The Allison, Merlin, and DB all turn right as viewed from the cockpit by the pilot. The Griffon and Hispano-Suiza turn left. The Ha.1109 and 1112 aircraft both have the tail airfoiled for the H-S engine, so it is backwards from the Marlin's actual requirement.

Greg,

 

Any insight on how the Ha-1112 countered the effect of plugging a Merlin into the airframe?  Did they "dial up" more pre-set (i.e. built-in) rudder trim or angle the engine a few more degrees in the appropriate direction?  (I assume they didn't re-angle the tail-fin.)

Don't think it was addressed except with pilot technique. That means lots and lots of right rudder ... pretty much all the time if you want the ball centered.
