Molded in white and beautiful gloss mahogany. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, flags and instructions present. Instructions are included for powered operation; some hardware is included. However, the motor, battery box and wires were never included.

Lindberg Monitor and Merrimac with Diorama Seascape Base, 77257

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG

$55   

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$55   

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.
