It retains the original 1956 box art, but the square Aurora 'Northern Lights' logo is gone, blotted out with a yellow rectangle and the the soon-to-be classic sunburst 'Famous Fighters' oval.

Aurora Russian Mig-19, 1/48, 66-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$179   

Dated 1958 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork; however, the lack of 'Famous Fighters' in the oval boarder logo means that this kit is from the early 1960s. The box is in amazing 'near mint' investment-grade condition with factory-new color and gloss, four solid corners, no creases, price tags or fading and no tape or even tape marks. The only flaw is very light wear, mainly along the right upper side as shown. Molded in a wonderful gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are both in remarkable 'excellent++' condition.

Aurora British SE-5 Scout, 1/48, 103-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+++

$59   

Rare "Yellow" box art version hardbox is dated 1960 and it appears that this design was only issued for a few years at the most. There are two variations of this rare box - one with the Parents' Magazine Seal and one without; this one has the seal. Molded in gloss olive drab and black. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

$115   

Third issue hardbox dated 1961. Fantastic Jo Kotula artwork. Note the oval sunburst logo with no yellow rectangular background.

Features rotating propellers, full landing gear, auxiliary jet engines, clear canopy & nose and the Aurora 'Triangle World' clear stand. 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, both in 'excellent' condition.

Aurora German Tiger Tank, 1/48, 312-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$59   

Hard to find 1/48 scale armor kit. John Steel hard-box art is dated 1964. The box has very good color and gloss, no tape or price tag marks and four solid corners. Light, general and even wear are the only flaws. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: the treads are intact and 'near mint' but there are tread burns on the inside of one side panel (not visible when built), inside of the lower hull panel (again, not seen when built) and on the gun barrel. The barrel is all there but significantly damaged by the burns. The decal backing paper has bug damage but the actual transfers are intact.

Aurora DeHavilland DH-4 - (DH4), 1/48, 112-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$49   

First issue dated 1957 with classic Jo Kotula artwork. Part of the famous WWI 1/48 scale series of aircraft that Aurora issued starting in 1956. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic, including figures and the ground base with chocks. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Besides it's distinguished career in WWI, the DH-4 saw extensive post war service in numerable ways. One of the most interesting was as a United States Post Office air mail service aircraft. The aircraft's likeness even graced an airmail stamp of the time. In about 1925, the Post Office decided to upgrade. The prototype was the Douglas M-1 and an improved version, the M-2, became the next mail carrier. The M-2 is also an Aurora kit in the same scale.

Aurora Cessna 337 Skymaster, 1/72, 279-70

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$59   

1968 issue of the famous tandem light aircraft that saw civil and military service. 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 Skymaster is one of those kits. Since the model was designed new, it has significantly more detail than the older Comet kits. Features all recessed panel lines, full interior with front and back bulkheads, four bucket seats and instrument panel, clear windows and rotating propellers. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora German Gotha G-V Bomber - Abare Issue - (GV), 1/48, 126-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$89   

Ross Abare issue Gotha in amazing investment-grade, 'Near Mint' condition. Mr. Abare, a rare kits dealer in the earliest days of the hobby, contracted with Aurora to produce a copy of the original 1958 kit. However, Aurora has the printers use the mid 1960s oval logo without the 'Famous Fighters' in the border- thus forever separating the Abare issue from the original issue. Mr. Abare was reportedly quite upset, as he wanted exact copies. Molded in deep burgundy and black plastic. Never started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E, 1/48, 116-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$49   

Dated 1956 but from 1958/59 due to the oval sunburst logo with 'Famous Fighters' and the Parents' Magazine Seal at the right. Oddly, this issue is the rarest. This was a fine kit for that time features movable control surfaces and rotating prop and wheels. Molded in correct glossy dark green with a clear canopy. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$45   

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 N-156 Freedom Fighter - (F-5), 1/48, 140-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$89   

Dated 1962 and features fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork; however, from the logo and price extension, this example is from the mid 1960s. The box is in amazing 'near mint+' condition with very light wear (to the corners and edges) as the only significant flaws. This kit is a 'very good' representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice. It was renamed the F-5 and the rest is history - it became one of the most widely used fighter/bombers in post-WWII history and is still in service in some air forces. Kit includes pilot, cockpit and instrument panel, three drop tanks and early AIM-9 Sidewinder Air-to-Air Missiles. Molded in white and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions present.

Aurora Northorp N-156 Freedom Fighter - (F-5), 1/48, 140-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM

$125   

Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint' condition. The only flaw is a split seal on the right short side. 1962 issue with fantastic Jo Kotula box artwork. This kit is a very good representation of the rare 'Freedom Fighter' prototype N-156. It developed into the F-5, which was widely exported and saw service in over 30 countries. Only three of the N-156 prototypes were built. The design centered around two GE J85 turbojets which originally powered the ADM-20 Quail decoy carried by the B-52 fleet. Initially there seemed to be little demand until President Kennedy's Military Assistance Program required a low-cost fighter that could be provided to US Allies. The N-156 was easily the top choice.

Aurora AT-6 Texan, 1/48, 70-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$44   

Hardbox release dated 1960. This is the harder-to-find issue because it has desirable 'Famous Fighters' in the logo border. The one without 'Famous Fighters' is much more common. This was a nice kit for the time featuring 'good' cockpit detail, pilot and student figures, rotating prop and USAF decals. Molded in silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. NOTE: there is some light bug damage to the instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$75   

1969 Big A hardbox issue with an 'excellent' condition box. Hard to find 1/48 armor kit that has very good detail for that time.

Includes decals for US Army and West German Army. Never started. The actual tank has been inventoried with all parts present and includes decals and instructions but NOTE: missing display base.
