Lindberg 1929 Mercedes Benz SSK


Recommended Posts

LIndberg had a flash of intelligence with this kit, as well as their Bugatti Royale kit (first model kit of any Royale, BTW).  Both are pretty much late 1960's model car kit design, as laid out by AMT, MPC and such.  While it has great detail, the only real drawback are the one-piece wire wheels--they are pretty much correct, but Lindberg chose to do them with a solid backing, which means some shadowing work in order to get them to really stand out.

All in all, a pretty nice kit, moved the bar considerably for Lindberg back in the day--but Paul Lindberg was far more interested, apparently, in making cheap model kits for the chain store trade.
