While the Bristol M.1 went into service with the Royal Air Force in the summer of 1916, they were used as scout and observation platforms. Their original design had been to be used as fighter planes and this model replicates what would have been Britain's only monoplane fighter in WWI. This model had been hand constructed using balsa wood and light fabric and is painted olive drab. The engine cowling and cockpit area are of a lightweight plastic with a simulated pilot at the controls. It is currently set-up for static display but could be modified to become airworthy. 62" wingspan, 46" fuselage, 18.5" high.
