Hi I am building the 1/4 scale Merlin from a set of castings I purchased from a guy that did not have the equipment to make it.
I need some help withe the gears in the gear case as some of the plans are missing.

the person that designed and made the castings for that kit is Richard Maheu, if you still need plans I can probably pass on to you his contact info.
peter195124 all I need is a list of the gears that go into the gear box.
there's two gears in the propellor reduction gearbox up front,
there's a multitude of gears in the "wheelcase" (Rolls Royce term) in the back,
you probably need to know both, but you should be clear what you're asking for

PS, I highly recommend stripping all the black paint off, IMHO this looks terrible not only on a model but also on engines that are in museums, and the reason/logic behind black paint doesn't apply to models or museum pieces, IMHO, YMMV, VWPBL, yada, yada, yada...
