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 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 Martin B-26 Marauder, 1/46, 371-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++
