Very nice!!  I wonder how much a change to a Merlin would affect the front end?

The Merlin might be a bit small? Even the 36.70L Griffon was something of a tiddler compared with Mikulin's 46.66L AM-38.

Go "whole hog" with a W3420?  Or possibly a Fairey Prince?

I like it :)  How about a Fairey Monarch? 2,240 hp out of a 51.08 L H-24. Or, backdating a bit, a Rolls-Royce Vulture (potentially 1,750 hp out of a 42L X-24)?

Looks a natural in those Fascist Italian markings!

Would be even more Italian with a third engine up front.

Very well done!

I wonder if you could get a pair of Shvetsov M-82 radials onto a Whirlwind and replace the Hispano 20mm guns with ShVAK cannons.

A nice lend/lease hotrod I'd think.

Hmmm, it would be rather overkill.... ;D

A pair of Klimov M-100s or M-103s would be a more realistic power boost that wouldn't twist the plane into a pretzel.
