Airfix Catalogue description:

The initials R.E. stand for Reconnaissance Experimental. Although originally designed for artillery observation in World War 1 and saw some active service, it was mainly used for carrying out experimental radio communication work, and did a great deal towards the safety air passengers enjoy today. The R.E.8 had a maximum speed of 102miles per hour and was powered by a 150 h.p. engine.
