Lindberg is back, and their site proclaims “Your Source for over 200 Un-Assembled Plastic Model Kits.” Talk about coming back in a big way! They have a wide variety of kits, too- cars, ships, aircraft, space, sci-fi, human body and dinosaurs. And it’s not just talk- I’ve seen several of their kits already on the shelves of my favorite local hobby shop, Hayes Hobby House.
Their aircraft line is especially interesting. While many of the standards are there- Corsairs, Zeros, Stukas, as well as modern jets, there are some very unusual kits too. Several modern jet kits have “battle damage” options. The Douglas X-3 Stiletto is there. Golden Age racers, early jets, and even a USS Los Angeles Airship are part of their line.
Hopefully, the nostalgia factor will win over many older modelers, and perhaps if the prices are right, some simpler kits will help bring in new modelers to the hobby. Anything that can bring new folks into the hobby is a good thing!
Welcome back Lindberg!
