Al I could find drawings of, are the Bristol 179 twin boom design and the 179A,
unfortunately only as internal layout drawing.
But, as a bonus, the Bristol 205, medium range jet liner  ;)

(All drawings from R.Payne "Stuck on the drawing board",  highly recommended !) 
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

Hallo all,

there are two pics of Bristol aircraft projects, but I have no Type-number. Do you know the correct designation?
1) Bristol 100-Ton Bomber   evtl. Type 168 ?
2) Bristol H.7/42

According to the following sources:

BSP Fighters and Bombers 1935-50 (Tony Buttler)

Giants of the Sky (Bill Gunston)

The British Aircraft Specifications File (Air-Britain Publication)

seems that no Type Number was raised for that 100-ton bomber

I haven't found which design match with Type 168 number (Type 167 is Brabazon I/II and Type 169 is the Buckingham)


H.7/42 is Torpedo Bomber developed from Beaufighter required to meet OR.117. Dated 3/12/42 and Issued 10/12/42 to Bristol. Type number is 164: Bristol Brigand.

Bristol 168 - military variant of the 167.
                ( no mention that is was a bomber.Could also be a cargoplane.)

p.s. 100ton  design with butterfly tail was Bristol's second attempt for a 100ton bomber.
       Butterly tail was also used in the first concepts for the 167 Brabazon.

sources: Bristol aircraft since 1910-Putnam
            Flight-19 September 1949.
