The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg created plans for stick and tissue flying models that were published in popular modeling magazines in the 1930s. During this time, he marketed wooden flying kits, asking builders to request that your local dealer carry "The Lindberg Line" of models. When plastic kits first appeared, Paul Lindberg and a Mr. Olsen founded O-Lin models, purchased the unsuccessful Varney molds for the Fleet Sub, PT Boat, LST and PT-17. After mold modification, they entered production and quickly cut new molds such as the P-80, Seabee and more. The association with Mr. Olsen did not last long, and Paul Lindberg took over or bought out the molds, thus starting the famous plastic "Lindberg Line". The first box art was simply carry over from O-Lin. Early O-Lin artwork was simple and two -color. However, Ray Gaedke did some late O-Lin boxes such as the Corsair, which was also used by Lindberg. Gaedke artwork was colorful and bold, and Paul Lindberg wasted no time in having Gaedke make the new artwork for the Lindberg Line.

Since the kit was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with a sofa, four seats and instrument panel, optional position landing gear and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started.

Rest Models Heinkel He-112 V6 Kanonenvogel Spanish Civil War Ground Attack Aircraft, 1/48, RM4809

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$225   

Very, very rare, superb model and the only kit of this subject in any scale. Features very highly detailed cockpit, excellent landing gear and detailed wells, separately molded ailerons, wing flaps and rudder, optional opened or closed cockpit hatch, painting guide and full Condor Legion markings.

The fuselage is cast in one part with the opening for the fuselage where the wing goes. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. He-112 Prototype V6 had a fascinating history during the Spanish Civil War. It was specially modified with a 20mm cannon firing through the screw axis. It was initially flown by 'private' Luftwaffe pilots and saw significant action. However, Wilhelm Balthasar destroyed an armored train with the V6 on March 16, 1937. The fact that made this amazing is the Balthasar was an observer in an He-45C. When he knew of the attack, he convinced the commander that he was an expert pilot and begged to take the V6 up to attack the train. On his way back he destroyed a tank and won an award for his efforts. He was later appointed commander of an experimental department consisting of three He-45C and the one He-112V6. The task of this unit was recon, artillery spotting and ground attack. During these flights the V6 destroyed more tanks and was very successful.
