Bristol Fighter F2B ARF

The Bristol Fighter was a World War I two-seat biplane fighter and reconnaissance aircraft designed by Frank Barnwell. Nicknames included the ‘Bristol Fighter,’ the ‘Brisfit,’ or simply the ‘Biff.’

Although a two-seater, the F.2B was fast and maneuverable enough to be flown in combat like a single-seat fighter and more than held its own against the opposing single-seat German fighters. The pilot's fixed forward-firing .303 inch Vickers machine gun was the F.2B’s principal weapon; the observer's flexible .303 inch Lewis Gun served an additional "sting in the tail." The F.2B could also carry up to 240 pounds of bombs.

         

The Bristol project was first recommend by Mr. Gart Hansford from Dubai UA, one of Maxford USA’s valued customers. This ARF will be approx. 1/6 scale, with a 70” wingspan and is designed for the customer’s choice of glow or electric power systems.
