  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora North American B-25 Mitchell - Famous Fighters Of All Nations Issue, 1/46, 373-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$125   

Second issue dated 1957. Please note that on this issue, it still says 'Famous Fighters Of All Nations' but the rectangular Aurora Line logo has been 'yellowed' out and the new Famous Fighters oval and sunburst logo added. Big near-1/48 scale model is molded in silver and clear. Aurora's research showed that the very young plastic model kit market might support much larger, expensive kits with improved margins; the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were issued their success insured they would remain in production almost to the end. Never started. Inventoried and NOTE: missing one part, one clear side window. Otherwise complete with all other parts, decals, instructions and clear triangle Aurora 'World' stand. Please note that this box displays much better than the 'very good++' rating. It is rated as such because there a few small areas of bug damage to the litho on the side panels and some edge wear at the top right.

Aurora 1913 Mercer Raceabout Old Timers, 1/16, 572-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$129   

1961 issue. 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 suspension, 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 ivory, gloss black and with chrome plated parts and real rubber tires. The kit has never been started. Inside, it is exactly as it left the factory. The black and chrome parts are still in the factory sealed bags. The ivory and clear were never factory sealed and have been inventoried complete including the instructions. 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.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$175   

Rare issue dated 1963 and from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, clear side and front windows, tip tanks, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.

Aurora Piper Aztec C, 1/72, 282-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$155   

1968 issue and still the only injection molded Aztec kit. After Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they reissued the Comet civil light aircraft line. It appears that Aurora may have been inspired by the Comet kits or sales of the reissues, and they produced several more new molds to add to the line. This Aztec is one of those kits. Since the kit was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with a sofa, four seats and instrument panel, optional position landing gear and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
