1/72 6610 Aurora-Heller Yakovlev Yak-3 (Yak-III) - Two USSR Aircraft - Normandie-Niemen French Squadron - Aurora Heller Issue
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Exc+
The Normandie-Niemen French Squadron was made up of French pilots who flew on the Eastern Front. Very nicely molded with recessed control surfaces and fine raised panel lines. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. Unusual Aurora-Heller kit. One of Aurora's last efforts was to market quality Heller kits with the "Aurora-Heller" name. It was a good fit - Heller made quality kits but did not have the extreme marketing reach that Aurora had in North America. The kits could obviously be produced without a significant capital expense for Aurora since Heller had already cut the molds. Heller molded the kits in France, shipped them to the USA, and Aurora added instructions and a box. Although this was a good idea, Aurora's problems went much deeper and it certainly was not enough to save the company.
