Lindberg Junkers Ju-87B Stuka, 1/48, 524-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$55   

Late 1950s hardbox issue with Ray Gaedke box artwork. Please note that this is an early issue with the white circle on the rudder for the swastika. The swastika is not present on the box artwork. However, the decals had the swastika and the factory partially cut them out of the sheet. As a historical note, this kit was originally issued with the swastika on the box art and decals - Lindberg quickly recognized that this was poor publicity in the USA at that time and more importantly that the kit could not be sold in Europe. The second issue had the box art modified to remove the swastika but not the white circle and the offending markings were cut from the decal sheet. The third issue had the white circle removed from the box art and the decal sheet was redesigned to exclude it also. Molded in correct gloss medium green and clear, with the futuristic Lindberg 'V' shaped clear stand. For it's time, this was an excellent kit with fine panel and rivet detail. Features crew of two and seats, separately molded rudder and flap/ailerons, four small wing load bombs and a center bomb with 'swing arm' so that it would clear the prop in a dive. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
