1:72 Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c Scout


Designed as a very stable and easy to fly aircraft suitable for reconnaissance, the RAF BE2 series were in service throughout the First World War. However, the stability and lack of speed that made them so suitable for photographing enemy trenches left them very vulnerable to attack from German fighters, especially from mid-1915, when the Fokker Eindecker came into service. Such were the losses that the BE2c gained the unfortunate nickname 'Fokker Fodder' during this period. As its suitability for combat waned the BE2c was used more as a training aircraft. Based in the United Kingdom and around the empire, the BE2c was used to train the next generation of pilots who would go to war against the Kaiser's Germany.
