Airfix Catalogue description:

The angular 'Sterling' completes the trio of wartime British heavies; it was the first four engined bomber to come into R.A.F. service in World War II and took part in the famous attacks on the Scharnhorst and Gneisenau. When replaced as a night-bomber it continued in use for mine laying, transport and as a glider tug. No less than 273 parts are contained in this wonderful kit which can be built up into either a B.I or B.II version. The enormous undercarriage is faithfully duplicated in all its detail, the bomber bays can be assembled closed or open to display the full bomb load and even an R.A.F. tractor and bomb trollies are included.

- From 5th Edition (1967)
