Fifty Bristol F.2A fighters were produced before production was switched over to the improved F.2B
. While it had a disastrous debut, it wasn't long before crews figured that the "BrisFit" could be flown as a conventional fighter rather than a slow, stable two-seater, and the plane's good qualities were made apparent. The F.2A differed from the F.2B by the use of the 190hp Rolls-Royce Falcon I, an uncovered section in the lower center wing, the lack of radiator shutters, a tailplane of shorter span and somewhat wider chord, and more upright center longerons.
Note: the 1/285 or 1/288 scale product has two planes
; the 1/144 product has one. Detachable, translucent propeller disks are used on the smaller scales, rather than blades.
