Aurora USS Independence CV62 Aircraft Carrier, 1/600, 700-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$115

Full hull kit includes prop and rudder detail, detailed island and 5 inch gun turrets, gun directors, flight deck decals and an air wing of Cutlass F7U, FJ Furys, F11F Tigers and helicopters. Molded in dark gray with a light gray air wing. The kit has never been started. The airwing is still factory sealed and all other parts have been 1nventoried 100% complete and include decals and instructions. NOTE: the decal sheet is for CV59 Forrestal and CV60 Saratoga.

Aurora Fokker D-7 (D-VII) Giant Screwdriver Kit, 1/19, 398-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$179   

1967 hardbox issue. The D-VII and several other aircraft were originally designed for a gas motor U-Control, but Aurora decided to discontinue gas powered models after a short release time. The reason for this is unknown, but it may have been related to liability or return volume. In order to further utilize the expensive molds, Aurora released the entire line as static 'Giant Size Models' with screwdriver assembly - known today as 'Aurora Screwdriver Kits.' This is that version. Very large kit molded in bright gloss red, black and with many metal parts. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the decals are intact but have brown age spots and very bad age cracking.

Includes clear cockpit windows, full landing gear, display stand and a large PSA decal sheet. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The decals are in rare 'mint' condition.

Aurora Focke-Wulf FW-190, 1/47, 30-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$125   

Dated 1960. Hardbox release of the classic Aurora kit. The box has great color and gloss and four solid corners. There are no tape or tape marks and no price tags; light general wear is the only flaw. Notice the 'Sunburst' logo with no 'Famous Fighters' in the oval, which dates this kit closer to the mid 1960s. Molded in black and clear with the clear triangular 'globe' display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Mint factory seal. 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 Sikorsky CH-54A Skycrane - Young Model Builders Club Issue, 1/72, 753

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$42   

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.

Aurora The Blue Knight of Milan, 1/8, 472

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$69   

Still sealed with the factory tape on both long ends. 1960s Aurora of Great Britain issue with brilliant box art. Kit contains large 1/8 scale knight, base, plume and instructions. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc-

$45   

Dated 1957 but is actually the third issue with the 'ground' artwork and simplified oval logo. Likely from 1963/64 as it still has the 98 cent price extension.
