The ubiquitous Brandenburg C.I was originally developed by Hansa und Brandenburgische Flugzeugwerke AG
, but even more of the planes were built by Phönix and UFAG. Eventually almost a quarter of all Austro-Hungarian planes built were Brandenburg C.I variants, with about 1,200 delivered. It was built in 20 different series by the three companies, with a wide variety of armament mounts, adjustments in proportions, radiator mounts, and engines.
This model represents the early Phönix-built Series 26 with no forward-firing gun, long fuselage, a top-wing fuel canister, swept wings, and an uncowled 160hp Hiero engine. The product comes in both 1:144 and 1:285/6mm/1:288 scales. The 1:285 scale model contains two aeroplanes,
each comes with a detachable, translucent propeller disk. They are joined by disposable links to keep the price down, since single-part models are more affordable. You can break the links with nail clippers, wire cutters, or similar.
