Hello Steve, I want to thank JeffMac for posting this plan and you for putting it up!!! I purchased this kit around 1950 - 52 and never built it. Truthfully, its kind of ugly and I recall that put me off building when I was a kid of 10 or 12. The kit never got built and it sat in various places around my workbench for years. I remember pulling it out some years later before it finally disappeared and saw the plan paper had begun to crumble. Comet used the cheapest newsprint paper available and that stuff doesn't hold up. Anyway, that kit is the one missing kit from my "gotta have" list of plans that I had kits of when I was growing up. I thought I would never see see it again as the kit was obviously not a popular one and Comet only offered it for a very few years, then dropped it from the line. After all this time any plan of it would have surely turned to dust -literally. But here it is!!! My Comet plan collection is COMPLETE! :) Rufus

The Comet Skyrocket recently won a contest in the UK (June, 2019) so is obviously a very competitive design. But Oh, that wing mount! A simple wire saddle supporting a 1/32in ply platform for the trailing edge is all you need. Ideal set-up for tip-up wing DT, too.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
