Bristol started building aero engines on the Filton site around 1920, but the line can be traced back to the Brazil-Staker motorcar manufacturer, who built Rolls-Royce engines under licence during World War I. The company was taken over by Cosmos Engineering, who built the Mercury and the Jupiter radial engines.
The Bristol Hercules has 14 cylinders in two rows, and is a sleeve-valved radial air-cooled engine.
A scaled-down version of the engine, the Bristol Siddeley Gyron Junior, was used on the Bristol 188 stainless steel research aircraft, which was designed to investigate the effect of supersonic speeds on airframe structure.

Never one of the glamorous aircraft of WWII — the Bristol Bombay was ugly, slow, virtually unarmed, few in number and out of sight in the vast desert for most of their operational career.
As a result Bombays were the first to bomb Axis Mediterranean ports, Tobruk, Derna, Benghazi, Tripoli, etc. Throughout the successive campaigns, as battles moved back and forth, up and down the desert, the Bombays kept the battle area supplied with ammunition.
Bombays were in at the birth of the Special Air Service (SAS) offspring of the Long Range Desert Group (LRDG) and assisted with behind-the-enemy forays of destruction.

Built to a scale of 11.5 percent of the full-size plane, the model is 95 inches long, has a wingspan of 132 inches and weighs approximately 38 pounds.
The Bombay is powered by two Enya R1.20GP 4-stroke engines with either a 16x6 (best for flight performance) or a 15x8 (for more realistic appearance and sound) 3-blade prop; Terry uses a JR 8103 transmitter, a 940S PCM onboard receiver and 14 Hitec servos-that's right, we said 14 servos.
