1/48 508-100 Lindberg Boeing Trainer PT-17 Kaydet
VG++ Injection Molded old
Rare 1950s hardbox issue with colorful Ray Gaedke boxart. This kit has a long and interesting history. These molds were originally created by Varney in the 1940s - please see the article on this website about this. It is believed that Varney kit, the PT-17, was the first (or one of the very first) injection molded plastic aircraft kits produced in the USA. O-Lin, of which Paul Lindberg was one-half of, purchased the Varney molds and released the kit in the original configuration. When O-Lin became Lindberg, the kit was released once - this kit - with the minimally modified molds. After this release, the molds were modified more significantly. Molded in bright yellow, black and clear. The model has not been started. It is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The parts are the correct early issue.
