Not on facebook, Tom. Any other way to get the images?
Cheers,

There you go John. There are some sceptics in the modelling fraternity who doubt if we'll see this in 2013?

Thanks, Dave. What a real shame it is only 1:72 scale. Someone really does need to address the misery of the 1:48 scale Sanger version.

Thanks for the pic Dave.


Looks good...in the advert :) ...window de-icer storks, portholes forward of the cockpit, accurate looking pitot head(s). Mid upper fairing looks a bit suspect though?

Hopefully, the panel lines are more accurate than the airfix kit. Does anybody know how many versions of the Stirling will be in the Italeri offering?...more importantly, how much! :P


fingers crossed!

Here's an update with sprue shots of the Mk IV. The panel lines look a bit OTT for my taste, but who cares it's a state of the art Stirling :D

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 I should have two MkIV's gracing my workshop! :D :D :D

Ok, so it didn't arrive until today! Yes the panel lines look to be too deep, but it does come with a nice etched brass detail sheet, and hey, it's a Mk IV.... AT LAST! Now, I have to be good and leave it on the shelf until I have finished the house. :-(
