Aurora 1914 Stutz Bearcat Old Timers, 1/16, 571-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$119   

1961 first issue of Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model with Plated Parts'. Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. It builds up a rolling chassis with transaxle, suspension, exhaust and driveline detail and includes a detailed interior with separately molded instruments. Molded in gloss yellow, dark wood tan and with plated parts and real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. The parts that were factory sealed are still in the sealed bags. The parts that were not factory sealed have been inventoried complete including instructions. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Aurora Convair VR XFY-1 Pogo, 1/48, 60-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$155   

First issue from the early 1950s. Please note the early Aurora rectangular logo, which was used from about 1953 to 1955. Rare large scale model features working counter-rotating props and is molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Convair 880 Jetliner Delta, 1/103, 383-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

$215   

Still in the factory seal - the seal has a 2 inch split on one long side. Rare 1960 Delta Airlines issue. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed VG+

$45   

Still factory sealed but the seal and box have wear as shown. This is the 4th known issue of this classic kit, and the second one to share the 102-100 kit number. The blue oval logo dates from the early 1960s. This is only the second box artwork used for this kit, and John Steel replaced Cox for the 'new look' from Aurora. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

$22   

Nicely done early kit from Frog molds and marketed by Air Lines. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

There are two trading cards on each box which show the boxart but not the advertising/logo. Some kits contain a Testors color painting guide also, but it is not specific to any model.
