Lindberg Model kits: New Instruction Sheets

One of the great features in the new Lindberg and Hawk releases are the improved instruction sheets.  We want modellers to have fun with our kits and the instructions are a large part of that experience.

Many of the previous iterations included excessive amounts of text, steps that jumped around the page, and sometimes in sequences that made little sense.  See the old and new version of the HL429 USS Hazard Navy Minesweeper.  Or in some cases, such as the HL439 Tabletop Navy 2-Pack: HMS King George V & HMS Dorsetshire, the vintage instructions contain errors that have been overlooked for year.  The parts in the kit were different than what was pictured in the original instructions.  I have found several instances where tools were modified but the instruction sheet stayed the same.

In our new releases you will see instructions with clean line art, steps ordered in a more clear and thoughtful manner, an extended layout allowing for more detailed paint and decal diagrams, and an overall better look.  Let us know what you think of the improvements.

    The new ones are much better. Especially considering a lot of older kits didn’t have numbers on the sprue trees, so it was more a matter of matching up the shape of the parts to the instructions – and hoping the drawings were good enough to identify the parts. I see a lot less frustration coming our way LOL

    Ok, I’ll bite – what’s with the two Hot Rods on the corners Something new? 🙂

      Unfortunately, the HMS Hood kit was not one produced by us here at Round 2. To our knowledge, there is not a revised instruction sheet available for this kit.

    Does anyone know where I can find a copy of the instruction sheet for the Lindberg Roswell UFO kit #91005? Would really appreciate it I could get a copy to build the kit that I bought in a bag. It looks straight forward, but instructions do help. Thanks for any input that is provided. Dave.

    Can you supply assembly instructions for the 1997 Roswell UFO #555 release?

    Take care, be safe and thanks in advance for addressing this inquiry….
