Lindberg Chesapeake Bay Skipjack Oyster Boat - (ex Pyro 'Carrie Price'), 1/60, 70850

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$52   

From 1989. Beautiful sloop model from ex-Pyro molds which were originally cut in the early 1960s. Measures 12 inches long when assembled and an excellent kit for that time. Features full hull, optional position keel, optional position cabin and deck hatch if you wish to super-detail the insides, full deck fittings, two detailed small boats, railings and life rings, furled sails (as shown on box art)and rigging material with a rigging diagram. Never started. Factory sealed parts bag with instructions. The Skipjack 'Carrie Price' is an exact replica of a typical small sailing vessel used along the Chesapeake Bay area to dredge for oysters. The center keel stabilizer could be pulled up for working in very shallow water. Until 1942 sail was the only power permitted for oyster dredging; after 1942 the state passed a law allowing power boats to be used. This lead to many skipjacks being converted to power and having the main mast cut down. Although its days are past, many yachtsmen restore and sail this beautiful small craft today.

Lindberg LST - Landing Ship Tank, 1/250, 702-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$135   

Rare first Lindberg issue from the 1950s with Ray Gaedke artwork. The box has the correct first circle logo. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This kit has a great history. It was originally produced by Varney in 1944. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull, cardstock but all injection molded tenite deck parts and details. When the early Varney aircraft and ship kits did not sell well, Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock deck, metal railings and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he modified the molds for a third time so the kit has metal railings and all other parts are injection molded. That is this model.
