Another Lunacy... 1/48 Stirling


Recommended Posts

Hello Dears,

It is a bit weird for me to start this thread for my friend ...

Sooo, here we go...

Years ago, we heard of a master for a 1/48 Stirling for sale or short run production.

We took contact with the guy, he was the man who did most of the masters for Fonderie Miniature...

Shivers down the spine...

However, he was a fine guy and I've had a good modelling time with him

I borrowed the master and Pierre and me started to collect plans and drawings...

Taking moulds of some parts and trying to improve what can be improved...

The fuselage was cut in four pieces and the Stirling would have been another Fonderie masterpiece... (Yes, I'm really sarcastic)


But for unknown reason, a few months later, I received a letter from the guy asking for the master...

So, we picked all the parts, packed it and send it back to France.

I don't know what has happened.... Neither did I know why he changed his mind and became angry...

My best guess is that he wanted to build a Stirling when he was still able to do it...

End of the frustrating story for us....


But BS103 is a BC fan to the bone...

His brother is an RC modeller and use to work with fiberglass....

So after a lot of correction both in shape and dimensions, here's where he was...


Well, I'll be back because Flickr is down again...

The original masters were partly in plastic and plaster..

Here's the fiberglass first shot...


and the rectified fuselage...

BS103 has also an exemplary of the Sanger offer (you bet ??)


That will be a Frankenstirling for sure !!

But, interiors are well on its way...
