DATAFILE 42-RAF BE2C
PUBLISHED in 1993,our 42nd DF was written by Jack Bruce and became one of our top-sellers. In 36 pages, plus covers, the author traces the troubled wartime career of this two-seater that was soon outclassed over the Western Front. Built in prodigious numbers, the 'Quirk' was operated in all main war theatres and for a time served the RFC well,but its true success came as a converted single-seat home defence nightfighter, five German raiding airships falling victim to BE2c pilots.With 76 rare archive photos and over three dozen close-up detail images of cockpits,armament and engines,this is a goldmine of information for builders of the 1:72 Airfix kits.Ian Stair contributes the detailed 1:72 and 1:48 scale plans and Ray Rimell, the camouflage and markings section with three rear cover profiles. We have ten copies remaining of the first edition-and all of them are in near-mint condition.
