  1. Hi folks, This is my first dinosaur since I was little, I think, when I have fuzzy memories of painting Airfix dinosaurs with enamels? I picked up the Lindberg "spitter" Dilophosaurus on a trip a couple of weeks ago at a bargain price and built it pretty much straight away. It's a simple kit with nice surface details. The seams close up pretty well and most of the construction work is in restoring or sculpting lost detail across the seams and where the mould horizons mean a lack of relief. I painted it with Tamiya rattle cans decanted and airbrushed -
  2. Hi all, my latest offering to the modelling gods! A bit of a struggle all round, not helped by the many trials and tribulations thrown up by Real Life during 2020... Anyway that aside, for the most part it was a fun build - the headaches were, as is my habit, almost entirely self-created. The WIP thread, for anyone interested, can be found here. Aircraft of this type were the mainstay of the RFC training units in Canada during WW1. The markings depict an aircraft of 'C' Flight, 88 Canadian Training Squadron, 44 Wing based at Armour Heights Field, Toronto, during 1917/18
  3. Hi all, herewith my latest assault on Mount Stash - another subject, hopefully unusual enough to ensure my paltry efforts will not be further magnified by comparison with other threads! A recent visit to my LMS yielded what for me looked a decent bargain - £5 for an admittedly old and battered boxing of this Lindberg kit: From what I could see, the only thing missing was the stand, which would never have featured in my plans for the thing anyway. So, what could possibly go wrong! Well, there's this I guess: I think I wil
  4. Hello, The old Lindberg "Bomber Escort", an P-51D Mustang (probably the very first P-51D in1/72) was marked VF-L with serial number 317926. Was this an real aircraft or just an fictional marking made by Lindberg? It seems that Lindberg saw what was comming and didn't want to pay any royalties to Boeing by not naming their kit as an P-51D Mustang. https://www.oldmodelkits.com/index.php?detail=23976&page=1&manu=lindberg Picture's of the Lindberg "Bomber Escort" can be seen att IPMS Stockholm. https://www.ipmsstockholm.se/phpBB
  5. Sometimes older kits showes up as old friends. And some times as not so good friends. When it comes to 1/72 scale P-51D Mustang's the Revell kit must have an record in availability. Albeit not as an good kit. We also have older kits from Airfix, Matchbox, Heller and Hasegawa. But one of the oldest P-51's must be the Lindberg "Bomber Escort". Anyone seen it? Built it? https://www.oldmodelkits.com/index.php?detail=23976&page=1&manu=lindberg Cheers / André
  6. I had this kit in the stash for a very long time, but kept overlooking it because of rigging. However I broke it out recently and decided to have a crack. The kit is basic, but decent fitting. I only replaced the lewis gun with one from the stash which looks a lot better. I rigged it by threading knitting elastic and it worked pretty well. The aircraft depicts one of the 20 odd machines acquired by the Poles to fight their war of Independence against the Russians in February 1919. Decals came from my spares box.
  7. I bought this old Lindberg kit just for the engine and tailpipe to use in a future U-2 build. Wrong engine for the U-2 I know but as it won't show it doesn't matter. Just wanted the length and the tailpipe. The more I think about it, however, the more I think this kit can be built up into a pretty decent model. A surfeit of rivets to be sure but easily removed along with the panel lines. Not sure about the shape but it looks okay. Tommy Thomason has a couple of pages on his blog about the F11-F and a search on Bling images produces this airplane with some colourful paintwork.
  8. This is the old 1/200 Lindberg moonship from 1958, reissued by Round2 and relabelled as 1/96 scale - which makes the included astronaut figures 5 feet tall instead of 10 feet tall! The original kit was based on an early-50s a von Braun concept for a round-the-moon exploratory flight (without landing). The ship was to be built in Earth orbit: Bonestell made a famous painting of it for a series of Collier's articles in the early 1950s: Lindberg, for reasons best known to themselves, stuck a set of landing legs on it, and removed the crew access, produc
  9. This one was no precise modern kit with lots of resin & etch. It’s a (very) old school kit with lots of toyish features - retractable undercarriage, opening canopy, removable ejector seat - but a passable overal shape. I tried to improve the air intake, then promptly stuck a FOD cover over it. I built up cockpit interior with plasticard and side panels, and improved the seat with plasticard and pull handles. The canopy had a totally wrong hinge at the back to let it open, so I cut that off and added hinge extension on the side where they should be. I did preshade
  10. I have always been a fan of the F-8 Crusader and A-7 Corsair. Something about that nose & intake. Always looked purposeful. I am sure A-7s used to sometimes appear at Mildenhall air shows on static display in low viz grey schemes. One day I will have a go at one of those. Until then I have a cheap eBay buy of an old Lindberg F-8J that looks to be an imposing beast, if not the most detailed kit going. You don’t get the amount of parts in a kit like this that you do in a newer kit. And I am sure some filler may be neede at some point. Its
  11. I'm going to go for it. A speed dance equivalent of two Kingfishers. This is the first, a Lindberg boxing procured somwhere I know where not. Found amongst the loft insulation a count of days ago. It did cost £10 though. It's basic, but OK, the plastic is like post multiple colour Matchbox, a kind of silvery shade. There are a small number of sink marks and there are holes for both the undercarriage and floats. Also the cockpits are minimalistic with weird seats. No gun ring or control column the wings are moulded inone piece upper and lower parts that threads through the fuselage as does the
  12. This Lindberg kit dates back to 1959 and is still on the shelves. I thought I'd pick it up because it's the first time I've done a jet aircraft. so this B-58 came out in 1959 and there's even a commercial with post cereal advertising box tops that could win you this kit, saying how it's "special" because the parts snap together and there are working features. Well, this kit CAN snap, but it's highly not recommended to do this as it won't look good at all. https://youtu.be/M64Ai4I9-as so, starting with the cockpit. It looks good for a lot from 1959. I
  13. Hello, I`ve decided to show you some of my older models, so here`s the first one. The kit is well known oldie goldie. I mus admit I really enjoyed building it. There is a lot of things that have been replaced and altered... I thought this one would be a rather quick build but it turned out to be something longer for my standards... My model depicts or is rather inspired by the Deperdussin from Oslo Teknisk Museum. I`m aware that there are plenty of errors and flaws in my build, but I`m relatively happy with the result.
  14. I want to show another of it finished aircraft. This project was similarly complete in 2016 One from "V" bomber serie AVRO VX-777 in 1:96 By "Lindberg". I invite to look. Pleasant impressions. (UKR): "Шануймося, бо ми того варті"
  15. SE.5a 1:48 Lindberg One of the most famous of all British fighters of the Great War, the S.E.5a entered service in 1917, and stayed on the front line until the end of the war in November 1918. It was a much easier aircraft to fly than the tricky Sopwith Camel, and given that many pilots were arriving with as little as 20 hours flying training, a much more suitable mount for the inexperienced. Designed by H P Folland, it's characteristics can be readily seen in the post war Gloster Grebe and Gamecock which Folland also designed. Other of his notable works were the Gloster Gauntlet and G
  16. A4D Skyhawk & F-4 Phantom II 1:72 Lindberg This is a double boxing recently re-released by Lindberg. Lindberg kits have been around for a while and it would seem that the F-4 kit dates back to 1965 not too long after the first Phantoms went to the US Navy. The A4D seems to have its origins in the IMC kit from the 1970s which was first reboxed by Lindberg back in 1990. Both kits featured the addition of extra parts to re-create a "battle damaged" look to them, and no doubt to appeal to the younger generation of modellers. A4D The overall shape for the Skyhawk seems to be good, detai
  17. At the beginning of the Battle of Britain KG 3 had a total of 108 bombers, of which 88 were combat ready. KG 3 operated during all phases of the battle. From June 1940 to March 1941 they were stationed at le Culot in France. In March 1941 II. Gruppe left for bases in Poland. During their relocation the unit stopped at Oldenburg for conversion onto the Ju 88 which was completed on 16 March. The rest of the Geschwader had converted to the Ju 88 by early June 1941. This is the ancient Lindberg kit. The cockpit is crude and incorrect in its layout. The pilots sit centrally, all facing forward, wh
  18. This is the fine 1/72 Mig 21 “Battle Damage” reboxed by Lindberg. The original kit was produced by IMC in the 1960s. Its trick feature was that you could build the kit with molded “battle damage”. I needed a quick fix for building something so did this in a weekend. The build process is here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234973002-mig-21-battle-damage;-a-weekend-build/. I only did this kit to play with the battle damage feature. There was not any considerations to how accurate a kit this is, what needed to be done to correct it; the sole purpose was to play wit
  19. I was looking for a quick, satisfying build fix in between trying to clear out my shelf of doom kits and I found this little beauty. This will be another actual weekend build. It is the 1/72 Mig 21 reissue from Lindberg. The original mold is from the 1960s molds by a company called IMC. I thought about doing this for the Lesser Known Air Force Group Build as an Iraq version, but that country was already taken. So what sets this kit apart from regular models is the thrill of reproducing “battle damage” in the form of alternative plastic parts. The parts count is low and the shape is sus
  20. Hey everyone, While I'm normally a wings and rotor man myself, I decided to take the plunge (sorry) with a submarine kit for a Sub-GB elsewhere. I got this kit as a present from a hobby shop owner when it closed down... I know, I know....you can stop sniggering down the back there. About as accurate as........the most unaccurate kit you've ever seen. Behold the many, many sprues of flash and yes, those "detailed instructions" ! And that essential weapon for submarine warfare.......no torpedo tubes! To be honest, this was probably not the best choice for my first watery floaty kit.
  21. Tyrannosaurus Rex 1:24 (approx) Lindberg T.Rex is perhaps one of the most widely known dinosaurs, and has been the star of many a movie over the years, from Ray Harryhausen to Steven Spielberg's offerings. For some reason it stirs the interest of little boys and adults like, and although it has now been dethroned as "king of the lizards" by the Spinosaurus and others, it still holds our interest. Perhaps it is because it was found in the western lands that now make up North America, right where Hollywood is found? Who knows. T.Rex was a meat eating dinosaur that we now believe might ha
  22. IJN Submarine I-53 Lindberg 1:72 I-153 (ex-I-53) was a Kaidai-class submarine (KD3 Type) of the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. She was laid down 1 April 1924 at Kure Naval Arsenal as submarine No. 64, launched 5 August 1925, completed 30 March 1927. She was renumbered I-53 on 1 November 1924. During the war she sank Dutch merchant ship Mösi on 27 February 1942, sank RMS City of Manchester on 28 February 1942 and sank unknown merchant vessel on 27 February 1942. On 20 May 1942 The I-53 renumbered again as I-153. Sometime during 1943/44 she was modified by having an enlarged
  23. Graf Zeppelin 1:245 Hawk/Lindberg The design and construction of Graf Zeppelin were essentially conservative, based on tried-and-true technology developed over the Zeppelin Company’s decades of experience, and the ship was constructed of triangular Duralumin girders, with frames spaced 15 meters apart. The design of the Zeppelin was constricted by the size of the building shed at Friedrichshafen, which had inner dimensions of 787 feet in length and 115 feet in height. Since greater size meant greater efficiency in long distance operation, the challenge for Ludwig Durr and his desig
  24. Dodge L-700 Tractor Unit with Chrome tanker or Box Van Trailer 1:25 Plastic kit from Lindberg Models The Dodge L700 is a medium duty truck manufactured by Dodge trucks in the USA using components from there A100 light duty trucks. The L-700 was available with either a Dodge, or Cummins V8 engine. The L-700 had a smaller sibling , the L-600, that was outwardly similar but designed to pull smaller weights, this had the option of straight 6 diesel of a V8 Gas engine. The Dodge L-700 was available as a tractor with a very short 89inch wheelbase, and a steering angle of 50o for great man
