Aurora Lockheed P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 99-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$79   

The Jo Kotula box artwork is dated 1959, but the kit is from the late 1960s due to the '130' price extension, lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the ovals and block logo on the instructions. Molded in silver and clear the the 'triangle' clear stand and stand arm. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora Focke-Wulf Fw-190, 1/48, 30-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$179   

Very rare hardbox issue dated 1959. Please note that this one has the 'Famous Fighters' oval logo and the Parents' Magazine seal at the upper right. The box is in exceptional condition. The color and gloss is like new. All four corners are solid and original and there is no edge wear, fading, water stains, tape or price tags on the box. The only flaws are a tiny bit of corner wear, light marks from the factory sealing tape and a tiny (7 x 3 millimters) tear from that tape on one long side. Molded in the correct gloss black and clear and includes the correct Aurora 'Triangle World' two piece clear stand. Instructions have the same logo as the box and also have the Parents' seal. The decals are in 'excellent+' condition. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Convair 880 SuperJet TWA, 1/103, 384-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$95   

SALE!! Dated 1961 and has the second issue logo, so this kit is likely from the mid 1960s. Rare near 1/100 scale kit molded in white and clear with recessed control surface and door lines. Features clear cockpit windshield, full landing gear and a large clear 'Triangle World' stand. The Convair 880 and its near-sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs. The 990 was a larger and faster (mach .91) airliner, but it failed to meet it's range criteria for east to west crossings of the USA. As a result, only 37 were made. Interestingly enough, several 990s continued to be operated by private owners and NASA operated two 990s for decades after the last 990 was phased out of commercial service.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$65   

1958 issue with fantastic Jo Kotula boxart. This is the Parents' Magazine issue with the seal located in the lower right. Classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga) that the group was based on and the aircraft's position in the flight formation. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$225   

Rare 1956 issue with the square 'Northern Lights' logo and arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 artwork from the "Golden Era" of modeling. This is the second issue of this kit. The box is in exceptional condition with brilliant colors and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. Light edge wear as the only flaw. Responding to market sources that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years. Never started and inventoried 100% complete with very high gloss silver parts, correct large 'Globe' two piece clear stand and correct decal sheet, mint condition instructions and even the original packing tissue paper.
