Bristol built over 50,000 sleeve-valved Hercules engines during WWII and in the post-war period. This set represents the wartime VI-XVIII series with forward exhaust leading to a collector ring. Â The engines are designed to be used in a cowl and no rear detail is included.
Avro Lancaster II
Bristol Beaufighter I, VI, XX, 21HP Halifax III

Some adjustment may be needed to match the exhaust length and overall diameter to a specific kit cowl.Â We recommend using a slow set epoxy glue to assemble the exhaust. This will allow fine adjustment of the position.
The set includes two engines in polyurethane resin and the diameter is 16.5 mm.
