$55   

Very rare and highly detailed kit. Owen Gordon, of Fair Lawn NJ made a series of pre-fabricated wood and metal tank kits in 1985.

The kit has never been started. Half of the metal fittings and small wood parts are all still in the factory sealed bags. One bag of metal fittings was open, and it was inventoried complete and the parts put in a zip lock. The bigger wood parts were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions and plans.

Comet Bell Airacomet P-59A, 1/64, H4

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG-

$38   

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 manufactures issued blocks of wood and a plan - the famous (or infamous) 'Make Wood Look Like Plane' kits. A few manufactures 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 P-59 features 3D cut fuselage, 2D cut wings, pre-cut engine block, color decals, finished wheels, printwood, full template sheet of cardstock, wood stock and a very large and detailed sheet of drawings including detailed construction steps. 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.
