Aurora North American F-86D Sabre Jet, 1/48, 77-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

Sold   

Hardbox issue dated 1960 with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork. This would be a mid-1960s issue since it has no 'Famous Fighters' in the oval and the price extension is 130. The model is from the modified Brooklyn U-Ma-Kit molds; the original 1950s release had no landing gear, ordinance or drop tanks but this issue does. Molded in sliver and clear with the famous Aurora clear triangle-world map stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and all plastic parts and instructions are present. NOTE: missing decals.

Aurora Breguet 14, 1/48, 141-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

Sold   

Dated 1963 with artwork by Jo Kotula. This actual example is probably from the mid 1960s judging from the '100' price extension. Molded in gloss green and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora N-156 Freedom Fighter (F-5), 1/48, 140-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

Sold   

Dated 1962 and features fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork; however, from the logo and price extension, this example is from the mid 1960s. The box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition with very light wear (to the corners and edges) as the only significant flaws. This kit is a 'very good' representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice. It was renamed the F-5 and the rest is history - it became one of the most widely used fighter/bombers in post-WWII history and is still in service in some air forces. Kit includes pilot, cockpit and instrument panel, three drop tanks and early AIM-9 Sidewinder Air-to-Air Missiles. Molded in white and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Sopwith Triplane Black Maria, 1/48, 100-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Dated 1963 but it more likely from 1965/66 due to the 100 price extension. Jo Kotula did the stunning box artwork. Nicely done kit for that time with fair cockpit and engine detail, ground base, pilot figure and mechanic. Molded in gloss black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note, the box has wear as shown and is graded only 'good.'

Aurora Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 66-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc-

Sold   

Still factory sealed but the seal has shrunk and drawn the box top slightly concave. Very rare and especially in sealed condition. The seal is completely intact with no splits. Jo Kotula painted this amazing box art for the 1958 issue. Although this box has a 1958 copyright date, this issue is actually later, from the mid 1960s. Judging from the '100' price extension, this is close to or the final issue of this kit by Aurora.

Aurora The Wanderer Whaler - HO Scale, 1/87, 440-595

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

Sold   

Rare 1966 hardbox issue of this very large, two-foot long classic commercial whaler. Well detailed for that time. This was one of a series of large-scale sailing ships made by Aurora to appeal to the serious ship modeler. Molded in correct dark wood, black, tan, ivory and white. Features billowing sails, metal anchor chain, running and standing rigging, molded ratlines and display stand. It has not been started. The parts that were factory sealed are all still factory sealed. Only the white sail parts were never factory sealed, and they have been inventoried complete. Includes decals, flag sheet, metal chain, rigging thread and detailed, illustrated instructions. The Wanderer was built in Mattapoiset, MA in 1878 and was the last sailing whaleship to depart the US on a whaling voyage. She sailed from New Bedford on 24 August 1924 and was driven ashore on Cuttyhunk Island by a gale the next day and became a total loss. (from Joe Greenley)

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Rare and even rarer in this condition. Aurora USA issue retains the same artwork as the 1956 issue. From the logo style, this example dates from about 1965, although the copyright date for the artwork still says 1956. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling box art. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the Aurora sunburst oval logo. There are no seal splits, fading or stains, tape or price tags, but there is very light crease at top center. 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.
