  1. Ahem, I know what you can do Neil, so I'm expecting a bit more on the cockpit LOL John
  2. Hi Cees As you say the perspex is very different, but a Wellington FN5 structure is taller. On a stirling and lancaster, the ammo boxes are mounted under the turret ring with the boxes lids level with the base of the cupola. On a Wellington the ammo boxes are mounted above the level of the cupola lower surface, see https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=wellington+fn5&rlz=1C1SQJL_enGB785GB785&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjwzM2hzcTZAhWJyKQKHUnSBtsQ_AUICigB&biw=1024&bih=472#imgrc=A5ebmaypfyVKgM: unfortunately I haven't got any photos to hand showing the Lanc/Stirling installation, but it is definitely different John ps Cees, apologies, the radiator gauge didn't come as part of the package we received
  3. Hi Neal I'm sure you know already but a Wellington turret is significantly different from a Stirling one. The cupola is totally different as is the mounting of the twin brownings (about a true 4" higher than the Stirling FN5) John
  4. hi Neil You certainly don't waste any time I heartily suggest that you take a trip down to our workshop to see how we're progressing. It will also give us an opportunity to chat over some of the pitfalls with doing her in a larger scale. I've literally just sent some photos to another modeller who is doing an Italeri one so have a lot f info to hand John
  5. Awesome as ever Neil Good luck with the Stirling and considering it's size you should be able to go to town on it LOL. But at least you know where to come to for advice John
  6. Some interesting new schemes but a bit surprised at 2 x 4FTS ones albeit they are a bit different to each other John

    Nice work Tom. I take it the Stirling is very much on the back burner? John

    Didn't get to Cyprus until Spring 93 and even then only to install a mod on 84 Sqns Wessex John

    When were you on 51? I was on EWAU/EWAD from 1989
  12. Hello from France

    Welcome Laurent from a fellow modeller and aircraft restorer (Short Stirling) John
  13. Sea Hornet to be returned to flight!

    Partly due to David Collins who haunts these here parts :). He also runs the Hornet Project here in the UK John
  14. Not sure if you'd noticed Ant, but Italeri have left a huge void under each nacelle where the Oil Coolers would have been fitted on the Mk III/IV, there's nothing on the instructions to tell you to fill this void. The oil cooers were mounted in the wing leading edge on a Mk I John
  15. Stirling wreck discovered

    Aircraft is presumed to have contained 6 crew all missing and has been provisionally identified as PK225.. A Stirling is getting built albeit slowly see link in my signature John
