This is a full-color 1:144 3D print
of Bristol F.2B A.7288 of №11 Squadron, as flown by Capt. Andrew E. McKeever and 2nd Lt. Leslie A. Powell in November 1917. Canadian McKeever was the highest-scoring Bristol ace with 31 air victories in the type. On 30 Nov 1917, these two were credited with sending down four Albatros D.V's in a single day. Remarkably, McKeever's run only went from the end of May 1917, when he joined №11 Squadron, to November 1917, when he was given command of a new Sopwith Dolphin unit that never made it to France. Powell was credited with at least 19 victories as observer.
No painting is necessary -- this model comes printed in full color, ready to use. It comes with an integral flight peg for mounting on game flight stands (not included), which can be carefully removed with a cutting tool, if desired. The peg is designed for a fairly tight fit; you can file it down slightly if you prefer a looser fit. The model does not come with a flight stand, maneuver deck, or plane card. You can find an unofficial plane card for this plane in this paint scheme at https://linen.miraheze.org/wiki/File:BrisF2B-A7288-card.jpg
High-Definition Full Color has a smoother, satiny surface and deeper colors; Full Color Nylon 12 (MJF) makes a less expensive alternative, with a rougher, matte surface and less deep blacks. Both are robust materials and fine for gaming. Attached here is a picture that shows the difference between the surfaces. "Matte HDFC" choice means the print is spray-coated in the factory, and the difference is fairly subtle.
