Lindberg 1/48 British Pursuit Spitfire II, 518-79 plastic model kit

1/48 518-79 Lindberg British Pursuit Spitfire II

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Early hardbox issue from 1957 with classic Ray Gaedke artwork. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one small part, the prop shaft. Otherwise complete with all other 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. Dating Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or more likely in 1957 due to the rectangle logo. There is an earlier issue with the round logo and the same box art.
