Lindberg Junkers Ju-87B Stuka Dive Bomber, 1/48, 524-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Sold   

Late 1950s hardbox issue with Ray Gaedke box artwork. Please note that this is an early issue with the white circle on the rudder for the swastika. The swastika is not present on the box artwork. The factory removed the swastikas from the decal sheet since this issue was sold in countries where it was illegal. As a historical note, this kit was originally issued with the swastika on the box art and decals - Lindberg quickly recognized that this was poor publicity in the USA at that time and more importantly that the kit could not be sold in Europe. The second issue had the box art modified to remove the swastika but not the white circle and the offending markings were cut from the decal sheet. The third issue had the white circle removed from the box art and the decal sheet was redesigned to exclude it also. Molded in correct gloss medium green and clear, with the futuristic Lindberg 'V' shaped clear stand. For it's time, this was an excellent kit with fine panel and rivet detail. Features crew of two and seats, separately molded rudder and flap/ailerons, four small wing load bombs and a center bomb with 'swing arm' so that it would clear the prop in a dive. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Thanks to Dusty Rhodes for this information: The markings with this model, A5+HL, are from a -B2 (Trop.) captured intact in North Africa, 1941 and shipped to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It is still there today (2020). This may very well be the aircraft that Lindberg Skokie-based designers examined as a basis for this model.

Lindberg Douglas A4D-1 Skyhawk - (A-4), 1/48, 529-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

Sold   

From the mid 1950s. Early issue small narrow box with classic Ray Gaedeck Box Art. For some reason, this model is rarer than the other Lindberg kits of that time. This model represents the very early (probably prototype) Skyhawk, which is no surprise; Lindberg, like Aurora, often tried to be 'first to market' and did not hesitate to use prototypes for kits. Features detailed jet engine, opening inspection panel, pilot and ejection seat, opening canopy, full landing gear, centerline drop tank, wing rockets and display stand. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box displays slightly better than the 'good-' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the four sides where the box was taped shut more than once.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Molded in silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. 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.

This reproduction uses an expensive (and very convincing) copy of the original box. Inside is an amazing reproduction right down to the printed colors, design, size and functionality. This is a flying replica recreated down to the smallest detail of the wing fold design and colorful decoration. Like the original, it is ready to fly and includes the rubber band catapult.
