Dufaux C.1

Kit: Omega (1:48)

One of the most imaginative (if not the most practical) ways of carrying a forward firing gun was the Dufaux C.1 which had the engine close to the CofG. The engine was connected to the prop by a hollow shaft through which the control cables passed. This tube connected to two star-shaped steel structures on either half of the fuselage.

The kit is well cast resin with some PE. It was relatvely easy to put together. The kit decals however shattered and were replaced by A/G decals from stock.
