Lindberg 1940 Ford Custom Convertible - (ex Pyro), 1/32, 2120

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$17   

1979 John Steel artwork Lindberg issue from original Pyro molds. In the early to mid 1960s the Pyro company chose many of it's kit subjects based more on historical significance than popularity. Luckily for us, Pyro not only made these kits but did an excellent job for the time. The Pyro car models are based on the actual cars that Pyro engineers and designers had access to. The model includes tan and clear parts, detailed (molded) chassis and complete interior. Ideal for slot car conversion, and Pyro originally advertised it that way. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts and instructions.

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$89   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. The box top has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no price tags, no fading and no litho tears. General and even light wear are the only flaws. The model is molded in a stunning, high-gloss dark blue and clear plastic and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Dating early Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957. The early part number of '10' after the 5 would support such an early date, as Lindberg initially used sequential numbers. Please note that the instructions for this kit contain multiple factory mistakes! The pilot sits on a seat, not the 'board' shown in the instructions. The pitot tube is not even shown on the assembly page, but is present with the kit.

The box art a/c, VX777, was the aerodynamic prototype of the Mk. 2, and first flew on August 31, 1957.

Lindberg Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 521-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair++

$75   

Rare, earlier 1950s hardbox issue with fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork. This is a large scale (1/48) 'theoretical' Mig-19. The aircraft never existed in this configuration.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. NOTE: the box is graded 'fair++' because of significant general wear. 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'.
