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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Early hardbox issue from the mid 1950s with fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork. Very large and nicely detailed kit for that time that includes an electric motor, battery holder, contacts and three-prop drive for water operation with adjustable rudders. Molded in gloss gray plastic with metal stanchions and metal hand rail still sealed in the original 'krinkle' plastic bag. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals, flag sheet and 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 but the round Lindberg logo. The third Lindberg issue (this kit) has the square logo and is motorized.
