  Lindberg Model Kits

Lindberg WWII Navy Assault Airplane F6F Hellcat - Motorized, 1/48, 302M-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$95   

Still factory sealed but the seal is brittle and has multiple splits on the right side. This rare 1950s hardbox issue has fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork, an electric motor for the propeller and a base that hides the batteries underneath.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$54   

Rare early issue of the Prototype Skyhawk from the mid 1950s. This is the smallest box that anyone has dared place a 1/48 scale A-4 in and the classic box art is by Ray Gaedeck Box. For some reason, this issue is rarer than the other Lindberg kits of that time. This model represents the very early 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 is graded 'good+' because you can just see a very light stain on and below the drop tank.

Lindberg LST - Landing Ship Tank, 1/250, 702-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$145   

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.
