The Coanda Jet was the first jet aircraft in the world. Henri Coanda combined a combustion engine (to drive the compressor) with a combustion chamber. Here you find
information about the real one:
The resin kit ( https://fankitmodels.com/product/172-coanda-1910-worlds-first-jet-aircraft-kit/ ) I can recommend only to experienced modellers. The details on the parts look excellent. Most of the parts fit well but attaching the wings was a real challenge for me.
There are two replicas (shown in the link above) which look realistic. But when I compared to the pictures from 1910 I found some differences, so I painted the model to my own interpretation.
All was painted with brush. To make the surface looking like wood, I used three shades of brown.
I built this unique model for a friend, Dieter. He builds RC-planes and planes in 1/1 and allows me to fly his DFS Habicht replica, so I care for the small ones....
