    BE2e PLANS

    Where can one obtain plans of the BE2e, suitable for building a full size non-flying replica?

    The SAAF Museum satellite branch in Port Elizabeth are doing a feasibility study in undertaking such a project, having recently completed a full size wooden non-flying Spitfire Mk IX.

    I would imagine TVAL in New Zealand might have them?

      They do - but apparently they could not come to a mutual agreement.
      The idea is not to build a replica to airworthy standard, but merely one suitable for suspending from a display hall roof so many internal details and features may not be required.

        Try the Public Records Office at Kew, they gold most of the remaining R.A.F drawings, inc those for the BE2e.

          I can verify that National Archives hold many detailed drawings of WW1 aircraft. Also try the Imperial War Museum, who also have holdings.

            After a quick search there would appear to be quite a few things hiding in AVIA 14 at the National Archives.

            You may find it easier to ask for the listing of the RAE drawings done by Wg Cdr Unwin in the 1960s (1964 I think) which lists all the surviving BE family drawings.

              I know it is a C but what about Sywell as they rebuilt their replica

                you could try these people, lots of interesting drawings, no BE listed, but they may do one ?
