Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c

Recommended Posts

Here is my bash at the Airfix BE2c. Straight OOB. Went together really well and looks a nice little machine.

The boxing has two options that flown by William Leefe Robinson of 39 Squadron RFC, in which he shot down a Zeppelin. I chose the RNAS option which doesn't identify the squadron but is the Royal Naval Air Squadron East Fortune, East Lothian, December 1916. I chose this one due to my FAA/RNAS interests, the option for the rockets on the struts and the fact I had worked a little at East Fortune Hospital, which is on the same basic site, back in the '80's.

The WIP can be found http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235003821-be2c/page-1 . As said straight out of the box using one set of the transfers provided. I used Revell Aqua Olive Green for the PC10 and Citadel Bleached Bone with a touch of yellow for the Linen. Had a bash at natural wood which is variable. No rigging as life's too short. I like it and it's a good build, had fun doing it.

Thanks. Will see what I can do Dave. I mainly use my iPad for photos so although good for above not such a good device for level photos. I'll see what I can conjure up tomorrow. May end up with a new skill.

Very nice build indeed. Been over to East Fortune a couple of times this year, a great museum.

Try the iPad upside down for the pics, I had the same difficulty getting pics of my Seaking last week.

Ahhh, the way a MODEL BIPLANE should be, sans rigging!

I will now change my name and move to Bolivia to avoid all those with AMS who are now after me.

I've played about with the iPad and hopefully these will pass muster.
