The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The initial Comet Is were 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 lightning 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.

Maintrack Gloster E.1/44 - Single Engine Meteor Back-Up - Bagged, 1/72, PX-028

Vacuform Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. From 1994. Very high quality vac kit with moldings of higher quality than some injection molded kits. Features parts to build either prototype, main vac parts with all fine recessed panel lines, cockpit, cast metal details and full decals for two aircraft. During WWII, the British slated the Meteor to be the RAFs first operational fighter. However, in 1942 Rover was having significant problems producing the Whittle W2 jet engine. So the Air Ministry specified an alternative plan - a single engined jet fighter that could be used if there were insufficient engines for the twin-engined Meteor. From specification E.5/42, Gloster designed and manufactured two prototypes, either of which can be built with this kit. The aircraft turned out to be underpowered; luckily, the engine supply problem was solved when Rolls Royce traded engine production with Rover and the later took on tanks. Due to initially poor handling, the tail was raised to a near 'T Tail' and this feature was retained on the Meteor. The two prototypes remained as test beds, one of them flying until at least 1951. Both are reported as scrapped.

She was used as the Imperial Yacht and from 1893 to July 1914. From 1894 to 1914, with the exception of 1906, Emperor Wilhelm II used her on his annual prolonged Nordlandfahrt trips to Norway. In total he spent over four years on board. In June 1914 Hohenzollern II attended the Kiel regatta and on 25 June the last state banquet was held on board to entertain officers of the British fleet whose ships had been invited to attend. At the end of July 1914 Hohenzollern II was put out of service in Kiel, the last captain being Kapitan zur See Johannes V. Karpf. The ship became property of the Weimar Republic in 1918. Struck on 27 February 1920, she was scrapped in 1923 in Wilhelmshaven.
