A really superb build,love the White Ensign photo etch detail. I just finished Jolly Roger MK III of 199 squadron, mostly stock but with some cockpit, bomb bay and turret details, I'll post some pics soon.



Some final details added to be followed by the inevitable retouching here and there. I might tone down the bombs a wee bit more and I’ve left some of the carriers empty so as to show off the WEM P.E. pieces.
A little more work required around the engines and exhausts and the aileron actuators but the construction phase is now complete.
Till the next.

Love seeing a Stirling build ..............( pardon the pun )
My only question would be the colouring of the bomb load?
Hopefully, someone a little more knowledgeable than I will make comment on them.
Cheers,

Wonderful work Sir! And what detailing using the Brass plating etc.

I like your use of additional detailing that's not in the kit.

I had to build/fabricate the entire Radio Ops station instruments as there is/was nothing in the kit! The process can be seen here and few a few more images onwards...https://www.flickr.com/photos/87402723@N03/10713040375/
