  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$150   

Still factory sealed. Rare and even rarer in this condition. Aurora of Canada issue is dated 1964 and this issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. There is no fading or stains, tape or price tags, but there is light crease along the upper left side. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.

Aurora F8U-1 Crusader - (F8 / F8U1), 1/48, 119-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$120   

Very rare first issue from 1957. This box art was used for only one year or less; then Aurora changed to the much more common 'ground' artwork. This model was a very good early effort by Aurora and features retractable landing gear, removable tail section, removable & detailed jet engine, pilot, 'fair' cockpit detail and more. Molded in the correct glossy light gray and clear plastic. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Everything inside is correct for this issue, including the 1st issue instructions, large clear rectangular-based stand and early decal sheet correctly lacking the stand decal.

Aurora Lockheed F-94C Starfire, 1/82, 495-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$42   

Dated 1961. Dramatic Jo Kotula box art. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. The decals have some light damage affecting several of the transfers as they were once stuck to the instructions.

Aurora De Havilland DH-10 Bomber, 1/48, 125-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$125   

1957 original issue in amazing, investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. Very light wear is the only flaw. This is the first issue of this large scale (1/48) kit and part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular that these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business. Includes three crew, ground base and two ground crew. Molded in the correct gloss dark olive, black and clear plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Focke-Wulf Fw-190 - Famous Fighters Logo Issue, 1/47, 30-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$175   

Still factory sealed with the box in amazing, investment-grade "Mint" condition. The seal is 100% intact and the kit has no more wear than it left the assembly line. Dated 1960 and the first issue with this artwork. Note the 79 cent price extension and "Famous Fighters" in the border of the oval sunburst logo, which is unique to the 1960 release.

Aurora Bristol F.2B Brisfit Fighter (F-2B) - Western Front No. 48 Sq R.F.C. Pilot Keith Park / No. 22 Sq Pilot Vert Galand, 1/48, 776

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

Aurora PBY-5A Catalina, 1/74, 374-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Rare, first issue from about 1956. This was a fine effort by Aurora for that time and an impressive model when assembled. Features retracting pontoons and rotating propellers. Includes correct early logo instructions which show the clear 'Triangle World' stand. This correct stand is included. This must be one of the first instances of the 'Triangle' stand being used as it is normally associated with oval 'Famous Fighter' logo kits. Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. It is interesting to note that the early Aurora PBY issue has at least three small variations to the box top. The very first issue says '1/4 SCALE MODEL' at the top right. Clearly, this kit is not 1/48 scale and someone at Aurora corrected it. Following that, there are two known corrections: early and late. On the early version, the '1/4' was blotted out with a dark blue oval or circle and '5/32' was added after the word 'SCALE.' It was now correct, but the appearance was not completely professional. This box is the later version - on the next box order, they kept the '1/4' blotted out but added a proper looking '5/32' in front of the blot.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$49   

SALE!! Dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. This is the second issue; please note 69 cent price extension, 'Famous Fighters' logo border and the Parents' Magazine Seal at the right. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Aurora Lightning P-38 - Famous Fighters of All Nations, 1/48, 99-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$125   

Rare. Third issue with rectangular 'Aurora Line' logo and Famous Fighters of All Nations on the box top. The box has four solid and original corners, no repairs, tags, tag marks or tape (other than the factory sealing tape) but has moderate wear and very light age foxing as shown, hence the grade of 'good.' Inside, this model is molded in a stunning and beautiful correct gloss medium blue plastic and clear. It includes the correct early rectangular clear stand and stand arm. The model has never been started and is inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Even the original factory tissue packing paper is present. NOTE: the decal were previously stuck to the instructions in several small areas. The actual transfers are in 'excellent' condition; the damage is to the backing paper only.

Aurora Voodoo F-101, 1/136, 294-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$65   

1958 dated hardbox that is in exceptional 'Near Mint' condition. It would have graded nearly mint, but there is a '40' in black ink written on the right short side when the kit was marked down to this new price. Molded in silver and clear with full landing gear, display stand and decals for 'FB-419.' The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 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.
