Lindberg IJN I-53 Type C-3 Submarine With Kaitens - 58.5 Inches Long, 1/72, 70818

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+


Rare and long out of production. This giant kit features over 300 parts. Many people have converted it to remote control (R/C parts not furnished). The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box looks much better than the 'good+' grade but I have graded it as such because there is an approx 7" closed tear on one long side panel. Everything inside is still in factory-mint condition.

Lindberg Monitor and Merrimac with Diorama Seascape Base, 77257

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG


Still factory sealed but there is a moderate crush at the upper left. Very nice package with both kits and a plastic seascape battle display base. Merrimac measures just shy of 13 inches long and the Monitor measures 8.25 inches long. These are the two American Civil war ships that spelled the end of the wooden ship age. In March of 1862, the Merrimac put to sea to raise the Union Blockade off the St. James. There she sank the Cumberland and Congress. The Monitor, the Union's only ironclad and the first turret ship, was rushed to the scene. The epic battle between the two iron-clad ships ended in a draw, with the Merrimac suffering a little more damage than the Monitor. The Merrimac was blown up to avoid capture; the Monitor sank in a gale in 1862.

Lindberg Tuna Clipper 'Ann' (Gulf Star) - (Ex-Pyro and Life-Like), 1/58, 70896

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++


From quality Pyro molds dating from the early 1960s. Modeled from the two Tuna Clippers (Gulf Star and Sea Magic) of the Avondale Marine Ways Company of New Orleans. Hard-working tuna boats and crews roamed the ocean year-around in a dangerous business. Many vanished without a trace. The Gulf Star was wrecked on a reef off Peru. Model has a hull length of 13.5 inches. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Lindberg Supermarine Spitfire IX, 1/72, 406-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Rare mid 1950s hardbox first issue. Box art is by Ray Gaedke. Very nicely molded kit for that time with raised panel lines, full landing gear and doors, separately molded cannon barrels, pilot bust, underwing radiators and a display stand. Very early issue when the instructions show you using a straight pin for the prop shaft! Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Decals are for the colorful box art aircraft.

Lindberg Messerschmitt Me-109F - Bf-109F, 1/72, 407-29

Lindberg Boeing Trainer PT-17 Kaydet - (ex-Varney / ex-O-Lin), 1/48, 508-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair


Rare 1950s hardbox issue with colorful Ray Gaedke boxart. This kit has a long and interesting history. These molds were originally created by Varney in the 1940s - please see the article on this website about this. The Varney PT-17 was one of the first injection molded plastic aircraft kits produced in the USA. O-Lin, of which Paul Lindberg was one-half of, purchased the Varney molds and released the kit after slight mold modifications. When O-Lin became Lindberg, the kit was released once - this kit - with the minimally modified molds. After this release, the molds were modified more significantly. Molded in glossy yellow, black and clear. The model has not been started. It is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The parts are the correct early issue. The box displays better than the 'fair' rating but is graded a such to due to heavy wear at the right side of the box top and missing litho along the entire right short side.

Lindberg T-55 or Ti-67 Israeli - Soviet / DDR / Israel, 1/35, 6001

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good-


Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box concave. Nicely detailed kit from 1989. With optional parts for the Ti-67, flexible treads and decals for three different tanks.

Lindberg Japanese Bomber 'Betty' G4M2, 1/72, 576-200

Lindberg Motorized German Battleship Bismarck 1st Issue, 1/350, 762M-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG


Hard-to-find 1st issue with Ray Gaedke box art. Large 25.5 inch long classic kit with motorized propeller drive, automatically rotating main turrets with elevating main guns and she can be programmed for straight, figure eight or circle sailing patterns. One of the nice things about this model is that it all works well! I had endless fun with mine in a lake. Never started. The small parts are still in factory sealed bags. The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes decals, flag sheet and instructions.

Lindberg Sea Witch Clipper Sailing Ship (ex-Marx), 1/96, 813

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-


1979 issue that used the original Marx Sea Witch/Swordfish molds. A beautiful and well detailed model with over 500 parts that measures 33 inches long when assembled. The world's largest toy manufacture, Louis Marx, spared no expense in this early 1950s entry into the growing field of plastic models. The model claims to the first time that anyone could build a museum-quality large ship at home. The claim is correct since the kit pre-dates the Revell 1/96 Cutty Sark. Full hull kit features complete deck fittings, extensive standing and running rigging instructions, optional billowing sails (in 'excellent' condition'), crew members, rigging thread and metal chain. It is molded in several colors just like the original Marx issue. The kit has never been started. All the parts that Lindberg sealed from the factory are still in the factory sealed bags. The hull, stands and mast/yard tree were never factory sealed, but I have inventoried them complete. Includes flag sheet, transfers and excellent instructions.

Lindberg Diesel Tug (Sea Going Diesel Tugboat Despatch No. 9 of Standard Oil) - (ex-Pyro), 1/76, 77221

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint


Still factory sealed. From quality Pyro molds. Measures 13.5 inches long when assembled and very nicely detailed for that time. Could be motorized and made R/C (as some other releases were, but you must supply the hardware for this issue). Despatch No.9 was built by the Tampa Marine Corporation in Florida in 1945 for the fleet of tugs operated by Standard Oil of California in Sacramento Bay and the San Joaquin River.

Lindberg Convair XFY-1 - Vertical Take-Off Fighter, 1/48, 526-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+


Dramatic Ray Gaedke artwork. Rare early issue from the 1950s. The Convair VTO was a Navy program for a high performance zero-length take off fighter. The aircraft flew well but transition from vertical/horizontal and back was tricky. This, combined with the performance of the new jets signaled the end of the program in 1955. Comes with boarding ladder. Molded in the correct high gloss 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.

Lindberg Curtiss Goshawk F11C-2 - (F11C2), 1/48, 460-50
