Lindberg Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 521-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc


1950s rare issue. Ray Gaedke hardbox artwork has excellent color and gloss. This is a large scale (1/48) 'theoretical' Mig-19. The aircraft never existed in this configuration. However, Aurora made one almost just like it; it is believed that they both used the same magazine drawing as the basis for the Mig models. Molded in high gloss silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. After the war, Lindberg and Olsen had a strong hand in early United States injection molded kit development. Please see the article located on this website about early USA plastic kit manufactures.

Sunbeam Bristol Britannia (ex-Frog) - Soviet Military Transport, 1/96

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


Many Frog molds made their way to the ex-Soviet Union, probably in the 1960s. Of them, this one is perhaps the most interesting. This kit represented quite a research problem, but Mark Zandy has provided information from his Soviet kit collection. The manufacture is Jaroslavl Chemical Plant Lutch (Jaroslavl is a town on Volga river). Lutch can be translated as Ray, but Sunbeam is a better interpretation. Rovex sent this mould to USSR in 1977 in an agreement between Dunbee-Combex-Marx and Novoexport, but the Bristol Britannia didnt receive the Novo kit number and this kit had been produced only for the Russian market. The price was 2 rubles, which I am told was expensive at the time. The number on the box OCT 17-296-75 refers to the number of an industrial standard for plastic toys production that was established in 1975. The box states "assembly kit of a transport plane" and it is clearly in USSR military markings. The scale is stated as 1/72, which is incorrect. Inside the box is the Frog model of the Britannia, which is 1/96. What the Soviets were doing with a model of the Britannia in Soviet military markings is unknown to be. There are no instructions or decals, but it was easy to determine that the kit is missing one propeller retainer (easy to make or can be left out as it does not show) and is missing four propeller blades. The kit also has a clear windshield and full landing gear, gear doors, etc. The kit has never been started. Lutch received 4 ex-Frog moulds. For the domestic market kits were numbered: No. 196 Hawker Tempest V (bagged), No. 197 P-47D-25 Thunderbolt (bagged) , No. ??? Bleriot XI (bagged) , No. 214 Bristol Britannia (you can see this number on the box: Article Jr 085 1 214). At least two different boxes were issued for the Britannia.
