near this city and I must make a model of this plane.
This is why I come on this forum to research from information.

greetings

Welcome JCGUELL to our friendly forum. We have a 'modelling' section on the forum and members are more than willing to help out, should you require any details. I've just purchase a 1:48 scale Stirling and am currently waiting for it to arrive here in Australia. Can't wait to start it !

Regards,
John

Thank you K4KittyCrew

To make the Sanger model at the 1/48 is a very difficult great project.

I simply will make Airfix to the 72

My encouragements for your assembly work

Regards

JCG

Thank you John & Wayne for your friendly welcome.
While my Stirling knowledge is admittedly sparse< I do have a connection with a Stirling CGM & VC.
Looking forward to conversing about this fine aircraft, which coincidentally was powered by my father's favorite engine!
Cheers and Happy New Year to all.

Hi Paul,

Welcome on board!
I don't know enough about 38 Group Halifaxes so I'll now have some help! ;)
Cheers.
