The Microaces Aero Bristol F2b ‘Brisfit’ is designed from the ground up and is possibly the most detailed and realistic microscale aircraft of its type. The airframe is designed to take most ultra micro RC equipment found in similar sized RTF aircraft. Double sided printing directly onto foam ensures a light, low wing load aircraft with lots of character and predictable flight characteristics.
History in the Making
Our love of aviation history ensures that the aircraft we choose to reproduce as kits not only look fantastic on static display and in the air, but they also carry a depth of history that can be explored. This beautiful silver winged aircraft served as part of RAF 5 Squadron in the 1920s in Quetta, India. No.5 Squadron used the Bristol F.2b in front line service right up until 1931. They were the last British squadron to de-commission this magnificent aircraft.
In addition to the detail already lavished on the Microaces Aero Bristol F.2b kit, the No.5 Squadron aircraft also includes the tropical radiator mounted under the nose (additional cooling required in the hot condition it was operating in) and the extended exhaust system down both sides of the fuselage. Enormous static appeal as well as a presence in the air that belies its diminutive 1/24th scale.
