1/16 574-198 Aurora Old Timers 1911 Buick Bug
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Good-
NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. 1963 first issue of Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model with Plated Parts.' Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full engine, transaxle and driveline detail. It builds up a rolling chassis like the real car, and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. Molded in gloss dark green, gloss ivory and with plated parts and real rubber tires. Never started. NOTE: Missing one front spring and one clear lens. Lens has no pattern, so it will be easy to reproduce. Front spring can be cast in resin using the present side as master. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions. There are some tire 'burn marks' but nothing that cannot be fixed. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.
