Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear with the early O-lin style two-piece, teardrop-based stand. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg got his start in 1930s model aviation by designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft. His plans appeared in Popular Aviation magazine and he soon made a name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kit 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, and he help pioneer dramatic and colorful box artwork. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg was running the company and had the logo changed to his name. The first logo was circular, with 'Lindberg' in middle and 'Products' 'Incorporated' arched across the top and bottom. The second logo is the 'Yellow Square' that is on this kit. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and did this F-80C boxart as well.

Please note, the instructions have the circle logo and the rectangular logo, which was not uncommon for early Lindberg kits. This kit has not been started. 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.

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.

C&S ZMC-2 Metal Clad Blimp US Navy - 10 Inches Long - (ZMC2), 1/181

Wood Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


Rare 1930s model of this early US Navy Blimp. The ZMC-2 (Zeppelin Metal Clad 200,000 cubic foot capacity was the only successfully operated metal-skinned airship ever built. She was built at Naval Air Station Grosse Ile by The Aircraft Development Corporation of Detroit. ZMC-2 was operated from 1929 to 1941 by the U.S. Navy at Lakehurst, New Jersey base. She was scrapped in 1941. During her service ZMC-2 completed 752 flights for 2265 hours of flight time. This model was made by C&S Model Company, Trenton, New Jersey. They had quite a line of airships as I have seen their adds in very old Model Airplane News magazines.

All smaller parts are still wrapped in the factory tissue paper. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and paperwork included. The box displays much better than 'fair' but I have listed it as such because the end flaps are all missing one one side and other includes an end flap that is no longer connected. This kit is advertised on the short side panel as being 12 inches long; however, it measures 10 inches long on the plans.
