This model 'contains everything' and that was no idle boast. Features dummy engine, quality printwood, stripwood and spars, balsa blocks and wood stock as required, metal hardware and stock, fully formed main and nose wheels, big machine carved prop, hardwood thrust button, color red covering tissue, two glass bottles with cork stoppers) bottle of liquids (cement and dope), rubber motor (which is amazingly intact) and full size plans with very detailed instructions. The kit has never been started. NOTE: the original air tires rotted off the hubs; I have replaced them with properly sized wooden wheels. NOTE: inventoried and missing the following: round wooden dowel for the engine cylinder, rubber lubricant, small round aluminum 'noise maker' pieces and small metal washers for the prop shaft. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and plans included.

NOTE: the plans have a small amount of adult writing on them. Never started and complete. These aircraft were common in the 1930s when the sport of free-flight model airplanes reached it's zenith. It was not uncommon for these models to fly for 45 minutes or more on rubber power alone - many flew out of site, and it became common practice to write your name, address and phone number on the covering tissue. 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.
