Aurora Fokker DR-1 Triplane - Marfred von Richthofen Or Unknown Pilot From Jasta 26, 1/48, 750

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$29   

This 1976 issue is Aurora's much improved 'mold update' which was performed on many of the WWI kit line. First issued from 1956 with square Northern Lights logo, this kit was made much more accurate. Features a good cockpit, pilot, detailed engine, excellent rigging instructions, a fine fabric texture to the proper parts, no outlines for markings placement and improved decals for two different aircraft, as well as a very good paint guide. For Aurora however, it was too late and the company shortly went under. Molded in a much more realistic red and with an improved decal sheet. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 Fighter, 1/48, 33-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$159   

Rare 1/48 scale kit. Hardbox is dated 1958 and it is from this year due to the Parents' Magazine Seal and the 'Famous Fighters' present in the oval logo sunburst logo. Large-scale model is molded in silver and clear and includes full landing gear and wing-mounted rockets. With the clear triangle-based two-piece stand. Molded in silver and clear. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note that the box top is graded 'very good' condition. It displays slightly better but is graded as such because of edge wear along the top right and some corner wear. This is reissue of one of Aurora's first two kits (F-90 and F9F) which were copies of the Hawk molds.

Aurora Grumman F4F Wildcat, 1/65, 497-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$46   

Dated 1962 but is from 1963-65 due to the 50 cent price extension and lack of Famous Fighters on the logo border.. Molded in a beautiful dark blue and clear. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Grumman F4F Wildcat, 1/65, 497-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$44   

Dated 1962 but is from the mid 1960s since there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the border; most likely the third issue. Molded in beautiful dark blue and clear. Never started. Inventoried with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora North American F-100 Super Sabre, 1/103, 490-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$52   

Dated 1961 with the great Jim Cox artwork that makes early Aurora kits so collectible. This issue has a slightly larger box than earlier ones. It is a nicely done kit for that time, molded in gloss silver and clear with full landing gear and clear 'Triangle World Map' stand. Never started. Inventoried complete with all parts, decals and instructions present. Please note, this is not a reissue of the Comet model. Aurora cut these molds years before acquiring Comet's F-100.

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart (YF-102) - (Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-39

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$49   

Hardbox issue dated 1957, but from the mid 1960s due to the oval logo with the blue outline. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork is nicely molded with clear canopy, full landing gear and display stand. This is a model of the very early YF-102 prototype with the straight (non-area rule) fuselage. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. Around this time, Aurora issued a series of inexpensive (usually 29 cent) small scale kits that were designed to sell at almost any type of retail location. The line was successful and further expanded - when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, they fit in nicely with this established line.

Aurora Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, 1/270, 494-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$95   

1961 issue hardbox with the dramatic Jo Kotula artwork that made these kits so famous and collectible. Nicely molded small scale kit with full main landing gear, outrigger gear, clear canopy and auxiliary gas tanks on the outboard wings. Molded in the correct gloss silver and clear with the clear 'Triangle World' stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. It is interesting to note that this kit is not a reissue of the Comet molds - this kit is original to Aurora. The Aurora kit is significantly larger that the Comet issue and varies in a great many details.

Aurora De Haviland DH-10 Bomber - 'Parents Magazine' Seal Issue, 1/48, 125-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$65   

Dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula box art. This is the edition with the Parent's Magazine approval seal on the box and the instructions. Molded in the correct high-gloss olive drab, black and clear. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Even includes the original tissue packing paper. Please NOTE that the box displays slightly better than the 'fair' rating; however, it is only graded as 'fair' because there is tape residue on all of the sides as well as wear.

Aurora The Barnstormers Customizing Kit DH-4 and JN-4 Jenny, 1/48, 200-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$179   

Rare one-and-only 1960 issue that contains both the DH-4 and Curtis JN-4 Jenny. The box is in exceptional condition with 'excellent' color and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or price tags (and no marks from either), no stains, fading or torn/missing litho. Very light wear and edge wear are the only significant flaws. Aurora really went out of the way to make this a special kit; however, it did not sell well and was retired after one year. Features completely new box artwork, a DH-4 molded in gloss dark green and black, the JN-4 molded in gloss bright yellow and black, great custom decal sheets for both aircraft and special 'Barnstormer' instructions for each aircraft. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts present and includes decals and instructions. The instructions sheets are both in 'near mint' condition and the decal sheets are both completely flat with the typical age yellowing as the only significant flaw.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$79   

True 1960 hardbox issue with oval logo with 'Famous Fighters' in the logo border. The art by Jo Kotula perfectly highlights the 'Golden Age' of box art. This model is very close to 1/72 scale and has many great features including full interior for both cockpit and cargo area, cargo doors open and close, removable loading ramps, two cargo pallets with field gun, parachute & sled and jeep, parachute & sled, rotating props and more. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box would grade higher than 'very good' but it is given that rating because there is a price tag tear on the short left side panel.

Aurora Martin B-26D Marauder, 1/46, 371-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$129   

Sale Pending
Email for availability.

This popular kit is dated 1961 and is a true issue from that year because it has 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the Aurora logo. When Aurora moved to the West Hempstead plant, all model kits had been fairly small. But they planned a series of very large bombers. Aurora's instincts were correct, and the B-26, B-25 and B-29 were a sales success. Correctly molded in silver and clear and with the large, clear triangle base stand. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays better than 'excellent' but it graded as such because is corner wear and a 1/2" x 1/2" tape tear on the lower long box side panel.

Aurora P-51 Mustang Screwdriver Issue, 1/27, 377-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

$275   

Still factory sealed and in remarkable investment-grade 'Near Mint+' condition. The seal is intact. 1969 hardbox issue. This kit was originally designed as a gas powered flying model. However, Aurora discontinued the gas powered line very shortly after introduction due to returns and liability issues. Since the mold investment was already made, Aurora marketed these kits as large scale static models and they became know as "Screwdriver Kits" to collectors. For example, the 1/32 scale B-25 was issued in Gas U-Control and then static - but the P-51 may have only been issued in static.

Aurora HC-1B Chinook (CH-47), 1/48, 350-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM++

$165   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint++' condition. 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.

Aurora Republic P-47 D Thunderbolt, 1/53, 81-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$89   

Factory sealed and rare in this condition. Dated 1964 but most likely from about 1965/66. From ex-Comet molds. Comet was an early kit manufacture that produced a nice line of small and mid-scale civil and military kits before selling the molds to Aurora. For many kits, Comet cut both small scale and medium to large scale molds. This is the larger of the two P-47 molds by Comet and it features all recessed panel lines and the aircraft is in 'in flight' configuration.

Aurora SNJ Trainer, 1/48, 80-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$65   

Still factory sealed. Aurora of Canada issue dated 1964. This was a good kit for the time, featuring 'good' cockpit detail, pilot and student figures, rotating prop and US Navy decals.
