  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet, 1/49, 22-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$55   

Dated 1960, but I believe this is actually a later issue due to the 100 cent price extension and no 'Famous Fighters' logo on the short box sides. Molded in a brilliant gloss deep blue and clear with the clear triangle 'World' stand. These molds are from one of Aurora's first two kits - the F9F and F-90. Aurora simply went out and purchased the early Hawk F9F and F-90 kits and copied them almost exactly. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals are intact but have micro-cracking from age.

Aurora German Gotha G.V Bomber - Aurora K&B Issue, 1/48, 1126-300

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$79   

Dated 1972 by the 'K&B Manufacturing - Division of Aurora Products Corp.' Excellent builder kit with revised and more accurate molds and very good mold quality. Includes terrain base and full rigging instructions. Never started. 100% inventoried complete with all parts/decals and instructions present. Please note that the decal backing paper has some bug damage but the actual transfers are undamaged.

Aurora Northrop N-156 (F-5 Prototype) Freedom Fighter, 1/48, 140-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$70   

Dated 1962 with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork. However, the lack of the 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the logo tells us that this issue is from around 1963-'65. Excellent condition box. Kit includes pilot, cockpit and instrument panel and three drop tanks and early AIM-9 Sidewinder Air-to-Air Missiles. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals are 100% intact but have some very fine visible age cracking. This kit is a very good representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice. It was renamed the F-5 and the rest is history - it became one of the most widely used fighter/bombers in post-WWII history and is still in service in some air forces.

Aurora Fokker D-VII - D-7, 1/48, 106-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$55   

Still mint factory seal and in investment-grade condition. Kit is dated 1958, but still has original 1956 box art. The actual issue date is from the mid-1960s due to the 1 dollar price extension and the blue oval logo.

Aurora Atomic Powered Guided Missile Submarine SSN Sea Wolf, 1/242, 706-98

$85   

Hard-to-find 1962 hard box issue. Full hull model is molded in black and includes a display stand, missile storage tube and missile with launcher.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$89   

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.

Aurora Bell AH-1G Assult Copter, 1/48, 501-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM++

$95

Aurora USS Bennion DD662 Destroyer - Plus Decals for Other Fletcher Class Destroyers, 1/516, 704-79

Dated 1957. Incredible Jo Kotula box artwork with the box top in investment grade 'near mint' condition. Color and gloss are factory fresh, all four corners are solid, there is no tape, tape marks, price tags or tag marks, no fading and no missing litho. The only flaws are slight edge and general light wear. This is the first issue - please note sunburst oval Aurora logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the boarder. Includes enough hull numbers to make any one of 52 Fletcher class destroyers. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora British Spitfire, 1/43, 20-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$145   

Dated 1960 with wonderful Mort Kunstler artwork. This is the first issue for this box art due to the 79 cent price extension and 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo. The kit is molded in high-gloss metallic blue and clear and features full landing gear, bombs and a clear 'Triangle World' base. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The instructions and decals are in factory-new condition.

Aurora Eastern Airlines DC-9 Medium Distance Commercial Jet, 1/72, 357-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$169   

Still factory sealed. 1966 early issue with Eastern decals. This is still the only injection molded 1/72 scale DC-9 ever produced. The kit is molded in white plastic and includes the clear triangle Aurora 'Globe' stand and stand arm. Please NOTE that the seal has several tiny splits and wear. Someone cut the '250' off the part number - retailers often did this so that they could sell the kit for more, especially out west. While this is a very nice example, the wear to the seal and the missing part numbers on the box make this kit far from 'mint' condition.

Aurora C-119 Flying Boxcar, 1/77, 393-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Fair

$58   

Still factory sealed but the box is only fair. 1960s issue with oval logo. Close to 1/72 scale. Kit has many nice features: cargo doors open and close to show full interior - removable loading ramps - Field gun/parachute/sled cargo - Jeep/parachute/sled cargo - rotating props and full cockpit.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/48, 102-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$55   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This logo was only used for this one year - in 1957 it was replaced by the 'Famous Fighters' oval 'Sunburst'. The box artist on this issue is Jim Cox, one of the first if not the first box artist for Aurora. This kit is part of a very successful WWI aircraft line in 1/48 scale that Aurora introduced this year. The line sold so well that kits were added to it into the 1960s. Molded in the glossy olive drab green and black. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s.
