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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$69   

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: Good+

$75   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. Molded in medium blue and clear and includes decals for the box art aircraft including red and white checkerboards for the rudders. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than the 'good+' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the long sides and also tape pull damage to one side as well as general wear. Dating Lindberg kits is problematic to a near complete lack of release information; early catalogs normally do not have dates, and there are no dates on early boxes or instructions & decals. However, by records kept when the kits were purchased new, we know this kit was issued either in 1956 or 1957.

Lindberg Chris Craft Constellation for R/C or Display - (ex-Marx), 1/20, 70814

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$375   

2006 issue from the original excellent Marx molds, which were cut in late 1950s. Measures 30 inches long when built. This is Lindberg's R/C issue and it includes two electric motors, all necessary hardware, R/C and motor mounting plates...just about everything except batteries and a 2 Channel Radio. There is plenty of room in the vast hull for lighting, noise/speaker and any equipment or larger batteries you may wish to add. Molded in white, silver and clear with many brilliantly chromed parts. The molds were reportedly damaged in this run, which if true would prohibit a reissue. Never started. Almost all parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The few that were not have been inventoried complete, including decals and instructions.

Lindberg HMS Hood British Battlecruiser Motorized, 1/400, 763M

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$95   

Still factory sealed but the seal has drawn the box concave. 1979 release of the classic working kit. Could easily be made RC with modern small FM components. This is a large model 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.

Lindberg F-80C (P-80) Shooting Star, 1/48, 500-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$85   

1950s issue. The hardbox is in exceptional investment-grade "near mint" condition with fantastic color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading and no tears. Very slight wear is the only flaw. Molded in the correct silver and clear with the early O-lin style stand. The kit has not been started and is complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Paul Lindberg got his start in 1930s model aviation by designing, building and flying stick and tissue aircraft. His plans appeared in Popular Aviation magazine and he soon made a name for himself. When injection molding showed the way to increased kit sales in the late 1940s/early 1950s, he quickly teamed up with Mr. Olsen to create 'O-lin' models. Ray Gaedke was one the the early artists for O-lin, and he help pioneer dramatic and colorful box artwork. In the early 1950s Paul Lindberg was running the company and had the logo changed to his name. The first logo was circular, with 'Lindberg' in middle and 'Products' 'Incorporated' arched across the top and bottom. The second logo is the 'Yellow Rectangle' that is on this kit. Ray Gadke continued his bold and colorful artwork for Lindberg and did this F-80C boxart as well.

Lindberg Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 521-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$74   

Rare, earlier 1950s issue with fantastic Ray Gaedke hardbox artwork. This is a large scale (1/48) 'theoretical' Mig-19. The aircraft never existed in this configuration. However, Aurora made one almost just like it; it is believed that both manufacturers used the same magazine drawing as the basis for their Mig-19 models. Molded in silver and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. NOTE: the box is graded 'good-' because of the edge wear due to bugs and clear tape on the four sides.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Good

$69   

Still factory sealed. Rare late 1950s issue with Ray Gaedke artwork. The clear Cellovision window and trading card on the back are both 100% intact and very good.

Lindberg Douglas A4D-1 Skyhawk - (A-4), 1/48, 529-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$54   

From the mid 1950s. Early issue small narrow box with classic Ray Gaedeck Box Art. For some reason, this model is rarer than the other Lindberg kits of that time. This model represents the very early (probably prototype) Skyhawk, which is no surprise; Lindberg, like Aurora, often tried to be 'first to market' and did not hesitate to use prototypes for kits. Features detailed jet engine, opening inspection panel, pilot and ejection seat, opening canopy, full landing gear, centerline drop tank, wing rockets and display stand. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. The box displays slightly better than the 'good-' rating but is graded as such because there is clear tape on the four sides where the box was taped shut more than once.
