  1. Beeing uttlerly undiscerning I add another one to the pile... Enter Heritage Aviations de Havilland Comet racer: The D.H. 88 Comet kit is a 100% Polystyrene-free resin kit with vacuformed clear parts and white metal detail parts. Decals are included as well. All well packed in a sturdy box. The kit dates back to the previous owner of Heritage Aviation and thus is a bit older, which can be seen in the details and mold quality. Compared to newer resin kits this one looks to be "exciting". I purchased this kit some years ago but never picked myself up to start it (I shudder at the tought of the u/c assembly and the fuselage - see below). There are three seats included. Two were not 100% OK but one was very good and I recased it in resin (not shown). The lack of photoetch parts became unbearable to me at some time and I did new instrument panels in CorelDraw and had them etched by Peter Kormos (excellent guy! - see Tinyland.com). As said the castings are so-so. Some pin-holes and some larger ones... One of the biggest flaws is the fuselage which has very prominent steps from misaligned molds. I have the stron feeling that one side is longer than the other giving it a banana-like shape from above. At last I have made out a way to solve this in the years the kit rested in my stash. Wish me luck or better a broken leg so I can stay some weeks at home finishing all the started kits... ;-) Rene
