Bill Halliwell G'day Alex, I love the Lancs, however, I'm just as fond of the Stirling which has become the unsung hero of Bomber Command. It's a pity they don't get the same attention as the Lancs. A great build, mate, really outstanding. Cheers, raafbloke

David Taylor mainstream 1/48 would be a dream as with other ww2 Brit bombers.
Alex Viana Academy/Minicraft (2120) Focke-Wulf Fw190A6/8 - 1/72. Nice kit, very detailed for 1/72. The only problem was the decals, which simply disintegrated when I tried to apply them. I had to buy a new set from Eagle Cals. I airbrushed it with Humbrol and Hobby Color paints (RLM 70, 71, 65, 24, 04), This is an A6 version.
Alex Viana Thanks Gorby, Dave and Guy for the comments. The B-26 took me a long time to build. Lots of problems came up. Old kits are challenging. Now I'm building another old kit: the Airfix Short Stirling 1/72. Although being older than the B-26, I'd say it's not as bad as I expected.

Dave Flitton I have yet to acquire that particular model, always wanted one.

Alex Viana I bought mine on eBay from a lady in the U.S. (Maine). Paid 10 USD. It comes with a tractor (David Brown) and its driver, a bomb trolley and 16 bombs. It will make a nice diorama. On the Airfix site it says it's out of stock. I've been trying to improve the model by scratch building some details such as the cockpit and the wheel wells which are devoid of details. I'll post pictures of the model when it's completed. The Short Stirling is an impressive bomber, I've always admired it. it's a real shame that no one has survived the war.There's this Stirling project going on in Britain. I believe some enthusiasts are trying to rebuild one from parts found in different places. Tx for the comments Dave.
