Chills, Thrills & Hills - It's The Ride of Your Life!The Comet is a fully operational HO Scale model of a wooden roller coaster. Designed for continuous operation as an accessory on a layout or as an intriguing novelty item, the Comet is the most realistic working roller coaster model on the market. It is sure to be one of the most talked about additions to your collection. Young and old alike will marvel at the exciting operation of an actual miniature coaster.
Modeled after the timeless and classic lines of a real wood coaster, this kit was designed by actual roller coaster engineers to a level of detail that must be seen to appreciate. After climbing the lift hill, the three-car train traverses the realistic course via gravity, just like its full-sized counterpart. The pre-colored plastic structure was designed with ease of assembly in mind. Most parts snap together, however some gluing is involved. The trains roll on precision brass wheels for consistent operation. The compact footprint of the Comet (12" x 27") makes it an unobtrusive yet attention-grabbing addition to any layout. The electric lift motor operates on the 12V accessory outlet on your transformer.
Additional items available in the future include optional working brakes for two-train operation, neon Comet sign, lighting kit and sound module.
