Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. 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.

Russkit Slot Car Lister Jaguar Superleggera Scratch Builder, 1/32, 1500-800

Metal and Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$135   

Rare and even rarer in this condition. The contents of this kit are still factory sealed - the metal, nylon and rubber parts are still sealed in the factory blister display and the box with the car is still factory tape sealed. The Russkit motor box was never factory sealed; however, the motor inside is factory bag sealed and includes detailed instructions. (NOTE: the motor says 'Russkit 34' and not '22' like the box top. I don't know if the 34 replaced the 22, or if Russkit simply packed the wrong motor.) Never started and includes all of the factory packing/display materials. With detailed instructions.

Franklin Mint Armour Collection F-86 Sabre 'Mig Mad Marine' John Glenn, 1/48, B11C990

Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$95   

Rare. Brand new, never removed from the box and complete. High quality die-cast model that is completely factory built and painted. Please note the canopy is present, but Franklin Mint shipped them off the model. You have to snap it on to install it. When I saw this kit had never been removed from the packaging, I did not open it. If any of the paperwork is important to you, let me know before you purchase and I will check for you. This is what Franklin Mint says about each of these models: "Each of our die-cast models are hand-assembled and hand painted to ensure quality and authentic detail. To create each exciting precision replica, our designers and engineers make exhaustive examinations of their subject from every conceivable angle; photographing, sketching and in many cases studying the actual plans. Months are spent sculpting a scale prototype that captures even the most intricate details. The result: A precision-engineered model of unsurpassed quality that you will be proud to own and display. Each is a masterpiece of the model maker's art, reflecting our passion for perfection, our total commitment to superb craftsmanship, and our abiding respect for quality and authenticity."

Megow Ranger Class B Gas Model - 44 Inch Wingspan Early Free Flight Aircraft, E-22

Wood and Metal Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$175   

Very, very rare. From the late 1930s or pre-war 40s. Fred Megow once stated that they lost money on the big gas models and sold very few; they were done for status only. This is a one owner kit; the box top and tray are in good condition given the age of the model; that stain on the litho lowers the overall grade to 'good'. The box top and bottom are 100% intact, never repaired and have great corners. Inside, the kit has never been touched. The small parts are still in the sealed paper envelope and it appears that the plans have never been unfolded. Includes quality printwood, stock balsa, factory cut stringers and spars (still held in a bundle together with the factory rubber bands), balsa and hardwood stock cut to general shape, fully formed wooden wheels, fully formed wire landing gear struts, sealed hardware packet and more. It is complete with all parts and plans. I do not see any covering tissue, but some models did not come with it (and it may be in the never opened plans).

Campbell Silver Spur Mine - HO Scale Craftsman Kit, 1/87, 388

Multimedia Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$59

Lindberg Air Force Tank Destroyer P-47 Thunderbolt Motorized, 1/48, 303M

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$85   

Early Motorized release from the 1950s with hard box and classic Ray Gaedke Art. Molded in green and clear plastic with a large decal sheet that includes the checkerboard nose, rudder stripes and fuselage + wing invasion stripes. Never started. The motor is still factory sealed and the other parts have been inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays much better than the 'very good' grade but is graded as such because both short sides have fading and significant wear near the edges. Lindberg is a company with a fascinating history The original 'Lindberg Line' stretches back to the 1930s when Paul Lindberg drew plans for famous modeling magazines and marketed his balsa wood 'stick and tissue' by urging dealers to carry the '...Complete Lindberg Line'. 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.

AMT 1957 Ford Thunderbird Promo, 1/25

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$28   

Original dealer promotional model from 1956 for the '57 year. Like all originals, it has a black painted, metal chassis that is stamped "AMT INC Birmingham Mich." The body has very good color and gloss and shown. Clear windshield is excellent. This is a celluloid plastic body, but amazingly there is only minimal warping. The silver trim has been painted to 'professional' quality by the previous owner. It looks better than most factory painted trim on other promos. This was a friction motor car but the previous owner removed the friction motor (but kept the original chassis, axles and even the drive gear). The box is not original.
