To be honest, if there was one model car/truck factory to go down, I wish it would be Lindberg. Have you seen their 37 Cord Convertible and 35 Auburn Boattail Speedster kits? They are the worst kits I have ever seen. It seems like the main reason why the L700 looks much better then other Lindberg kits is, that the molds were made by IMC (their logo is still on the parts), so I would assume that Lindberg just purchased the molds at some point.

Here are a couple builds that I used the kits for including the Dodge CN 800 resin.

The Cord, Lilncoln, & Auburn are even OLDER that the IMC tooled Dodge & trailers.

Those are PALMER kits from 59-65 era!!!. So Yea, They are what they are.

 

I did not know Lindberg had released anything for 5 years!!!!

I have the L700/flat trailer 40 Ford set. Got it at W-M of all places just before they dropped kits

a few years ago.

(I have not seen any at my W-M since reading that they are back and even show as a retailer on the Revell website)

 

I hope to get the Coca-Cola issue soon. and any of the others I can.

I still think it would be better not to release them at all, instead of releasing them under their own name.

I'm pretty sure all those tools were sold to Union.  After that I'm not sure, I don't think they're in business anymore.  The rest Lindberg has which is now owned by Round 2.

Hope not....lost & destroyed? in Japan? for ever :unsure:  or... hidden here?

No doubt that if all the other IMC 1/25th car kits molds are alive & well, Round2 will surely reissue them...if they find them in dusty wood crates...Will see! ;)

Always tought that TESTORS, made a "run" here of those Ex-IMC's kits & shipped them to UNION: Memorial Collection series,  back in the mid 1980's. UNION Model Co in Tokyo...Looooong gone indeed!

I love the tanker trailer...has many possibilities.   Very cool resin Dodge...now that needs to be done in plastic!
