Airfix - 1/72 Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c Scout

Designed specifically to allow aircrews to effectively secure vital reconnaissance imagery from above the battlefields of the Western Front, the Royal Aircraft Factory BE2c Scout was an aircraft with very few vices. Easy to fly and extremely stable in the air, the aircraft allowed Allied military planners to obtain clear and detailed photographs of enemy positions and troop concentrations.

Military planners were quick to see the potential of the aeroplane in providing them with the latest information from above the trenches on the Western Front. Observation balloons had provided the impetus, but quickly proved unsuitable for a number of reasons. The aeroplane, however, allowed reconnaissance aircrews the ability to observe any area of strategic interest and bring back the very latest intelligence information.

Designed specifically to allow aircrews to commit their full attention to their reconnaissance duties, the Royal Aircraft Factory proved to be an exceptionally stable aeroplane, with an extremely low accident rate and ideally suited to the role of observation scout. As aerial warfare developed over the Western Front, the attributes that made the BE2c such an able reconnaissance platform were to also make it easy pickings for the latest German fighters.

The Jet Provost was introduced in the late 1950s and quickly became the RAF's premier jet basic trainer. The T3 model, introduced in 1959, featured an uprated engine and an improved canopy design, offering the side by side seated pilot and pupil a much improved view. The Provost was a joy to fly, forgiving and easy to learn on, with many of the 1960s and 70s RAF front line pilots learning their trade on its un-swept wings. Its reliability and strength also added to its suitability as a jet trainer and the addition of wing tip tanks on the T3 also added to its endurance.
