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.

SNAP Combat Jeep And Trailer - With 3 GIs - (ex Revell), 1/40, 148-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare model from the original 1950s Revell "S" Issue molds. Very well detailed featuring rotating wheels, radio, jerry cans, detailed chassis and suspension, tilting windshield, driver/soldier and general figure, detachable trailer with rotating wheels, generator, cable reel, packs, tool box and more. Molded in olive drab plastic. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. These molds must have had a very interesting history. The molds were cut in 1955 or 1956, either at Adams or by one of Revell's contractors. It appeared to be part of the Adams/Revell 1/40 line but Adams never issued the kit. UPC (Universal Power Master) had use of these molds in the 1960s are perhaps the early 1970s; however, the molds were probably in Japan as most if not all the UPC production occurred there. Around this point, SNAP plastics of Hillside, New Jersey acquired this kit along with many of the other ex-Adams military molds. While the UPC issues say 'Made in Japan' the SNAP issues say nothing of the origin of the manufacture; so perhaps they were made in New Jersey. Things get even more interesting with the Life-Like issue. How Life-Like came across the molds is unfortunately unknown but it may have been in a bulk-purchase of molds from SNAP since there were in the same general part of the country. This is simply conjecture, however.

Aerotech Gotha P60A - P.60 - By March Models, 1/72, AT72002

Resin Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed and the only model kit that I can find of this subject. This is a quality model molded in high-definition resin with 50 photoetched parts, 12 white metal parts, two clear parts and decals for multiple aircraft. The Historical Background by Dan Johnson of Luft 46 website: During August 1944 the Gotha Aircraft Company took over the job of series production of the Horten brothers' Ho IX all-wing fighter, which would be known as the Horten Ho 229. On receiving the design data, Gotha engineers found some areas for improvement. The Ho 229 had limited space for installing new equipment or adding more crew members. More importantly, since the engines were to be enclosed in the wing, different engines could not be fitted without extensive aerodynamic testing, which was not possible time-wise considering the worsening war situation for Germany. The Gotha designers proposed an alternate all-wing design to the RLM in January 1945 which used many of the construction techniques as in the Horten aircraft but had the advantage of being able to be modified with new equipment and engines without changing the flying characteristics greatly. The basic construction was to be a welded steel tube frame covered by plywood and "Formholz", a moulded and formed wood sheathing. The Gotha Go P.60A was a flying wing that was powered by two turbojet engines near the rear of the wing centre section, one above the wing and one below. The advantage was this arrangement allowed any jet engine to be fitted, plus maintenance would be easier due to accessibility with the engines in the exposed nacelles. In the designed Go P.60A, two BMW 003A-1 with 800 kp (1763 lbs) of thrust were to be used at first. Three fuel tanks were enclosed within the wings, one 1200 litre (317 gallon) tank in each outer wing panel and one 1200 litre (317 gallon) tank behind the cockpit. The pressurized and armored cockpit, located in the extreme nose, held two men who were in a prone (lying down) position. The prone position had the advantage of allowing the crew to withstand G-forces better, and was researched in the Berlin B9 test aircraft. This system was also used in the DFS 228 high altitude reconnaissance aircraft and the Henschel Hs 132 jet powered dive bomber. The main landing gear legs retracted to the front and rotated 90 degrees to lay flat. The nose gear was offset to the port side and retracted to the rear. To cure stall during landing, the wing leading edge was fitted with hydraulically activated split flaps. There were also a pair of conventional split flaps mounted at the rear which were installed with a 15 degree forward sweep and also could be used as air brakes. The other three types of control were: *Elevators/Elevons - located in the inner trailing edge of the wing and were provided with auxiliary trim tabs*Ailerons - located in the outer trailing edge of the wing and had internally balanced control flaps*Drag Rudders - located in the wing tips at a 18 degree angle (to the aircraft centre line), they were designed to be used during high speed manoeuvres. Armament was to be four MK 108 30mm machine cannon (150 rounds inner cannon, 175 rounds outer cannon) for the Höhenjäger (High Altitude Fighter) version, two MK 103 30mm machine cannon (175 rounds per gun) for the Zerstörer (Heavy Fighter) version and two MK 108 30mm machine cannon and two RB 50/18 cameras for the Aufklärer (Reconnaissance) version. The Höhenjäger (High Altitude Fighter) version could also to be fitted with a Walter HWK 509B rocket engine to increase the ceiling and climb rate, and was thus designated the Gotha Go P.60A/R. One of the main criticisms of the Go P.60A was the difficulty for the crew to escape while in flight. One solution was to mount both jet engines below the wing, and this proposed version was to be known as the Go P.60A-2. Unfortunately, this configuration reduced the roll rate in combat and was eliminated. Although further versions were to have some sort of ejection device for the crew, the war's end prevented the completion of the Gotha Go P.60A.

Amodel Tu-128 Fiddler, 1/72, 72100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

At long last, an injection molded model of this long-range Soviet interceptor. Nicely detailed with over 100 pieces, all recessed surface detail, very good cockpits, separately molded ailerons, trailing edge flaps, elevators & rudder, detailed landing gear, four K-80 missiles and more. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The giant Fiddler is still the world's largest fighter aircraft and was designed to range far and wide to hunt down B-52 bombers. The Soviet Union had such a large northern border that it could not be covered with the existing range surface-to-air missiles and the short-ranged fighters available. Instead of leaving large gaps unprotected, PVO opted for defending the entire front but loosely; the Fidder was the result of this policy. The original design for this task was the La-250, which was unsuccessful and Lavochkin's last aircraft. The lessons learned helped develop the Tu-128. The large fuel load was carried internally while all the missiles were carried on wing pylons. The AA-5 "Ash" was one of the most powerful air-to-air missiles at that time. The aircraft was first shown publicly in 1961. 198 were built and production ended in 1970. Fiddler was not a dogfighter or highly sophisticated but was reliable. The only 'combat' experienced by this type was in shooting down NATO reconnaissance balloons. Fiddler had a very long service life, being replace in 1990 by the much more capable Mig-31.
