Kit features traditional wood/tissue construction, markings for US Mail aircraft, detailed full size plans, building instructions, hardware, wheels, colored tissue and propeller. Comet was a famous manufacturer of stick and tissue flying and static models. In the 1930s Great Depression, they lead the low-priced kit revolution with the "Dime Scale" kits and famous advertisements in Model Airplane News magazine and others. 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.

Bomb bay opens/closes and contains bombs, sonobuoys and torpedo. Detailed cockpit. Crew door opens and closes. Engine is motorized. Includes a crew of three, torpedo cart, tow bar, tow tractor and driver. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, motor and instructions.

Revell Avro Dam Buster Lancaster, 1/72, H202-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold

Features specially modified Lancaster fuselage with Dam Buster bomb and release mechanism. Landing gear retracts, props and wheels turns and control surfaces move. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The Dam Busters squadron was famous for its daring raids on three German dams on May 16, 1943. Carrying the special Barnes Wallis-designed bombs, the Lancasters flew very low over the water in the face of heavy flak to drop the rotating bombs perfectly. Many did not return. The bombs did perform as promised, first skipping over the water, hitting the dam, then rolling down 30 feet before exploding with tremendous force. In an airburst, these bombs would not have damaged the dams, but since water is incompressible, the dams were breached.
