@ Bezzo

I would rather have flown the R.E.8 than the early B.E.2 or 'Fee'.  At least it had guns that fired in both directions! The B.E. (about 3500 built) gained the nickname 'Quirk' and was withdrawn from frontline service by early 1917 while the 'Fee' had that nasty great engine rotating behind the pilot's head.  They only produced a little over 200 of those.  As for the 'Tate's' numbers, at least it was still in production at the end of the war, which does say something about its usefulness.

@ Doug

If you want a 'real' aircraft for Pulp, consider the D.H.4, Avro 504 or the F.E.2b Bristol Fighter.  They were all in use until the late 20's or early 30's, with the 504 only ceasing production in 1932.  At least 2 of them are prettier, too.  :D

I'm sure you're right but I'm not really looking for pulp planes - just some way of using a rather curious Christmas present.

Thanks
