Aurora Rockwell 1121 Jet Commander, 1/72, 85-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$65   

1968 issue hardbox issue. Nice kit for that time. Features recessed panel lines, full interior with rear bulkhead, couch, chairs and console, cockpit with chairs, instrument panel, control yokes, forward bulkhead and clear windows. Includes optional position landing gear and colorful decals. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried and NOTE: missing one main gear strut. Includes all other parts, decals and instructions. NOTE: one cabin seat was broke and repair, the repair is only 'fair.' The Jet Commander was the jet powered follow-on to the famous Aero Commander twin private aircraft. But shortly after 1121 delivery began in 1965, Rockwell bought Aero Commander. The 1121 was competition for the Rockwell Sabreliner business jet in the same class, so Rockwell sold the Jet commander to IAI. Initial releases under IAI were called the 1123. Improvements to the 1123 design lead to the IAI 1124 Westwind powered by 731 fan engines. Legend has it that these molds were lost and/or destroyed in a train wreck. Monogram bought Aurora's molds and was transporting them to the Monogram factory when the accident happened.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$155

Email for availability.

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. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note, one prop retainer is short shot. This part is easily made and is not visible when the kit is assembled.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc-

$155   

Still factory sealed but the seal has split on the right short side. Second issue hardbox is dated 1961 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. The actual issue date is likely 62/63 since there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the Aurora sunburst logo. Very large 1/48 scale kit with good cockpit and rotor detail, moving rotors, clear side and cockpit windows and full decals.

First issue dated 1957 with timeless Jo Kotula artwork. Molded in deep burgundy and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora Aero Commander 680, 1/81, 285

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$165   

Aurora of Canada issue dated 1964. Still the only plastic kit of this venerable corporate workhorse. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Aero Commander was a state-of-the-art twin engine light transport from the early 1960s. It was built by Aero Design and Engineering Co. of Bethany, Oklahoma. It was the first twin engine aircraft to be used by the President of the United States and served in this capacity in the early 1960s. This high performance 5 to 7 place was popular with business travelers and had a range of 1,050 miles and a ceiling of 22,000 feet. The Aero Commander led to the Jet Commander, which became the IAI 1121 through 1124 Westwind business jets. Aero Commanders can still be seen at some airports in excellent condition, but many are neglected as newer aircraft are in favor.

Aurora F-86D Sabre Jet, 1/48, 77-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$59   

Hardbox is dated 1960. Note the 'Famous Fighters' oval logo which is hard-to-find on this box art. Furthermore, there is no Parents' Magazine seal, so this issue is likely from 1961 or 1962. This model is a modification of the original Brooklyn U-Ma-Kit molds, featuring landing gear, two wing drop tanks, 8 wing-mounted missiles, extended rocket tray, clear triangle display stand and decals for 'YF-578.' Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$55   

Dated 1957 but likely from 1959 due to the 29 cent price extension, 'Famous Fighters' in the oval and lack of a price circle and Parents' Magazine seal. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

$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.
