Tamiya M60A2 Remote Control Motorized, 1/35, MT238

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$129   

Rare. Tamiya's early armor models were the finest works of the mold maker's art and the very top of that line had push-button remote control and dual electric motor operation. This is one of those kits, featuring factory-assembled, all-metal gear box with two RE-14 electric motors, hand-held remote control, factory wired switch and control unit, metal hardware and a very well detailed model kit of this excellent US tank design. Never started and inside it is like new. Never started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Decals are still in the factory sealed bag also and are in 'near mint' condition, as are the instructions. The box displays better than 'very good' but is graded a such because there is some side corner wear not visible in the photo; nothing serious, but certainly visible when you look from the side.

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.

Very rare. Large 1/28 scale motorized kit with many working features. A factory-assembled metal gear box with nylon gears is driven by a common FA-130 motor.

Factory glue is included as well as all running hardware and lights. Please note that KSN did not furnish the motor with the kit. Features hidden battery compartment (where the real engine would be), moving rudder, elevator, ailerons and wing flaps and an opening canopy. The kit has never been started. Inside it is just as it left the factory. The small parts, gearbox, lights and glue are still factory sealed. The plastic parts that were factory sealed are still sealed in the original clear bags; the few large parts that were never sealed (wings and fuselage) are inventoried compete. The checkerboard cardboard presentation material and large full-color card showing aircraft and famous pilots is in very good condition. Includes instructions and decals in 'very good++' condition. Please NOTE that the box displays slightly better than 'very good' but is graded as such because there is a tape tear on the left short side.
