The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts and plans. Please note that the plans and box are very fragile. The plans are about 95% complete but heavy taped on the back. The majority of the damage is small missing sections of the outer boarder. Comet, founded in 1929, 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.
