  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora German Tiger Tank WWII, 1/48, 312-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$145   

Still factory sealed and in fantastic investment-grade condition. Hard-to-find 1/48 scale armor kit has John Steel art and the hardbox is dated 1964.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 Fighter, 1/48, 33-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$155   

Rare 1/48 scale kit. Hardbox is dated 1958, but the logo tells us that this is a very late 1950 to early 1960s issue since there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo. The factory put a tiny '100' circle sticker over the '98' in the part number. This issue has the correct triangle two-piece clear base as well as full landing gear and rockets. Molded in silver and clear. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both 'excellent' with slight yellowing as the only real flaws. This is reissue of one of Aurora's first two kits (F-90 and F9F) which were copies of the Hawk molds.

Aurora The Wanderer Whaler - (HO Scale), 1/87, 440-595

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$185   

Rare 1966 hardbox issue of this very large, two feet long (1/87 scale) classic commercial whaler model. Well detailed for that time. This kit was one of a series of large-scale sailing ships made by Aurora to appeal to the serious ship modeler. Molded in correct dark wood, black, tan, ivory and white. Features billowing sails, metal anchor chains, running and standing rigging, molded ratlines and display stand. It has not been started. The parts that were factory sealed are all still factory sealed. Only the white sail parts were never factory sealed, and they have been inventoried complete. Includes all other parts, decals, flag sheet, metal chain, rigging thread and instructions. The Wanderer was built in Mattapoiset, MA in 1878 and was the last sailing whaleship to depart the US on a whaling voyage. She sailed from New Bedford on 24 August 1924 and was driven ashore on Cuttyhunk Island by a gale the next day and became a total loss. (from Joe Greenley)

The box is in amazing 'near mint' condition with as-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or tape marks, no price tags and no tears. The only flaw is very light corner and edge wear. Hardbox is dated 1958, but the logo tells us that this is a very late 1950 to early 1960s issue since the 'Famous Fighters' is not present in the oval logo but the sunburst still is. This issue has the correct triangle two-piece clear base as well as full landing gear and rockets. Molded in silver and clear. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. This is reissue of one of Aurora's first two kits (F-90 and F9F) which were copies of the Hawk molds.

Aurora Bell AH-1G Huey Cobra - Assault Helicopter, 1/72, 501

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$69   

Still factory sealed. Big 'A' logo issue dated 1972. Likely the third issue of this kit. In the late 1960s Aurora realized that the older molds were out of date and modelers were demanding more realism. They made a new set of molds for ships, airplanes and helicopters. These were significant improvements as the new molds were on par with current offerings. This Cobra kit is one of the improved new mold kits. Features full cockpit, pilot and copilot figures, rotating main and rear rotors and optional weapons load - miniguns or rocket pods.

Hardbox kit dated 1965. Aurora issued this kit in the wake of the highly successful James Bond 007 series.
