Aurora Halberstadt CLII Test Shot - (CL-II / CL.II), 1/48, 136-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$149   

Very rare. Factory Test shots were done in colorless plastic to confirm that new molds were ready for production. They seldom left the factory; most were destroyed but some leaked out, usually through employees. This model came from a long time collector and archiver/historian who sold it in the late 1990s; I obtained it from him. The first issue box, dated 1959 with 98 cent price extension has 'Famous Fighters' around the early oval sunburst logo, Parents' Magazine seal and Jo Kotula boxart. Since two different molds were used for the Aurora WWI kits, the main aircraft parts are in clear plastic and the black parts are made from black plastic. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$425   

1958 release of this kit featuring classic Jo Kotula boxart. The large 1/48 scale missile comes with a fully operational scale launcher. The hardbox is 'very good++' with great color and gloss, four solid corners, no price tag or tape tears, no torn or missing litho and no creases. Flaws include edge and corner wear as shown and light general wear. The kit has never been started and is factory new inside right down to the original tissue packing paper. Aurora factory sealed the silver parts and the red missile parts; these are both still sealed. The deep blue parts were not sealed but have been inventoried 100% complete with all parts. Includes decals and instructions in 'excellent' condition. 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.
