The Taifun Blizzard Mk II was a powerful engine and interesting looking model diesel engine in its days. Hans Hoernlein manufactured 2 different versions of this engine. They also came with short and long spinners. Some of the first Mk I's had a long red spinner.

Not all of the crank cases were painted, some were plain.
