1/250 702-198 Lindberg LST - Landing Ship Tank
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+
Rare first Lindberg issue from the 1950s with Ray Gaedke artwork. The box has the correct first circle logo. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. This kit has a great history. It was originally produced by Varney in 1944. It was novel at the time as it had a wooden hull, cardstock but all injection molded tenite deck parts and details. When the early Varney aircraft and ship kits did not sell well, Gorden Varney sold the molds for the kit to O-lin (Olsen and Lindberg). O-Lin reworked the kit using a vacuform hull, cardstock deck, metal railings and tenite parts. When Lindberg took full control of O-lin, he modified the molds for a third time so the kit has metal railings and all other parts are injection molded. That is this model.
