Lindberg Kits from Busch Moulds

The German company Busch+Co KG lauched a series of plastic aircraft kits and built-up models in 1958. Production ended in 1962 and the moulds were sold to Lindberg. Scale was nominally 1:175. I cannot determine exactly when the Lindberg distribution was launched [3]. In any case the licence produced Busch kits appear in the Lindberg 1964/65 catalog, which is the base for this compilation

Plastic Kits

In this catalogue the kits are presented as members of three individual series. This is reflected in the arrangement below.

I have no exact information when production ended. The ex-Busch kits are still present in the German 1968 catalogue, but no  more in the German 1974/75 catalogue.
