The Sterling Mk. 1 Model Kit by Italieri recreates the first four-engined British heavy bomber of World War II. The design had high wings, four engines and the cabin elevated over the fuselage. The airframe was fully made in metal. Another feature that characterised the bomber was the impressive size of the landing gears.
The first bombers went to equip the Royal Air Force Bomber Command Squadrons from the end of 1940. Operational status was reached on January 1941 and the first war mission was dated February 1941 against logistic installation in Rotterdam.
