Dated 1935. Very rare. This kit is almost never found and even less in this condition. includes the never-seen sealed tube of very colorful Comet Cement and a glass jar of Comet brand Banana Liquid.

Never started and complete. 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. (Carl Goldberg went on to found his own company and produced well designed and popular free-flight and RC aircraft). 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.

Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG++
Third issue of this classic kit. The box is dated 1956 but you can see the new oval logo moved to the lower right with 'Famous Fighters' in the border which would date this kit to 1958-59. Earlier in the 1950s a company called 'Helicopters for Industry' created a line of large early kits. In 1956 Aurora bought the molds and quickly reissued these models with new box artwork. Large kit features cockpit, spinning rotors, rotating wheels and opening doors. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Poor
First issue from the early 1950s in the one-piece box. Molded in high gloss yellow and brown. The model has not been started. Complete with instructions, decals and all parts. The earliest issues of this kit did not have decals; this one does. That dates is as late in the first release. In the 1920s through the 1940s Hawk made constant scale 1/48 aircraft kits from wood. In 1946 they added plastic injection molded kits to the line and were possibly the first injection molded kit manufacturer in the USA. When Hawk made an early jump to all-plastic kits they kept the 1/48 scale and created these new one-piece boxes with two color artwork. NOTE: The box is complete but has numerous tears, tape marks, tape stains etc as shown.
