  Lindberg Model Kits

Lindberg 1930 Packard Sport Phaeton, 1/32, 6009-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$40   

Very nicely detailed hardbox first issue from 1967 and an excellent effort from Lindberg. Lindberg designed this and a few others to compete with the famous Pyro 1/32 Vintage Car series, carefully choosing popular subjects that Pyro did not cover. With this kit, Lindberg exceeded Pyro's best efforts in this scale. The model features a full rolling chassis build just like the real car, detailed engine, complete exhaust, driveline, detailed front and rear suspension, full interior, removable hood, separately molded 'whitewall' inserts, rear trunk rack and more. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions.

$26   

Still factory sealed. Very nicely detailed model featuring over 100 pieces, full engine and engine compartment detail, opening hood, detailed chassis with separately molded front suspension, rear suspension & driveline, full race interior with detailed dash, roll cage and instrument decals, full, large decal sheet and more. Molded in colored plastic, clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires.

Lindberg Vought F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/72, 427-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$25   

From the very early 1960s issue with Ray Gaedke artwork and the 39 cent price extension on the kit number. The original molds were cut by Trim Model Products in the early to mid 1950s. Trim sold them in bags or in hardboxes, but eventually decided to leave the plastic model business and sold the molds to Lindberg in the early 1960s. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Lindberg Jaguar XK 120 - Cellovision Issue, 1/32, 609-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$38   

late 1950s Cellovision issue with great Ray Gaedke artwork. This XK 120 is molded in light blue and features a one-piece body (excellent for slot car conversion), windshield, chassis/underpan, steering wheel and four wheels/tires. While a simple kit, it does have very good interior and realistic lines. Never started. The actual car has been inventoried with all plastic parts and instructions present. NOTE: missing decals. The Cellovision window is intact and in 'very good' condition and the trading card is also 'very good.' The scale is not given; I have approximated it as 1/32. The actual model is 5.125 inches long.

Lindberg Northrop SM-62 Snark Intercontinental Guided Missile, 1/48, 687

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$58   

The Snark was America's first Intercontinental Cruise Missile. Maximum speed was 650 MPH and the range was 6000 miles; guidance was by an internal celestial system and the warhead was nuclear. SAC units operated Snark from 1958 to the early 1960s. This kit features mobile launching platform, detailed missile, stair lift check stand, tractor, jet engine and more. Never started and the parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions.

Lindberg Destroyer Escort USS Rudderow DE-224, 1/300, 753-49

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$58   

From the late 1950s and features classic Ray Gaedke box artwork. This is the Cellovision issue with the clear panel at the left so the prospective buyer could view the detail. Very nicely detailed for the time, this full-hull large scale model features one piece hull, detailed deck, superstructure, primary and secondary armament and more. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing (1) of (2) tiny propellers. Otherwise complete with all other parts and includes decals and instructions.

Lindberg F-94C Starfire - First Logo Early Narrow Box Issue, 1/48, 519

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$44   

Rare and very early 1950s issue and likely the first Lindberg release. Features the first Lindberg round logo with the correct very small and narrow hardbox. It is amazing that a 1/48 Starfire even fits in the box, but it does if you pack it very carefully. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear and with the early Lindberg 'triangle' based two-piece display stand. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. The decals are in remarkable 'near mint' condition and the instructions are 'very good.' The box is only 'good-' because of scuff and wear shown and also masking tape placed neatly on all four corners and an additional piece at the center of each long side.

Lindberg JN-4D Curtiss Jenny, 1/48, 534-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$39   

1950s hardbox issue with beautiful artwork by the famous Ray Gaedke. The box has four solid corners and perfect color and gloss; the only flaws are very light general wear and a scuff & light crease on the lower long side. This was an excellent kit for that time and superior to the Aurora offering; the Lindberg model features a detailed engine with removable cowling, dual cockpit with instrument panels, rudder pedals, seats & control sticks, control horns & king posts, wheel chocks, full cockpit, two pilots, ground crewman, aircraft tail dolly and an illustrated rigging diagram on the back of the instructions. The model is molded in a stunning gloss yellow and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Lindberg Amphibious Duck - Cellovision Issue, 1/76, 757

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$145   

Still factory sealed and a very rare kit from the late 1950s that has fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork of a beach landing scene. For some reason this kit almost never shows up and was issued only once or twice. Why is did not stay in the lineup is a mystery; perhaps the molds were damaged beyond repair. The model is large scale and well detailed for that time. The Cellovision box is in 'excellent' condition which is most unusual. These are thin and frail boxes which are easily damaged. This one has like-new color and gloss, no crushing or creasing, an intact plastic window still securely glued into place and all short end flaps in place and factory glued shut. The trading card on the back is in very good condition as well. Flaws include light age spotting, light general wear and a very small 1/2" x 3/8" litho tear on the back near the right short side.

Lindberg US Navy Tanker - Fleet Oiler USS Mattaponi (AO-41) - Kennebec-Class Oiler), 1/520, 750-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$59   

Rare Cellovision issue kit from the late 1950s. Smaller scale but very nicely detailed kit of this famous and very active WWII Fleet oilier. The model has not been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Lindberg CV-12 USS Hornet Angled Deck Essex Class Aircraft Carrier - Motorized, 1/888, 776M-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$59   

Late 1950s kit with fantastic Ray Gaedke box artwork. This unusual kit of the modified angled deck Essex class includes a motor and is designed for operation in water. Measures 12 inches long when assembled and features below waterline detail with the correct four propeller and rudder arrangement (in case you want to build it as a static model), airwing of nicely detailed F4D Skyray, F8 Crusader jet aircraft and more. The ship has never been started but NOTE: the motor armature has the two end caps and metal laminations installed. There is no more assembly. Inventoried and NOTE: Missing one, part, the helicopter. Otherwise complete including all other parts, decals and instructions.

Lindberg Landing Ship Dock Motorized - US Navy LSD With 15 Landing Craft - Cellovision Issue, 1/288, 721M-298

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$165   

Rare 1950s Cellovision issue with fantastic Ray Gaedke artwork. This hard-to-find, large model of this invasion craft measures roughly 20 inches long when assembled and is engineered and motorized for operation in water; includes the electric motor and has plenty of room inside for conversion to R/C operation (R/C equipment not included). The model features operating cranes, complete deck fittings, detailed superstructure, numerous LCVP craft with separately molded loading ramps and more. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals, instructions and motorizing parts present. The box displays better than the 'fair' grade but is rated as such because the kit has been opened exactly the way that Lindberg recommends - by cutting it open on the back along one long side and the two short sides. Believe it or not, I actually have Gaedke's original painting used for this box art. I obtained it and about 15 other box art painting from one of Lindberg's later owners in the 1980s.

Otherwise complete with all other parts and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$32

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.
