better modeler's

saw these at Megahobby.

http://www.megahobby...6&page=2&sort=1

they're near bottom of page.

they are not on Lindberg's official site, so who's putting them out?

that's great using original box art!

be interesting to see what the actual kit's are like inside.

here's pic of one, there's 3 more versions available.

have a nice day!

The one in the pic you posted is one of the 'Vinage Dirt Modifieds' reissued as a pair by Model King a few years back, the Kustom Koffin being the other. They're a bit crude but they look pretty cool when build up properly.

mr most

these are different.

they're four individual kit's that just

appeared on Megahobby and a couple other places.

here's pic's of other three.

the quality of my other Lindberg kits has been A1.

i guess you're talking about lack of detail.

i don't think they're supposed to precision kits for advanced builders.

that's the new White Lightning that came out kind of small.

have a nice day!

Are those being released by DTR, dirt track replicas? I saw them yesterday but did not look at them, not a subject matter of interest for me.

mike modeler

this is from Model Car Roundup's site.

'Part of a Dirtrack Racecars, Inc. Limited Production Series of Vintage Lindberg Super Modifieds from the 1960's.'

i think the 'Super' part is a little off.

being it's a DTRC production of a Lindberg kit,

my statements about Lindberg quality are N/A here.

don't know what DTRC quality is like.

these look like fun little kits.

have a nice day!

I think your middle picture is not a model kit. It may just be me though.

that rebel racer jpg. looks ok to me.

i was saying that one of them was SMALL.

you can go to any online model shop and see them.

skip

that was a big accomplishment back then.

up to then some of the kits, cars boats airplanes

would just look generally like what they were

supposed to be.

you can build all 4 and make a little oval track diorama! :)

have a nice day!

When I looked at the picture earlier, it wasn't the picture that I see now. Sometimes when I use my phone to view this site, the pictures that are linked do not work correctly.
