    Awesome possibility.

    Is this the Derwent 8 or 9 engine. I am trying to dig up some good images.

    Well considering that it looks like the ANH Flash hider may have came from an aircraft, they may have taken more parts from planes for other props.

    I agree that looks promising, the torch relationship sounds good, and the proportions look right.

    WhatÂ’s the scale on this?

    Found this site that may be of interest.
    Rolls Royce homepage.

    According to the above press release, they have all the derwent engine drawings in an archive at the Hucknall branch as well as some engines. Maybe if someone were to politely write a currator there, a few of the more important drawings to us could be copied and sent. Or perhaps even a member who lives near Notts, England could arrange a tour and posibly get some info that way. Either way, I think as a group, only one or possibly two people at the most should attempt to contact RR. The more people who bother them, the less likely we are to get any information.

    Also, since the engine was used on the Meteor. Perhaps a visit to the local air museum and a talk with the restoration staff might yield some pics or info. If I remember, the Planes of Fame Museum in Chino, CA (near me) has a meteor on display.

    Acerocket I agree entirely, researching this should be handled with great delicacy to ensure we get the best information possible.

    I think he's talking about the functionality of the piece, read some text at that site and you'll get an idea.

    Those patent links arent working for me.
    They just say the search timed out.

    This one will be a tough search, but hopefully a fruitful one.
    I want an IG-88 head.

    The RR museum is at Hucknall ? Never knew that and I do my shopping there every 2 weeks. I only live about 20 minutes away but I dont think its open to casual visitors. I think you have t be a member of the trust.

    If I can help though just lmk.

    The site was very slow, timed out on me several times or I might have found something closer. Also, I believe those are all to recent for the actual item. It is hard to search for older items unless you know the patent numer. So, find newer items and click the links to the patents they reference in their making.
