Lindberg Snark missile model kit
Posted by Rob Gronovius on Saturday, January 2, 2021 9:09 PM

I've seen stacks of this kit at a closeout store nearby. "Toys" are going to be nearly half off this weekend. Is this old, reissued kit decent?

I know some of Lindberg's old kits are pedestrian at best. I was wondering if it was worth the price (probably around $10 after discount and tax).

I saw this today also while I made a bee-line for the used book section where I picked up a copy of Lord's "The Miracle of Dunkirk".

Aside from raised panel lines (which do not bother me BTW), it's a fair representation of its subject.  Comes with a launch trailer.  I wouldn't go with the scheme as presented on the box, but paint it up operational.  Of course, its Lindberg, so expect a lot of sanding and filing.  It's an old kit.  But what do you expect for $10?

For $10 and something to do, why not?

I think it's a great kit.  But I'm a bit of a sucker for kits like that.  Got two Aurora X-13's, they have the launch trailer.  They are plain unless you add some greeblies.

Agreed. Many of the old Lindberg kits are neat rare-ish subjects. Most are pretty simple as kits go...but make a great basis for a little 'detailing up.' The price sounds irresistible to me.
