Oxford Diecast Oxford Aviation AD005
Bristol F.2B Diecast Model
RFC No.11 Sqn, 1917

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Bristol F.2B   4.25"   6.5"

The Bristol F.2 fighter was a British two seat bi-lane fighter and reconnaissance aircraft designed by Frank Barnwell, which first took to the air in September 1916. It remained in production well into the 1920s.

This aircraft is modelled on the Bristol F2B A-7288, flown by Lt A E McKeever and his observer Lt L Powell of 11 Squadron, Royal Flying Corps on 11th November 1917. Flying over Northern France, they notched up 5 victories, all but one against the German Albatros. Andrew Edward McKeever was one of the most highly decorated flying aces of WWI, earning the DSO, MC and MC and Bar. Of Canadian origin, he survived the war and went back to Toronto. Sadly he died in 1919 following a car accident near Stratford, Ontario. He was only 25 years old.

Decorated with green upper wings and cream underwings all decorated with the RFC roundel, our model bi-plane carries the number A-7288 on the tailfin in white with Number 7 on the fuselage under the cockpit. Note the twin machine guns in the rear cockpit and the propeller hub which has a specially designed cone fitted to it. The propellers have also been given a "varnished wood" appearance, adding to the realism of this charming little 1:72 scale model.

Bristol F.2B

Designed, initially, as a two-seat reconnaissance aircraft the F.2 was first flown on September 9th, 1916.
