  1. something we are aiming to rectify (albeit only the front 25 feet or so) feel free to visit our website below and as the General says, we're only too glad to help out John
  2. Nice update Elgar. That 120 looks a lot lighter than I recall, perhaps I could suggest 'dirtying' it up a bit, although it does help to make things much easier to see detail though the glazing. Excellent work down the back end as well, it looks sufficiently busy down there cheers John
  3. And of course you would all be most welcome It's looking a lot more 'cockpit like' now
  4. Another great build mon General of what looks to be a well thought out kit. must drop some hints to Mem Sahb and the sprogs...... John
  5. Hi Greg try looking at our website http://stirlingproject.co.uk/ or there's: http://sas.raf38group.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=6 John
  6. What can I say Elger, you're certainly doing the old girl some justice . I'm glad that James and ourselves in the Project have been of use to you, I wish I had your patience in 1/72, doing it in 1/1 is bad enough. Cheers John
  7. Not strictly true, whilst the flaps and undercarriage were electrically actuated, the flying controls (Rudder, Ailerons and Elevators) were conventional cable operated. Early Stirling engine controls were hydraulically actuated through Exactor units but these were replaced on later aircraft reverting to conventional cables and pulleys John
  8. Nice progress Neil Thought something looked off the astrodome hatch should be on the stbd side Will you be going to the MK modelshow? John
  9. Ahem, I know what you can do Neil, so I'm expecting a bit more on the cockpit LOL John
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. Some interesting new schemes but a bit surprised at 2 x 4FTS ones albeit they are a bit different to each other John
  15. If you need any help when comes the big day, please feel free to ask for any assistance cheers John
  16. Nice work Tom. I take it the Stirling is very much on the back burner? John
  17. Welcome from a fellow Cambridgeshire modeller

    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
  20. Welcome Laurent from a fellow modeller and aircraft restorer (Short Stirling) John
  21. Partly due to David Collins who haunts these here parts :). He also runs the Hornet Project here in the UK John
