Unusual in that don't see Stirling OOB or kit-bash builds.   Looking quite natural.  :smiley:

Very nice, looks very good and "together".  So, will we see a Stirling with a Superfortress wing, then?  Given your tastes, I'd wager it will be in blue.

Stirling being larger of RAF bombers is logical choice for B-29 wing.   Tricycle gear or tail dragger ?

providing for slightly longer wings,

but even less spectacular than the previous one
(but then maybe it makes it more tricky to detect?)





so I added a few bananas (miniature, plastic) to spice it up, using the tractor in the kit

Definitely something different by way of a streamlined steam locomotive.  I could see that "cab-forward" configuration working anywhere there were a lot of mountains to tunnel through.

Steam-driven supercharger for all four engines?  It looks like one of those odd experiments tried when all options are being explored.

Of course  ---  Has steam driven superchargers, should have realized.   Is obvious now.  ;)
