Kits history : Lindberg before it was named Lindberg (2)
« on: December 07, 2018, 07:44:31 AM »
Hi mates :-salut

Here is the second kit that I found and that was produce under the brand name of O'Lin : the Republic RC-3 Seabea. This little flying boat which appeared in 1946 has been studied to be used in Canada because of the numerous lakes in that land...
The kit made by O'Lin in 1/48 scale appeared between 1948 and 1950. It is molded entirely in white polystyrene and the windows, the limits of which are embossed are to be painted Silver or Sky Blue. The airscrew has to be cemented...
This bos is a second issue, being in two colors. Decals are of the sliding type.


The notice is made of a leaflet inside the box and presents also others models.




In 1982 this kit was re-issued by Glencoe in clear plastic so that it's possible to obtain clear windows but interior must be scratch-built.
