At last!! A modern 1/72 kit of the Comet!!

I wonder if that explains why I saw some people taken photos of Grosvenor House at Shuttleworth a few weeks ago.

That really does look very nice Csaba. If it turns as good as the CAD looks then you should be onto a winner.

Don't know anything about the manufacturer, has any body any experience with them?

If it's as good as the pictures put me down for two.

SBS currently produce resin and turned brass add-ons for aircraft and military vehicles which are if a very high standard. Csaba is a very nice chap who is really enthusiastic for the hobby.

I think a bottle of good whisky may help, as he does like the odd drink or two.

Well, Csaba is realy a nice guy and loves a stiff drink or two. Every year we have a 'Palinka party' at the Mosonmagyarovar Makett show in Hungary. Hopefully he will have his Comets ready there around the 18th of April as I definitely will take a few.. if not all of them :-) For those unwary of what palinka is, It's the Hungarian 'schnapps' and Csaba always turns up with a nice selection of home brewed Plainka... I can't wait :-)

I'd be very happy with a 48th one too :bounce:

Generally I have ordered several items direct and never had any issue at all. As others above have said his quality is top rate and he has some interesting items to offer.

Hi

Years ago .... in w.h.smith ... there was a magazine with a readers photo taken by a personal camera of a comet in raf camo.

now i wish i bought that magazine, as i can never find details, only ever came across a whif on the net of one in raf camo.

cheers

Very excited to see this kit arrive. For those wanting to read up on the racing history and the early preservation attempts of the subject I can recommend Dh88: the Story of De Havilland's Racing Comets by David Ogilvy.
