1/48 513-98 Lindberg Republic F-91 Thunderceptor / XF-91
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc++
This a late 1950s issue and the second Lindberg boxing of this kit. This one has great Ray Gaedke artwork and is by far the most collectible. The box has factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs and no tags or tape, or marks from either. There is very light wear as the only flaw. Inside, it is molded in the correct gloss silver and clear and includes drop tanks, rockets, display stand and full landing gear (which can easily be represented as 'in flight' if you wish). Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.
