Comet Grumman Hellcat F6F Solid Wood Model Airplane, 1/64, H1

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

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 worthy of the shipbuilders of old, especially considering the limited offerings. Many manufacturers issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufacturers 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. The F6F features profile cut parts, color decals, finished wheels, printwood, templates, wood stock and a very large and detailed sheet of drawings including detailed construction steps. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
