The Hanriot H.D.2
was a floatplane version of the Hanriot H.D.1
fighter with (on later models) an enlarged rudder and fin that extended below the waterline. Seaplane HDs -- unlike their landplane cousins -- were armed with twin Vickers guns because the corresponding loss in performance was not as critical to their mission. While Aviation Militaire
had declined to build the HD.1, Aviation Maritime
accepted deliveries of at least several dozen HD.2s.
The US Navy purchased twenty-six HD.2s to accompany their Donnet-Denhaut
flying boats working out of Dunkerque. They flew over five hundred escort missions but did not encounter German seaplane-fighters.
This model is available in 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:285 scales. At 1:144, it shows an early HD.2 with the more typical HD tail and a single Vickers. (Also available is a version with the rounded tail and twin Vickers
.) At 1:285 you get both an early and late model,
joined by disposable links. At that scale in Detail Plastic you get detachable, translucent propeller disks for each plane.
