In addition to being an iconic racing aircraft, the Comet was a highly influential design in other areas: it was the first British aircraft with retractable landing gear, flaps and variable-pitch propellers. It would also go on to set more records as a mail plane and serve as an inspiration for planes like the de Havilland Mosquito bomber.
This model includes retractable landing gear, spinning propellers, opening cockpit with room for 2 minifigures, a pilot and a copilot. 414 pieces.
