The Bristol M.1 Monoplane Scout was a British Monoplane fighter of the First World War. it holds the distinction of being the only British Monoplane fighter to reach production during the Conflict.
During mid-1916, work commenced at Bristol on a new fighter aircraft as a provate venture, headed by aeronautical engineeer Frank Barnwell. In comparision to comtemporary efforts by other british manafacturers, such as Airco's DH.5, the emerging design was considered to be more radical, having adopted a hihly aerodynamic and clean monoplane configuration. It featured a carefully streamlined circular cross section fuselage built using conventional wood and fabric construction techniques to minimuse manufacturing difficulty.
The round type fuselage is built using formers and stringers over a rectangular crutch which is simple to build, yet gives the illusion of complex scale construction. The flying qualities are superb, slow, graceful flight and lazy aerobatics is where the bristol is at its best. We invite you to enjoy the flavour of a World War 1 model that flies great!
