        every single Lindberg kit I ever bought, found or been given has ended up in the trash or smashed with a hammer. just crap models.

          The Lindberg models are odd - not really 1:32 scale as advertised with bodies composed of separate parts that need to be glued together. But, I took advantage of the fact the sides of the bodies were separate from the top to make some interesting 2 tone cars - painted the parts before gluing together. I have a class of vintage cars for oval racing that's composed of Lindberg bodies on Artin and Revell chassis - '34 Fords, '49 Fords, and '53 Chevys.

          Yeah the Gremlin is AMT and a nice casting.

          The Lindberg Rat rod is actually a nice mold for static builders. But yes, most of the so called 1/32 are not very good. Smaller than 1/32 and castings are rough.

            The Gremlin is so cool! Harry if you want one I'll grab it and send it to you I built a bunch of Lindberg models as a young boy the drug store down the street was always stocked with them model T , Roadsters and Ford pickups they weren't the best kits but did make some cool shelf models

              I think that Lindberg kit a 1/8 scale model. That is what it says on the box.

                No Ollie's store near the NY Metro area that I can find.
                I can't complain, we've got just about every other type of store either here on Long Island or within a reasonable drive!
                Enjoy, guys! -- Ernie
