Airco DH2 . Airco DH2, classic WWI pusher biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland. . Building planes from WWI has long been on my to do list. The flimsy planes from the birth of air combat are in fact really amazing, and demanded the pilot to be a real man. Sitting in open cockpit controling the plane in all kinds of weather wasn`t for sissies. The Airco DH2 was quite complicated to design, (I design all my models in LDD before building in real bricks), particular the tail booms and the landing gear gave me a hard time. I was saved by the ball joint elements introduced with the Mixel series, these allows for movement in all directions. Another problem was finding suitable vintage wheels, here a bevel gear Z20 together with a 16 mm dish became an acceptable solution. Buying parts for this model made it clear to me that some tan parts are really expensive: 3x2 wedgeplate right for 0,1$. 3x2 wedgeplate left for 4$ each. Also the 2x2 piece for the nose was very expensive. All my aircraft models are build to scale 1:40, also what I call Minifig scale, and for the first time I have added a Minifig pilot to one of my models. I think he fits perfectly as long as he is sitting in the plane, but standing beside the planes it is obvious that the proportions of a Minifig is different to a human. This model contains, like many of my other models, a few painted pieces. About the Airco DH2: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The Airco DH.2 was a single-seat biplane "pusher" aircraft which operated as a fighter during the First World War. It was the second pusher design by Geoffrey de Havilland for Airco, based on his earlier DH.1 two-seater. The DH.2 was the first effectively armed British single-seat fighter and enabled Royal Flying Corps (RFC) pilots to counter the "Fokker Scourge" that had given the Germans the advantage in the air in late 1915. Until the British developed a synchronisation gear to match the German system, pushers such as the DH.2 and the F.E.2b carried the burden of fighting and escort duties. Hope you enjoyed the pictures.
