The De Havilland DH-88 Comet was designed to win the 1934 MacRobertson Air Race from England to Melbourne in Australia, the beautifully sleek Comet not only won this event but went on to set several records. Several Comets were built for the race but the striking scarlet "Grosvenor House" comet won comfortably in a time of 70 hours and 55 minutes. It would be fair to say that the DH-88 is probably the most stylish of the Golden Era racers, bearing in mind that most airforces were still flying bi-plane fighters at this time, the Comet, with it's ultra sleek lines and 255mph top speed was a glimpse of the future in the early 1930's, the construction techniques devloped for the DH-88 were later used on De Havillands most famous son.....the amazing Mosquito!
The Durafly DH-88 Comet is a faithful scale reproduction of this most elegant of race planes, it is constructed from tough EPO foam and is nicely painted in a deep scarlet, the final touch is courtesy of the pre-applied white waterslide decals, which help make this model really stand out both in the air and on the ground. The wing is removable for easy transportation and the huge canopy allows for easy & fast access to the Lipoly battery. The scale detail is typical Durafly quality and includes scale exhaust stubs, superbly molded cowls, purpose made spinners and counter rotating props.
This superbly priced kit is ideal for those pilots looking to use their own power train, especially the speed freaks and also those who want a hand launch version.
