Email for availability.

Very rare and early kit, most likely from 1938. This appears to be the prototype XP-39 with the side radiator scoops. Kit features fuselage block, printwood wings, horizontal and vertical stabilizer, side radiators, nose wheel, and nose strut, while the factory small paper bag contains 2 fully finished main gear wheels, fully formed metal main gear struts, balsa stock and a propeller. The plans features three view drawings, detail and assembly drawings, fuselage and wing templates, paint guide ("Entire Model Is Silver") and cut out insignia for the tail flash, national markings and US ARMY. The plans are complete but have some short to medium edge and fold tears in three places. The box is the one-piece type and is missing the small and main flap on one end. They are present on the opposite end. There is tearing on the sides and bottom. I have graded it 'poor' but it actually displays better.

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.
