  Lindberg Model Kits

Lindberg F7U-1 Cutlass - (F7U1), 1/48, 510-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$89   

1956 or '57 Gaedke artwork with three aircraft and the carrier. The box top has like new color and gloss, four solid corners, no repairs, no price tags, no fading and no litho tears. General and even light wear are the only flaws. The model is molded in a stunning, high-gloss dark blue and clear plastic 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. Dating early 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. The early part number of '10' after the 5 would support such an early date, as Lindberg initially used sequential numbers. Please note that the instructions for this kit contain multiple factory mistakes! The pilot sits on a seat, not the 'board' shown in the instructions. The pitot tube is not even shown on the assembly page, but is present with the kit.

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.

All four corners are solid and original and there is no fading, torn or missing litho and zero stains. The only flaws are very light wear in a few isolated locations. 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. Inside, the kit is in 'factory new' condition and still packed exactly as it left the factory. The gray parts are still wrapped in the factory wrapping paper, while the small metal parts are in the factory sealed clear bag.
