Forward Thinking.

Retro Goodness.

 

Our Comet captures all of the jet-age looks and excitement of the sleek 1950’s design it’s based on.

With the included jigs, this delta wing can easily be built by those with experience in constructing built-up kits. Please note that this is NOT a beginner's kit - it requires building and flying experience to be successful.

 

 

 

 

Flying the Comet is a blast. It’s not overly quick and has pleasing flight characteristics that make it fun to fly. Even at low speeds it is well behaved and has no surprising tendencies.

 

 

 

 

 

A Retro, Delta Wing

Flying the Comet is a blast. It gives jet-like looks and stability without being overwhelmingly fast. Stability at all speeds make it easy to fly and easy to land.

 

WEB-LOCK Construction

There's nothing else like it. Build our wings, straight and true - with a minimum amount of fuss.

 

Premium USA Hardware

Included in each Old School Model Works kit is a premium hardware package. We only source our hardware from brand-name, USA manufacturers to guarantee the best quality.

 

Rugged Landing Gear

We include sturdy, pre-bent main gear, steerable nose gear assembly, and wheel collars. The 1/8" diameter wire can absorb quite a bit of abuse for those no-so-good landings.

 

Bottom hatch

Held in place with thumbscrew, this hatch gives you easy access to batteries or fuel.

 

Canopy

Also included is a clear, pre-formed plastic canopy.

We are sorry, but due to the size of the kits and high International shipping costs, we cannot ship them outside of the United States.
