LF: 1/72 Bristol Hercules Engines, Cowlings and Props
« on: July 15, 2018, 11:52:26 pm »
As the tinlid says, I am looking for 2 x 1/72 Bristol Hercules engines, cowlings and props.  I am willing to pay for postage to downunder for the items.

Ended up buying the High Plains Hercules Engine replacements for the old Airfix Beaufighter kit.  Not to be used on a Beaufighter model, mind you.  ;)

As if we'd ever think they would be!  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

You could have got the High Planes Beaufighter Mk.II kit too, it comes with three different engine sets, two sets of Merlin nacelles, and the Hercules set.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Two sets of Merlins due to different exhausts, but no Hercules.  The upper wing is different on Merlin and Hercules engined types.
