  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora Douglas DC-8 Jetliner TCA Trans-Canada Air Lines and Air Canada, 1/103, 390-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

$179   

Very rare. Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint+' condition. Aurora Plastics of Canada, Ltd. issue from 1964. Nicely done, large, very near 1/100 scale kit with full landing gear detail. Molded in white and clear and with the classic large clear Aurora 'World Triangle' base. According to the box top, this kit comes with two sets of decals - a large sheet of classic TCA markings for CF-TJA 801 which includes all TCA and DC-8 logos, stripes, windows, registration and more. The other sheet very large and extensive Air Canada decal sheet featuring full white and red vertical stabilizer and rudder wraps, complete side striping and windows, cockpit windows (although the kit has clear cockpit windows), black glare panel, full side logos, doors and registration CF-TJA. Naturally I cannot confirm this as the kit is still factory sealed; that is simply what I see in opened issues I have had. Aurora Canada issued the DC-9, 747 and DC-8 with this colorful Air Canada paint scheme.

Aurora CVN-65 USS Enterprise Attack Carrier For Motorizing, 1/400, 720-995

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$175   

First issue dated 1961 with John Steel box artwork. Aurora pulled out all the stops on this very large kit with a very large tooling cost to match. The result is a nicely detailed model that is well-designed for actual operation in water. As a bonus, the first issue only had the flight deck pre-painted with black background and white lines (as per the box art) and is in very good shape. The kit is over 33 inches long when assembled and is intended to be motorized. Very easy conversion to R/C (remote control). Aurora sold a separate motorizing kit that contained the electric motors and other needed parts. This kit features four (5 bladed) props, stuffing boxes, dual operational rudders, a very large sheet color decals for the ship and airwing, waterline striping tape, moving elevators, twin Sea Sparrow launchers, plated display stand, detailed island structure with clear windows, large airwing with 40 aircraft including F-4 Phantom, F-8 Crusader, A-4 Skyhawk and two Hup Helicopters and more. The kit has never been started. Many parts are still in the factory sealed internal bags. The ones that were no longer sealed have been inventoried and the actual ship is complete but NOTE: the display stand is missing one small round ball (an end cap on a rod) and the instructions look like photocopies; however, Aurora also issued them exactly like this when they ran out of originals (I have seen it often). Otherwise complete with all other parts. Aurora sold the motorizing parts separately and they are not included. In case you are curious, the 'sold separately' parts are two steel ballast weights, four brass battery clips and 4 battery contacts, wire, two electric motors and small nuts and bolts. All other hardware, gear boxes, motor mounts, worm gears, stuffing boxes, metal shafts and tubes, battery box etc are included with the standard kit.

Aurora The Hartford - Admiral Farragut's Flagship at Mobile Bay, 1/115, 441-600

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$255   

1966 issue. The Hartford was the flagship of Rear Admiral David Farragut. In the Hartford he lead the Union Fleet to capture the Confederate forts guarding Mobile Bay, the only part of the Gulf Coast still in Confederate hands. In this long battle Farragut scored one of the key naval victories of the war. Very large and well detailed kit. Measures over 2 feet long and features metal anchor chain, running and standing rigging and molded ratlines and sails. The kit has never been started. All gray and black parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The white parts were never factory sealed but have been inventoried complete. The brown parts bag had a split so I opened it and did an inventory and NOTE: missing (1) part, the martingale ('spike' down from the bowsprit). I have included a properly tapered yard of good size from a built Hartford so you can reproduce this part and build the model. Includes instructions, rigging materials and flag sheet.

$45   

Still factory sealed but the seal has a split on both short sides. Box has a 1956 date on it, but this a 1960s issue hardbox. Most likely from 1963+ because of the simplified Aurora logo and $1 price extension on the part number.
