Rolls Royce Merlin

Background

We are truly fortunate to be able to enjoy these magnificent images of the various Merlin sub-assemblies.  The complete engine was created by John Fall and he has been kind enough to let me display them on the website. (See “Acknowledgements”)  The software John used was SolidWorks and the renderings below are quite stunning and deserve a few minutes of viewing for each image.  Without this work from John, most of us would never get a chance to see into the heart of the beautiful Merlin engine.

    very impressive work. I’m interested to know how John obtained all the data required to model the engine. Looks like a Packard V 1650?
