  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora Boeing 727 TWA Jetliner - (727-100), 1/96, 354-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$95   

Rare 2nd issue dated 1963 but with the '249' kit number extension. If you look closely, this is the same artwork as the United 727 from 1962, but the Aurora artist carefully paint out the United markings, added the TWA Starstream markings and removed the UNITED neon sign from the background. Large, near 1/100 scale kit includes full landing gear, clear cockpit windows, full color decals and display stand. This model remains popular with 1/100 airliner modelers because it is the only 'short' body (-100) near this scale. Molded in white and clear with the big, clear 'world' triangle display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing 737 Commercial Jet United Air Lines, 1/72, 359-250

$129   

Rare 1/72 scale 737 dated 1966 with great Roy Grinnell boxart. Third issue with the 2.50 price extension instead of the earlier 1.98 or 2.49. Given the 250 price extension, this exact kit was likely issued around 1967/68. Molded in white and clear, with the large clear 'Triangle World' display base. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$65   

1964 hardbox release of the classic 1956 kit with the box in investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. Gloss and color are as new with four solid corners and no price tags or tape. Very light wear is the only flaw. Molded in red. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora French Nieuport 11 - Canada Issue, 1/48, 101-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$55   

Rare hardbox issue is dated 1964 and includes the third issue artwork with French instructions announcement. This is the final issue to retain the original Jim Cox artwork. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. The box displays much higher than the 'excellent' grade but is rated as such due to a hard-to-see flaw on the lower wing of the foreground lower wing. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with "CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.

Aurora Bell AH-1G Huey Cobra - Assault Helicopter, 1/48, 501

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$59   

Still factory sealed. Big 'A' logo issue dated 1972. Likely the third issue of this kit. In the late 1960s Aurora realized that the older molds were out of date and modelers were demanding more realism. They made a new set of molds for ships, airplanes and helicopters. These were significant improvements as the new molds were on par with current offerings. This Cobra kit is one of the improved new mold kits. Features full cockpit, pilot and copilot figures, rotating main and rear rotors and optional weapons load - miniguns or rocket pods.

Aurora Sopwith Camel, 1/47, 102-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$55   

Rare early 1960s issue and harder to find than the original 1956 release. This was only made for a year or two before the new artwork release. Please note the full, original artwork (the only issue with such) due to the 'transparent' new simplified oval logo at the lower right. The side logos still have the old 'Famous Fighters' in the border. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic and with the chock ground base and pilot & mechanic figures. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora French Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$65   

Still factory sealed. Rare, and even more so in sealed condition. Third issue with the original issue artwork still dated 1956 -but actually this kit is from the early/mid 1960s. This is the final issue to retain the original Jim Cox artwork. In this issue, the post-'Famous Fighters' blue oval has been placed in the upper left, allowing us to the see the complete artwork. (The first issue had the square Northern Lights logo in the lower left; the second issue replaced it with the early famous oval logo sunburst.) Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box is graded 'Sealed Exc+' because there is very light foxing on the left side below the 2nd aircraft. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with "CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$85   

1967 issue. After the sales slow down in the mid 1960s, Aurora realized that it must put out higher quality models to compete; this AH-1G is one of those highly improved kits. Features very fine raised surface detail, very good dual cockpits, crew of two, external ordnance, rotating main and tail rotors and more. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
