$65   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

1968 issue of the famous tandem light aircraft that saw civil and military service. After Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they reissued the Comet civil light aircraft line. It appears that Aurora may have been inspired by the Comet kits or sales of the reissues, and they produced several more new molds to add to the line. This Skymaster is one of those kits. Since the model was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with front and back bulkheads, four bucket seats and instrument panel, clear windows and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$32   

Third issue with the original issue artwork still dated 1956; but actually this kit is from the early/mid 1960s. This is the final issue to retain the original Jim Cox artwork. In the first issue, there is a square Northern Lights logo in the lower left. In the second issue, it has been replaced with the first famous oval logo sunburst. In this issue, the post-'Famous Fighters' blue oval has been placed in the upper left, allowing us to the see the complete artwork. Molded in gloss dark olive green and black plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box is intact but has stains and damage, so it is graded 'fair' and is not collectible. The decals are intact but have stains on the backing paper - the actual transfers are clear.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$69   

Still factory sealed. Big 'A' logo issue dated 1972. Likely the third issue of this kit.

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 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.
