Airfix DH Comet 4B Dan-Air With Pals Flight Comet 4C Conversion, 1/144, 04176

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Includes PFK-COM4C Comet 4C Wings designed for this model. This is an excellent conversion, molded in high-definition resin with full instructions, drawing and a list of airlines and registration numbers that operated the 4C. The conversion is never used and complete. The actual kit is from 1994. Very nice model ofthe world's first jet airliner. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The initial Comet I was in operation long before the 707, which gave the British an incredible post-war lead in the expanding civil aviation market. Just as the Comet was flying high and orders were pouring in from around the world, Comets began to mysteriously fall out of the sky. Everything from lighting to terrorist bombs were blamed. For months the root cause went undiscovered. Then, in a landmark investigation that is considered the first modern post-crash autopsy, it was discovered that the stresses around a small ADF window on the top of the fuselage were causing metal fatigue failure when the fuselage was pressurized. To confirm this, a Comet I was placed in a water tank and subjected to pressurization stresses. After some time, a dramatic failure occurred. Then parts of a crashed Comet were pulled from underwater proving once and for all that this was the root cause.

Special Hobby Bell XP-77, 1/72, SH 72012

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Limited issue kit with resin cockpit. Never started. Factory sealed parts bag with decals and instructions. The XP-77 was Bell's response to a possible shortage of light alloys after the war in the Pacific broke out in 1941. The P-77 had an estimated top speed of 410 mph with two 20mm cannons and two .50 caliber machine guns but weighed only 3,700 lbs due to wood construction. Production of 25 aircraft was authorized on May 16, 1942, but lack of superchargers reduced this order to 6. By the time the aircraft flew on April 1, 1944, the shortage of light metals had never been a major issue and other types offered superior performance.
