Still factory sealed but the seal has split at the left side. 1969 two-piece box issue utilizing the original Ray Gaedke artwork from the 1950s issue. Very nicely molded kit. Includes rigging photos for wire placement. Please note that although the instructions show special short 'spreader bars' to use with wing rigging, they did not provide them.

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 manufacturers.

Lindberg Douglas A4D-1 Skyhawk - (A-4), 1/48, 529-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$52   

Rare early issue of the Prototype Skyhawk from the mid 1950s. This is the smallest box that anyone has dared place a 1/48 scale A-4 in and the classic box art is by Ray Gaedeck Box. For some reason, this issue is rarer than the other Lindberg kits of that time. This model represents the very early Skyhawk, which is no surprise; Lindberg, like Aurora, often tried to be 'first to market' and did not hesitate to use prototypes for kits. Features detailed jet engine, opening inspection panel, pilot and ejection seat, opening canopy, full landing gear, centerline drop tank, wing rockets and display stand. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box is graded 'good' because you can see the remains of tape right down the center, just foward of the cockpit.

Original 1950s issue with fantastic Ray Gaedke box art. In 1931, Post and Gatty flew the Vega 'Winnie Mae' around the world in 8 days, 15 hours and 8 minutes for a new world record.

Lindberg North American F-86 Sabre Jet - First Issue, 1/48, 505

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$48   

Very rare first issue with the Lindberg 'Script Cirle' logo, the early 'small box' and no price extension. From the mid 1950s. The side says "Formerly O-Lin Products." Features dramatic Ray Gaedke box art, pilot and ejection seat, two piece canopy, full landing gear, two wing drop tanks, 8 wing-mounted rockets, teardrop-based display stand and decals for the very colorful box art aircraft (including all stripes). Molded in silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The decals also have the 'Script Circle' logo and the instructions have the script and rectangle logos. Please note that the instructions show a two piece pilot figure and a sub-floor under the seat; this issue of this model never had a two piece pilot (just a one piece) and the sub-floor was never part of the model. The earlier O-lin issue and the FJ had the two piece pilot, and Lindberg did eventually correct the instructions for the F-86. These kind of errors were very common on early Lindberg kits.
