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 manufacturers.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass, 1/48, 510

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

Sold   

From 1954 or '55 and with Ray Gaedeke art. Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo on the box top and two long sides. Large-scale kit is molded in an incredible deep gloss blue and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and created many timeless classics. Although the early Lindberg kits were all ex-Olin, Lindberg continued the O-lin practice of placing large 1/48 scale kits in a very, very small box such as this kit.
