Lindberg Motorized P.T. Boat (PT Boat) by Paul Lindberg, 1/60, 701M-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

Sold   

Early hardbox issue from the 1950s. Fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork. Very large and nicely detailed kit that includes an electric motor, battery holder, contacts and three-prop drive for operation in water. The rudders are adjustable also. NOTE: this kit has been started. The torpedo tubes and rear hatch and vents have been assembled. This was done with Ambroid (wood glue), so the torpedo tubes have fallen completely apart. There is no other assembly and no painting. NOTE: missing the small switch lever (easily made from stock plastic). Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, flags, decals, electric motor, contacts, metal prop shafts, stanchions and antenna. Includes instructions. This kit has a fascinating history. It was originally produced by Varney in 1944 as a multi-media model. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull and cardstock deck but all injection molded tenite deck parts and details. That made it one of the first US ship kits to have extensive injection molded parts. But the world was not ready for this type of kit and dealers were hesitant to carry it - which resulted in low sales. Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he went to an injection molded hull, colorful cardstock 'wood' deck and all polystyrene parts for the first Lindberg issue. The second issue was all plastic with the metal stanchions and hand rails. The third Lindberg issue - and that is this kit-was motorized and had metal antenna and stanchions.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine by Paul Lindberg, 704

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Sold   

Rare first issue hardbox with script Lindberg logo. 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 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 Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg, such as the box painting for the Nautilus here. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut it's own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is not known but it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
