First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This logo only appeared for one year. In 1957 it was replaced with the famous oval 'Famous Fighters' Sunburst logo. The artwork is by Jim Cox.

Second release dated 1959. Has sunburst inside the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora oval logo. Incredible artwork with brilliant colors.

Aurora P-40 Warhawk Flying Tiger - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 44A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+++

$250   

Most likely the third issue. From the mid-1950s. Box is in investment grade condition. This is the short-lived issue with the small square 'Aurora Line' logo, unique (to this issue) artwork and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations' logo. Glue for plastic kits was not available in stores early on, so Aurora often included a small but colorful tube of Aurora Cement with the kits. This kit still has that sealed tube in mint condition. Molded in gloss olive drab and clear with one piece wings. Has original rectangular clear stand. Never started. Factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Messerschmitt Me-109 (Bf-109) - Blue Short Box Ends- Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 55A-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM-

$325   

I believe this is the 4th edition of this kit, and the first issue with this Jim Cox boxart. Dates from mid 1955 with small 'Aurora Line' rectangular logo and 'Famous Fighters of All Nations'. It is interesting that this issue did not carry the standard Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo for 1956 - perhaps it was designed at the end of 1955 and simply left that way. Correctly molded in metallic burgundy and clear with the correct rectangular clear stand. For this issue the factory changed the swastikas on the tail to iron crosses and decals as well. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.
