  1. Just an old fashioned Stirling With old fashioned ways A fuselage tattered and torn. Four Hercules engines keep chugging away She's flying from midnight to dawn. Though she don't go so fast, No great height does she claim, Sure there's something that makes her divine When she flies there on high She's the Queen of the sky She's that old fashioned Stirling of mine Taken from Stirling Wings by Jonathan Falconer - song often sung in the sergeants mess at Lakenheath where 149 Sqn were based in 1943 After 10 months of sloggi
  2. Hi guys, been a while since I posted any work here, so it thought I would post up a recently finished kit. Here we have the old and very vintage Airfix Short Stirling bomber in 1:72. If any of you have built this kit (judging by its age there may well be a fair few of you out there) it is in the kindest possible term, a DOG. If it were a car, it would be a Mini Metro with bead mat seat covers and beige interior. I could list all the problems and jobs done to just get the kit to fit properly never mind gain more accuracy but it would be a three page epic so if anybody really wants to know, PM
  3. Hi all, This is the third old skool Airfix RAF bomber i've built over the last few years - others being a Wellington and Halifax - for some odd reason I love doing these old kits and my modelling budget wont stretch to kits such as the Italeri Stirling anyway. This was built OOB apart from a bit of scratch detail in the cockpit. Unfortunately snapped off one of the front turret guns doing the decals so need to repair that! Painted by airbrush in Revell aqua colour dark Earth/bronze green over matt black. Cheers Simon

  6. Hello all, I came across an old Esci decal No.57(Whitley/Short Stirling). One of the schemes was for a 15th Squadron Stirling Mk I(J-LS). This aircraft showed a court jester with bombing mission markings. The aircraft codes are painted in white and I was wondering if they were correct or should they have been mid gray. Also, are there any pics in the internet of this aircraft? I googled but did was not lucky. My plan is to use them on an Airfix Stirling a friend gave me as a gift. It is already half built but should be good as a SOB. Yes, I am going "old school" all the way. Thanks for

  9. Airfix Improvement Sets – Hurricane, Stirling & Defiant 1:72 Valiant Wings Valiant Wings have brought out a range of 1/72 aftermarket products to improve or convert existing kits. These particular samples are for a selection of Airfix kits. Their range covers vac form, etch and resin upgrades and as their website states, they aim to “offer simple to use modelling solutions to improve or upgrade kits that have been on the market for some time”. Their niche is focussed on those who are venturing into the realm of aftermarket for the first time having gained some exp
  10. After the Halifax build, there's a hole in the Bomber Command collection, namely the Stirling. I broke the older one up following a take off accident in my sons room !!!! Before I start, I'd like to thank Neil Whitely Bolton for doing a translation of an italian build: http://www.drivefly.it./schede_soci/Vignoc...ng%20Mk%20I.php And Len Thompson who I've been speaking to via email and who has given me lots of tips and pictures of his amzing build and to which I could only dream of achieving. Most of the detail that I'm going to be replicating comes from these builds, but unfortunately, won'
