This wishlist is a companion to my updated de Havilland DH-106 Comet 3/4 mould review, which looks in detail at what has been made and the necessary compromises when you're looking at a Comet in 400 scale.
As I understand it the only mould that remains is the version with the wing fuel tanks so I will focus on the Comet 3, 4 and 4C in this review and ignore the 4B.
Comet 3 G-ANLO
I'm surprised that Aeroclassics didn't make the Comet 3 in its original version before it was fitted with the 4B wing. As you can see the BOAC livery was applied but with the older white tail version of the scheme:
East African Airways Comet 4
EAA operated a trio of Comet 4s for around a decade. See:
Egyptian Comet 4Cs
Nine Comet 4Cs served well into the 1970s with first Misrair, then United Arab Airlines and latterly Egyptair (all the same airline obviously). They only crashed four of them, which is quite good for the airline at the time! For more info on their liveries see:
Sudan Airways Comet 4Cs
Sudan Airways acquired two Comet 4Cs including the last Comet built.
Kuwait Airways Comet 4Cs
Kuwait Airways was another late Comet customer acquiring a pair to prepare it for its future Trident operations.
Saudi Royal Flight Comet 4C
A tragic aircraft that has been called the world's first executive jet this Comet 4C certainly looked awesome.
Dan Air Comet 4s and 4Cs
Dan Air of course acquired a lot of Comets and Aeroclassics has made a pair of Comet 4Bs but no Comet 4s or 4Cs. That means they've also only covered two of the three schemes worn by the type too.
Royal Air Force Comet C.4
The C.4 with full Royal Air Force Transport Command titles has been made but not the shorter titles below:
