Aurora Sikorsky S-55 'Windmill' Helicopter, 1/45, 503-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$385   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This was the only year with this logo, which was quickly replaced in 1957 with the famous oval 'Famous Fighters' version. Incredible 'near mint+' condition hardbox with no more wear than the kit would have upon leaving the shipping crate. This is a large 1/48 scale kit that was issued after Aurora purchased the molds from Helicopter for Industry. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$75   

1957 hardbox issue. The box is in mint condition with as new gloss and color. Please note that this is an earlier issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the Aurora logo. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork. Nicely molded kit with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Internal factory sealed bag or inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.

Aurora Lockheed F-104 Starfighter, 1/110, 291-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$75   

1957 to 1959 issue. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora SNJ Trainer, 1/48, 80-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$69   

Still in the factory seal and in investment grade condition. Hardbox is dated 1960. Very likely the 3rd issue of this kit because the box top oval logo does not have the 'Famous Fighters' in the border, and the price extension is $1, making this from around the mid 1960s. This was a nice kit for the time, featuring good cockpit detail, pilot and student figures, rotating prop and US Navy decals. Molded in yellow and clear.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

Rare one and only 1960 issue that contains both the DH-4 and Curtis JN-4 Jenny. Aurora really went out of the way to make this a special kit; however, it did not sell well and was retired after one year. Features completely new box artwork, the DH-4 molded in dark green, the JN-4 molded in bright yellow, great custom decal sheets for both aircraft and special 'Barnstormer' instructions for each aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora German Sea Raider Atlantis, 1/456, 710-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc +++

$900   

First issue. The hardbox is dated 1959 and has the "Famous Fighters" in the oval 'Northern Lights' logo. This is the only kit made of the infamous German WWII converted merchant raider which was the subject of several books and a major movie called 'Under Ten Flags.' The long WWII voyage was legendary, and the ship is well represented in this full-hull model. Covers can be removed to reveal hidden guns, torpedo tubes and the Ar-196 floatplane. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. From modeler Stephen Payne: Recommend that the builder or collector of this kit add the following books to their collection-The German Raider Atlantis by Captain Bernhard Rogge & Wolfgang Frank & Sea Raider Atlantis, Story of a German Surface Raider by Ulrich Mohr & A.V. Sellwood. The first book is by the ATLANTIS commander, Kapitan zur See Bernhard Rogge. He oversaw the transformation and outfitting in Bremen and captained the ship during her 602 day operational voyager which sank or captured 22 ships totaling 144,384 t (142,104 long tons). Rogge also was one of the few German officers of flag rank who was not arrested by the Allies after the war due to the way he had exercised his command of Atlantis. Captain J. Armstrong White, captain of the British CITY OF BAGHDAD, which Atlantis sank in July 1941, stated, "His treatment of prisoners left respect, instead of hatred."The second book is by the ATLANTIS First Officer, Ulrich Moher. Both books read much the same as the events related are the same, but it is interesting to see these events from the two perspectives. Captain White (see above) wrote the foreword to Atlantis, the Story of a German Surface Raider, written by U. Mohr & A. V. Sellwood.The German auxiliary cruiser Atlantis (HSK 2), known to the Kriegsmarine as Schiff 16 (SHIP 16) and to the Royal Navy as Raider-C, was a converted merchant vessel to German Hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser) used for commerce raiding. Commerce raiders did not seek to engage warships, but rather attack enemy merchant shipping; the measures of success are tonnage destroyed (or captured) and time spent "at large" holding up enemy resources. Atlantis had the longest raiding career of any German commerce raider in either world war.
