First issue dated 1962. John Steel hardbox artwork. Has 'Famous Fighters in the border of the Aurora Sunburst logo and the 49 cent price extension.

Aurora Atomic Submarine Nautilus SS571, 1/242, 500-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$225   

Rare, Brooklyn-produced, early 1950s U-Ma-Kit. This was Aurora's first naval model. Molded in the correct glossy very dark gray plastic and includes a display stand and decals to match the box art. Never started and complete with all parts, remarkable 'excellent' condition decals and 'near mint' instructions. Even the original factory tissue packing paper is present. The box has excellent color, four solid corners with no repairs, no fading and no price tags. The only tape is the factory sealing tape on the long sides. There is light general shelf wear and edge wear as shown.

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 Convair 880 Jetliner Delta, 1/103, 383-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+++

$189   

Still in the factory seal - the seal has a 2 inch split on one long side. Rare 1960 Delta Airlines issue. The Convair 880 and it's near sister 990 were very high performance airliners. Unfortunately they did not find favor with commercial operators. Only 65 880s were produced from 1959 to 1962. The aircraft was designed to be smaller and faster than the DC-8 and 707 - this market did not develop, however, and if it did it could have been served with less expensive designs.

Aurora Convair B-58 Hustler, 1/76, 375-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$149   

Rare hardbox issue dated 1958 with fantastic Jo Kotula art. Big-scale kit is molded in gloss gray and clear. This kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Very rare, first and only hardbox issued as a tie-in promotion with Twentieth Century Fox Television's hit "12 O'Clock High." Dated 1965. Some of the most valuable models are linked to TV or movie promotions and the "12 O'Clock High" series from Aurora is no exception. Molded in silver and clear with the correct large 'Battle Damaged' decal sheet, which is in 'excellent++' condition. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE the box bottom has a closed split along one long side. Other kits in the series included the B-17, P-51, P-38, Me-109 and FW-190.

Aurora Boeing 707 Pan Am Clipper, 1/104, 381-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$129   

Dated 1958, but likely from the very early 1960s judging from the oval logo with no 'Famous Fighters' in the boarder. Wonderful box artwork by Jo Kotula. One of Aurora's first airliner kits. Molded in white and clear with the large clear 'Triangle' Globe base. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

$42   

Third issue of this kit. Box is dated 1956 but this is the ~1959 issue with the 'Famous Fighters' logo, 79 cent price extension and no Parents' Magazine Seal. This is a true 79 cent box - there is no 'stamp out' of the old 69. Molded in gloss green and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Fokker D-7 - (D-VII), 1/48, 106-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$45   

Fourth issue of this kit. Until recently, I did not think that there was a 'blue logo' and the 79 cent price extension, but here it is. It retains the original 1956 box art this kit is famous for. Molded in gloss dark green and black. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

Dated 1960 and the first issue with this artwork. Note the 79 cent price extension and "Famous Fighters" in the border of the oval sunburst logo, which is unique to the 1960 release. Molded in gloss black and clear, with the two piece clear triangle-shaped stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora 12 O'Clock High P-38 Lightning, 1/48, 346-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$155   

Very rare first and only hardbox issue from the tie-in promotion with Twentieth Century Fox Television's smash hit "12 O'Clock High." Dated 1965. Some of the most valuable models are linked to TV or movie promotions and the "12 O'Clock High" series from Aurora are no exception. This example has very nicecolor and gloss, four solid corners, no tape or tags and zero fading. Flaws include light wear, a factory 'bunch' in the litho and general scuffs and shown. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Other kits in the series included the B-17, P-51, Me-109 and FW-190.

Aurora British Centurion Tank WWII, 1/48, 300-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$69   

Hard to find 1/48 scale armor kit with a very nice box. John Steel box art is dated 1963. Please note this is the earlier release with the 98 cent price extension. The kit has never been started.

Aurora Halberstadt CL-II, 1/48, 136-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM

$75   

In remarkable 'near mint' condition. Dated 1959, but this is the second issue as the box kit number is unchanged but is lacking the 'Famous Fighters' slogan in the border of the box top oval. It does have 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the box side logos. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E, 1/43, 116-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$49   

In amazing, investment-grade 'mint' condition. The box has perfect color and gloss, four solid corners, no fading or torn litho and no tape or price tags - it has no more wear than if it were just removed from the shrink wrap. The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the border and has no sunburst. Due to the 130 price extension, it is most likely from later 1960s. Features movable rudder, elevators and wing ailerons, cockpit with pilot, seat, instrument panel, gun sight and feet stirrups, auxiliary gas tank and rotating prop & wheels. Molded in gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.
