Mosquito 2 stage cooling system

Recommended Posts

Hi guys 

Does anyone have any drawings or photos of the cooling pipework for the Merlin 72 engines in the mosquito? I'm going to have to scratch build the cooling for the engine bay I know it comes out from the radiators. Through a hole in the bay. But I don't know what they look like or where they attach to the engine

I'd ask on Flypast Forums Daz.

Obviously,the Merlin 72 series in the Mossie is going to be a developement of the Merlin 70(2 speed 2 stage)as fitted into the Spit.X/XI PR kites.

Kermit Weeks over in the States used to have a Mossie with 2 stage 2 Speed Merlin's in it so possibly 72's.

I have a cast around to see what I can find,Mossies aren't really my speciality,but I think the 72 only went into the PR.IX.......

Cheers both it turns out the the Mossie b.ix and b.xvi had the 72 (the difference being the xvi was pressurised) this is the first thing I've found to say that intact to work on luckily I'm only having one engine on show so won't do a lot of work on the other

See,I told you Mossies weren't really my bag.
