Kits history : Lindberg before it was named Lindberg (1)
« on: December 06, 2018, 04:04:07 PM »
Hello mates, :-salut

I found some time ago, kits of the O'Lin brand that became in 1950 "the Lindberg Line".
Since 1930, O'Lin (contraction of the two names Olsen and Lindberg) was producing wood plane kits. In 1947, O'Lin issued four civil planes in 1/48 scale and entirely made of polystyrene but those kits were not their creation. In 1948, the first of their own models is issued ; this was the :
Lockheed F-80C Shooting Star, No. 500, in 1/48 scale.
Here you are the second edition of the kit with blue and red colored box (The first one was only in dark blue color).
Although the pilot is foreseen to be included in the kit, and iti is a pecularity of this kit, he is often absent ; I had luck to find a complete box.




The edges of the box (We shall notice the note "An educational construction kit ":






Decals, rather badly printed, are not still sticky; it is necessary to fix them with varnish:


The parts :


This model will be periodically proposed, unchanged. Last edition in 1991 with some improvements.

A nice original one!!! I built one of the later versions during my earliest days of modeling, so you've brought me back to my youth, Jicehem!!
