Bigger Lindberg Sailing Ship Kits
Posted by model make on Saturday, June 22, 2024 2:43 PM

 

Hi

We picked up these kits.

Bouda,Santa Catarina and the Jolly Roger.

They are all about 14 to 16 inches long not including bowsprits.

We know about the Sea Witch 1/96th scale(about 32 inches length).

No deals on one that we can see.

What kits are there bigger than ones we have? Lindberg we mean.

Have a nice day

Bob

Hi!

    You can try some of the Heller kits, Some Pyro/Lifelike kits and Imaii and Otaki kits. They do slip in some really great stuff! True, Lindberg didn't make some of these, But at 1/96 scale they can't be beat!

     just an extra note.I found out by accident the Aurora company did one too.It looks like they may have leased, Lindberg's mold of the "Sea Witch". I am not sure.i came across it at a yard sale so you can imagine the condition it was in. Masts broken Rigging like a bowl of black spaghetti! Two Whole Dollars. it's going to become a sidewheel steamer with ship rig masts and sails!

Hi ddp59

Thank you

Started to look at the list.

Now we did go ahead and get a little Mayflower one in the meantime.

For now we have gotten over wanting a big Lindberg sailing ship kit.

Have a nice day

Hi Tanker-Builder

Thank you too.

We will stick with Lindberg.

We basically just look at them.

Not too much building going on here.

For 1,2,3...many reasons.

There is the Lindberg America's Cup sailing boat.

Turns out it has nothing to do with Vanderbilt's racing sloop.

At least it is biggish.:)

Have a nice day

Bob
