In the 1930s and 1940s, most modelers built the flying stick and tissue type models with rubber, co2 or gas power. But there were a small but measurable percent that built solid aircraft display models of great detail. This required great skill worth of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufactures issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufactures made expensive super detailed kits with metal accessories (like Dyna-Products). Comet came in the middle and struck a nice balance of detail and cost. 1944 issue in investment grade condition. The box is factory new. Inside, the kit has never been started and is 100% complete with all wooden parts, clear plastic blisters, black plastic wheels, decals (like new!), sandpaper, full plans, glue and a glass bottle of dope or sanding sealer. All original packing dividers and tissue is mint also.
