Comet reached it's peak in the 1930s when they acquired the services of Carl Goldberg. Goldberg was a highly accomplished modeler with articles in Model Airplane News and famous designs that won him several National level competitions in the 1930s and beyond.

Comet survived the post World War economic slump and continued kit production until they were bought out by long-time competitor Guillow's in 1998.

Monogram Mercury and Gemini Capsules - Gus Grissom Memorial Combo with Collectors Patches, 1/48, 85-4166

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$125   

Still factory sealed but has damage as shown. 1999 reissue of the 1964 Revell kit with a Monogram box. Very nicely detailed 1/48 scale kit that contains both models and display stands as well as collector's patches. This kit is a fine example of 'mold swapping'. Originally Revell cut the molds and issued this kit in the 1960s. Then Revell and Monogram merged, and the kit was reissued under the Monogram name.

Renwal M65 280mm Atomic Cannon with M249 and M250 50 Ton Heavy Gun Lifting Truck/Transporters, 1/32, 553-498

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$245   

Hard-to-find Renwal first issue of this very desirable kit- not the common Revell reissue. The box top says 'Fully Operating Model Does Everything But Fire' and it is true. The model consists of over 300 parts and has many action features typical of Renwal models. The wheels roll, tractors can be hooked to the cannon which can be stowed in the 'travel' position. The gun can move into the 'fire' position off the tractors and can be trained realistically. It is molded in olive drab plastic and the inner factory cardboard divider is present. The kit has never been started. All bags but one are still factory sealed. The "A" transport generic parts bag was split, so I opened it and did an inventory - it is complete. The few big parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete. All inspection slips are present also as well as a smaller-format Renwal kit catalog. Decals are in remarkable 'excellent' condition with the typical yellowing and some light creases as the only flaws. The instructions are also 'excellent' with one closed fold split as the only real flaw. This early issue has the main gun barrel factory built and painted; the paint is in 'excellent' condition with only a few scuffs. The box displays much better than the 'good-' grade. But I graded it as such because there are three closed-split corners (two with clear tape on them), other smaller closed splits at two corners, edge wear and general light wear. The lower box tray has a long closed split along one edge.
