Aurora Regulus II Guided Missile with Launcher, 1/48, 378-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$285   

Rare. 1958 release of this famous kit featuring classic Jo Kotula boxart. The large 1/48 scale missile comes with a fully operational scale launcher. Please note the very rare 'Parents' Magazine' golden sticker at the left center. When the agreement with Parents' Magazine was approved, Aurora wanted to implement it immediately. Until new boxes could be made with the seal, they used these very shiny gold and black stickers. The model features a well detailed missile with lower booster and the mobile launcher with good suspension detail, valves boxes and covers, tow bar, servicing and access platforms with railings, elevating main pad and three figures. Molded in the correct deep gloss red, silver and dark blue plastic. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts. Includes decals and instructions in 'very good' condition. One small instrument is neatly broke off the pitot tube at the base, but it is present for a easy repair. This kit must be shipped insured. The Aurora "Missile Line" is legendary. In the late 1950s, the first missile model kits sold briskly, so Aurora and Revell both planned extensive lines. However, the missile modeling craze disappeared as quickly as it started. Models that were in the works were canceled or completed if they were far enough along. Those that were completed were fine efforts but sold poorly and had very short lives, making them rare collector items today.
