Email for availability.

Builder kit only, please read carefully. Dated 1972. Very highly detailed kit and well molded, typical of Aurora's last kits. Features full cockpit, opening cockpit doors, pilot and co-pilot figures, detailed engines and rotor assembly, rotating main and rear rotors and removable mobile hospital with opening ramp, plasma containers and cot. Although these kits were a huge improvement over the offerings from the 1950s, they were too late to save the company. NOTE: this kit has minor, neat assembly. The cockpit assembly has been neatly built. I have also included an unbuilt (but neatly painted) cockpit that is missing the control sticks, one pilot and a seat. There is no other assembly. NOTE: the pod is missing one #81 grab-on and one #75 tiny wheel. I have included a partially built pod that does include those parts. Inventoried with all other parts and instructions, NOTE: missing decals.
