D.H.88 Comet – Period Brass model & display stand 

A period model of the D.H.88 Comet in brass with an oak wooden & brass stand.

I have not cleaned or attempted to polish it, but have left it “as found”

The de Havilland DH.88 Comet is a British two-seat, twin-engined aircraft built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was developed specifically to participate in the 1934 England-Australia MacRobertson Air Race from the United Kingdom to Australia.

Three Comets were produced for the race, all for private owners at the discounted price of £5,000 per aircraft. The aircraft underwent a rapid development cycle, performing its maiden flight only six weeks prior to the race. Comet G-ACSS Grosvenor House emerged as the winner. Two further examples were later built. The Comet went on to establish a multitude of aviation records, both during the race and in its aftermath.

Quite a simple piece, no frills, but good for that......it has a wingspan of around 7 inches (18 cms) and it displays well.
