Kits History : Lindberg before it was named Lindberg (3)
« on: December 08, 2018, 12:23:58 AM »
Hello mates :-salut

We are in 1948 ans new kits appeared being issued by O'Lin, a brand founded by Paul W. Lindberg and Mr Olsen in 1930. Those kits are molded of polystyrene in place of Varney's and Hawk's kits molded of Tenite, sort of acetate.
Here is the sixth model numbered No. 505 in the new range of genuine models by O'Lin, the North American F-86A Sabre :
The box is printed in two colors and is, as for the former models, of the "one piece" type. Building notice is printed on the back of the box. The pecularity of this kit is the red part for the air intake ring ; when O'Lin becomes Lindberg, the nose ring will be the same color as other parts...










There are two clear parts for the windshield and the canopy. A stand is also provided. Decals are of the sliding type but have to permanently attached with white glue or clear varnish.






This kit is also issued under the brand name of "The Lindberg Line" in 1950 and later until the 1970s, a version of which includes an electric motor permitting reproduction of the sound of the turbojet...
