Default BOAC Airways Comet 4 Metal display model 18 1/2"L x 19" wide Westway? Aluminum?

Greetings All,

This BOAC Airways Comet 4 Metal display model 18 1/2"L x 19" wide Westway? Aluminum model appeared in one of my searches today and thought that I would share it with the board:

BOAC Airways Comet 4 Metal Display Model 18 1 2"L x 19" Wide Westway Aluminum | eBay

Please kindly note that I personally do not know this seller, nor am I marketing/promoting their model in anyway.

Just thought that some on this board might have interest in seeing it.

Regards to all, Robert

Thank you for the link. I also noticed this model and it's on my watch list. The model is too beat up for my taste however. Especially the nose looks like someone fired with a gun on it (last two pics). I'll definately pass ...

Hi Scipio,

It's defiantly in very rough shape.

ditto for me too. but interested to see what it goes for. shipping and import charges alone would add $150 minimum. as for restoration????????? you can buy a comet 4 from westway for around £350 gbp. but it be resin, not metal.

It could be a Peter Nelson model.

Here it is fully restored.
I already have a BOAC Comet so I decided to do something different....

That's a beautiful model. A nice clean looking colour scheme.
