We present an alternative model of V2028 Cyg, a B[e] star of FS CMa type. The star V2028 Cyg is atypical among FS CMa stars due to its composite spectra of B4III and K2II-Ib type. Our modelling of the temporal variability of the Hα line bisectors indicates as the most probable model a geometrically and optically thick disc, which is surrounded by a dusty ring seen almost edge-on. This provides a possibility that the K-spectral component is formed in the disc.

Based on observations obtained at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT), which is operated by the National Research Council of Canada, the Institut National des Sciences de l’Univers of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientique of France, and the University of Hawaii. The observations at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope were performed with care and respect from the summit of Maunakea, which is a significant cultural and historic site.
