With the Arison Enine, developed for low sky flight, it showed lack of flying high and its capcity weakened in flying high. Air Forces of the Britain put it into the Support Corps for the Army.'

Aurora-Heller North American P-51D Mustang - USAAF 20th Air Force Pacific Theater / 8th Air Force Europe, 1/72, 6607

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Unusual Aurora-Heller kit. One of Aurora's last efforts was to market quality Heller kits with the "Aurora-Heller" name. It was a good fit - Heller made quality kits but did not have the extreme marketing reach that Aurora had in North America. The kits could obviously be produced without a significant capital expense for Aurora since Heller had already cut the molds. Heller molded the kits in France, shipped them to the USA, and Aurora added instructions and a box. Although this was a good idea, Aurora's problems went much deeper and it certainly was not enough to save the company. This kit has not been started. The parts are either still in the factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
