Undercarriage

The Comet has a retracting undercarriage assembly which was quite unique for 1934. We have copies of the original drawings and the new assemblies are taking shape. New springs to the original specifications have been specially made for us by Alberta Springs from Colchester, top leg parts machined by N&B engineering and the bottom parts by one of our restoration team members Brian Woodward.
