Lindberg Ship Model Kits

Lindberg was founded in the 1930's, which probably makes them the oldest American manufacturer of injection-molded kits. They have, among other subjects, a line of ship models in a variety of scales. The quality of Lindberg kits run from very poor to acceptable but they have some unique kits. Along the way, Lindberg acquired the ship model molds used by Life-Like Models, which were formerly from Pyro Models. These kits are re-released from time to time. My thanks to Bill Michaels for his input and corrections to this list.
