1/8 473 Aurora The Black Knight of Nurnberg
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG+++
From Aurora of England, 1969 or very early 1970. Classic and very popular knight kit from the original molds. This example is from the 1963 release. Large 1/8 scale kit is molded gloss black and has the original plumes. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions. In the mid 1950s, Aurora bought three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics and issued them as K1, K2 and K3. These were the very first Aurora figure kits and they sported the 1956-only rectangular 'Northern Lights' logo with the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it. The sales success of the Knight prompted Aurora to launch an entire line of figure kits. The knights themselves stayed in production long after many other figures were discontinued.
