Lindberg Caravelle French Jet Airliner - With Full Interior and Engines and Transparent Fuselage and Cowling - Cellovision Issue, 1/96, 553-149

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Poor

$169   

From the 1950s. First issue of this rare kit with beautiful Ray Gaedke box art of an Air France Caravelle departing over downtown Paris. The model is loaded with unique features. It can be built as a large scale non-visible or visible model with full interior. Features one clear fuselage 1/2 and one clear engine cowl, complete passenger compartment and cockpit, mens/womens bathrooms, passengers, pilots and hostess, retracting landing gear, movable wing flaps, moving control surfaces, jet engine, boarding ramp and display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Includes Air France decals. Please NOTE: the box looks much better than the grade, but is graded as 'poor' because it has been cut on the back along one long and one short side, as well as having other general wear and shorter closed tears. The later hardbox issue included United Air Lines, since United once bought the Caravelle for North American routes.

Lindberg Auburn 1935 Supercharged 851 Boattail Speedster (Ex-Pyro), 1/24, 369

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$39   

Nice older kit from ex-Pyro molds; originally from the late 1950s. Molded in white, clear and chromed plastic with real rubber tires. Features detailed engine, hinging/opening hood and 'good' interior detail for that time. The 1935 Auburn weighed 4200 lbs and was one of the few cars of that time to have hydraulic brakes. Power came from a 150hp (@4000) supercharged engine with three inch exhaust pipes. That easily sped the car to over 100 mph! Ab Jenkins set a record with a stock issue 851 at Bonneville Salt Flats in July of 1935, and became the first one to pilot a stock car for over 12 hours at an average of over 100 mph.

Lindberg Concord Stagecoach (Wells Fargo Overland ) - with Figures and Horses, 1/16, 70351

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$89   

Still factory sealed. Out of production. Very large (1/16 scale)classic kit measures 2.5 feet long when assembled. Very highly detailed model can build to a wonderful mantle piece. Includes 0ver 250 parts - coach with full interior, full suspension, luggage rack, horses, harnesses, whip, metal chain, luggage trunks and 6 figures. The figures are beautifully molded and detailed. NOTE: Lindberg packed this in a huge box - much larger than needed, so shipping can be expensive depending on your location. If you want the parts removed from this box and repacked, it would cost much less to ship. For overseas orders this is absolutely necessary. For USA customers the same is true and also the USPS shipping calculator has proven to be unreliable with big box sizes (near balloon rate) so please ask and as always- we will be happy to double check.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$28

The model includes spoked wheels, chassis with steering linkage, gas tank and suspension details, full engine, removable hood, complete interior and parts molded in color.

Lindberg British Battleship Hood Motorized, 1/400, 763M-500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$115   

Rare motorized 1st issue. Could easily be made RC with today's small components. This is a large motorized kit that sails well. One electric motor drives the ship on a course that you pre-set - figure 8, straight or circle. While sailing at a good rate of speed, the four main turrets slowly swing from port to starboard together and the guns elevate. I remember sailing mine for years before the batteries died in the middle of the lake. There is no assembly but NOTE: one davit is neatly painted. There is no other painting. It has been inventoried complete with all parts. Includes flag sheet, electric motor, running hardware and instructions.

The parts that were never sealed have been inventoried complete and includes decals, flag sheet and instructions.
