    Hello, people,
    I'd like to know more about the layout of the 2 stage Merlin as it was mounted onto Lancaster's wings, particularly about the engine inter cooler. Some schematics would be neat, too :)

    I believe the small number of BVI Lancs with Merlin 85s had the same annular radiator and layout as the Avro Lincoln BI. Might be easier to find the info for the Lincoln.
