Title: LF: 1/72 Bristol Hercules Engines, Cowlings and Props
Post by: rickshaw 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 (https://www.hpmhobbies.com/high-planes-bristol-beaufighter-essentials-for-airfix-1958-tool-accessories-1-72/) 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

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.

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