Lindberg 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409, 1/25, 72163

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$36   

Still factory sealed. The 1961 Chevy 409 is the car that everyone heard about but hardly anyone saw. Only 142 409 CID engines were produced in 1961. Popularized by the Beach Boy's song and numerous race wins, it is counted as one of the first muscle cars since it has a high displacement engine in a (relatively) light weight body. The 409 was a late-year production option intended to replace (and correct the faults) of the 348 V-8. Although it looked like a "W" block 348, it was not and differed internally and by casting numbers. Because of the late roll-out and the delay in obtaining the desired cylinder heads, many '61 409s were sent out the factory door with the high performance 348 cylinder heads (from the 3x2 carb configuration. It worked well, but as a result few '61 409s ended up with the intended heads. Not all '61 409s were SS (Super Sport) models. There were about 453 SS kits made vs. 142 409s. Some SSs were factory installed but many are thought to be dealer installed; they were mainly put on the 2DR HT, but a SS Convertible was found in a junkyard back in the early 1990s and documented to be original (shockingly, it has the original 409 in it also). 1961 409 attrition was severe, as many if not most were raced. Although a good engine, it was far from perfect and that did not help. It is believed that 6 remain of the 142 made. The block was altered for the '62 409 and new casting numbers were used, making the '61 409 castings and numbers unique to that year. The actual kit is from 1996 and one of Lindberg's finest efforts. Very well detailed and features a full 409 engine with correct factory fuel set up (4 bbl and dual snorkel air clearer), correct Muncie four speed manual transmission, good engine compartment detail, opening hood with scale hinges, detailed chassis with separately molded springs, front and rear suspension, drive shaft and complete exhaust, full interior with the correct 4 speed 61-only shifter plate, separately molded chrome door handles, fender ornaments, windshield wipers, SS spinners and an extensive decal set that covers from the valve covers to the speedometer and individual instrument faces. Molded in white, clear, red-tint clear, chrome plate and with rubber tires.

Lindberg USS Lexington CV-16 Aircraft Carrier (Essex Class), 1/525, HL436-12

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$34   

Still factory sealed. This makes an ideal 'Classic Builder" as it is a reissue of the hard-to-find large Wasp (Essex class) aircraft carrier model from the 1950s. I cannot confirm all the contents, but the original issue and 1960s reissues had 32 aircraft (straight wing and folded wing), inner full-length hanger deck, full hull with prop and rudder detail, three optional position elevators, detailed island and extensive AA weapons - dual 5 inch turrets, 40mm quad mounts and single 20mm mounts. The side photos of the actual model show all these features except the hanger deck.

Lindberg Nautilus Atomic Submarine, 1/300, 70884

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$18   

Still factory sealed and dated 2007. The model is an interesting work of fact and fiction - it includes a deck gun and what looks like a Regulus II missile for the deck! The scale is about 1/300 and it measures about 12 inches long when assembled. This kit has a fascinating history. In the 1930s, Paul Lindberg was designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft like so many other men and boys of the time. His plans appear in Popular Aviation magazine and he made a good name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kits sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the early artists for O-lin. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg had control and had his name as the logo. The first logo is the one on this kit - 'Lindberg' in script with 'Products' arched across the top and 'Incorporated' arched across the bottom to create a broken circle around the script. Ray Gaedke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindbergs first Nautilus issue. The Nautilus appears to be the first sea vessel that Lindberg cut their own molds for - the Chris Craft Express Cruiser, PT Boat, LST and Fleet Submarine (Ex-Varney) were done by O-lin.
