Lindberg Boeing Trainer PT-17 Kaydet - (ex-Varney / ex-O-Lin), 1/48, 508-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$55   

Rare 1950s hardbox issue with colorful Ray Gaedke boxart. This kit has a long and interesting history. These molds were originally created by Varney in the 1940s - please see the article on this website about this. The Varney PT-17 was one of the first injection molded plastic aircraft kits produced in the USA. O-Lin, of which Paul Lindberg was one-half of, purchased the Varney molds and released the kit after slight mold modifications. When O-Lin became Lindberg, the kit was released once - this kit - with the minimally modified molds. After this release, the molds were modified more significantly. Molded in glossy yellow, black and clear. The model has not been started. It is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The parts are the correct early issue. The box displays better than the 'fair' rating but is graded a such to due to heavy wear at the right side of the box top and missing litho along the entire right short side.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 1/300, 70884

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$18   

Still factory sealed. Crafthouse reissue, from original molds. 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 about 1/300 and it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. This kit has a fascinating history. 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 Lindbergs first Nautilus issue. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut their own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin.

Hard-working tuna boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wrecked on a reef off Peru.
