    Release Date

    Hi Folks,
    short update. I am in the process of writing the instructions. Everything else is finished so far. Development time was around 6 month...sheesh
    Anyway, for now I'd like to be adventurous and pronounce that the kit will be available thru my website for a reasonable price at the beginning of october.

    Regards

    Jan, I greatly appreciate your effort to make an all-rigid interior structure of thick cardboard. Will make up-scaling much easier. Big models should have a rigid interior. Also, less risk of distortion or misalignment.

    Leif.
    I would love to see you scaling the Comet maybe to 1/24 or 1/16. The kit was done completely in Illustrator, so it is vectorbased and scaling should not be a problem.

    If and when I get to it, you can be sure it'll be 1/16. That is my scale, I've decided. And it will have two electric engines, and perhaps even LED navigation & landing lights.

    If and when.... It would also depend on how much of detailed interior decorating I would have to do in comparison to what you've already done, and how good reference material there is. It is hard to pass by that sleek, all-red, all-civilian aircraft! If you've managed NOT to include any petal designs in the nose, spinners, etc., I would surely be hard tempted...

    Hi Leif,
    nope, haven't done that. I don't like these petals either. Spinners are made from cones and the nose has to be clear (vacuform or else) anyway.

    cannot see the pictures

    Hi guys
    For some reason I cannot see any of the pictures in this thread.
    Ido see them in other threads.
    Any idea what to do?
    The Comet is a favorite of mine and I sure want to see it
    I attach a picture of the Comet replica at Oshkosh 2003
    I have more if anyone is interested
