VMC Comet 2 - 24" Wingspan
Based on the original KeilKraft Comet kit from the late 1940s, designer Chris Long had brought modern CAD techniques to the kit with a newly drawn plan and much more accurate laser cut parts.
The Comet 2 has a 3/16" hardwood (basswood or obeche) laser cut fuselage which must be sanded to form a streamlined profile.
The polyhedral wing parts are laser cut from 3/16" balsa wood which again must be sanded into an aerofoil - this is true for the 1/8" tail parts too.
Plywood dihedral braces help you to align the wings and and balsa saddle parts give additional strength to the mounting points for the wings and tailplane.
Although assembly is very fast and relatively simple, please be aware that there is A LOT OF SANDING TO DO!
Make sure to wear a dust mask and have a vacuum cleaner handy to periodically clear the dust from your workbench.
Flying the Comet (and any chuck glider from this era) is a bit of an art form as there is a very fine line to tread between getting the model balanced correctly, launched well and built as light as possible.
Needless to say, there's hours of fun to be had!
- Plotted plan with annotated instructions
- Precision laser-cut parts in hardwood, balsa and ply
