Rolls Royce “Merlin”

Rolls Royce “Merlin”

Commissioned by Rolls Royce and sited at the entrance to their Bristol Factory on the A38.
The wings are taken from those of the Spitfire and it is named after their iconic engine.
Scaling up from a maquett by Bridget McCrum who had been awarded the commission,i created a full scale model in poly and generated a mold to produce the final plug in GRP for sand casting.
I also helped in the development of the mound it was to sit on outside the Rolls Royce factory.
