Aeroplane Heaven has announced the Bristol Bulldog is nearing the end of development with final testing underway.
Following the announcement of an updated version of the Bristol Bulldog earlier this year, Aeroplane Heaven’s CEO, Barry Bromley, explained: “The first example was released more than 15 years ago. It became very popular and we still get asked about it today, especially as we did eventually release it as freeware (no longer available).”
Consequently, Barry decided to revisit this important interwar aircraft, introducing modern technologies to give the Bulldog the tribute it deserves. It is modelled in very high definition down to the split-pin in the ‘starter dog’ on the spinner. The engine has a fully detailed valve gear - complete with double springs, rockers and other intricate details. Inside, the cockpit features a pressurised gas starting system, which has been fully simulated, a hand-cranked magneto, along with detailed machine guns and loading chutes.
