  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$45   

SALE!! First issue from 1956 with the one-year only Northern Lights logo. Art is by Jim Cox. A very nice model for that time that includes a pilot, ground display with chocks and a ground crew member as well. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab and black plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please note that the box displays 'near mint' or better but is graded 'excellent' because there is a 1 inch tape tear (from the factory tape) on the top long side. This kit is one of a very successful line of 1/48 WWI aircraft that Aurora launched in 1956. The line sold so well that new kits were added into the 1960s. Molded in the correct gloss olive drab green and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Thanks to Eugene DuBey, we know some history on the aircraft that Aurora modeled. The tail # on the kit rudder is 1354, the number of a Nie 16 that served with "CAM de Dunquerke / St Pol sur Mer", 1916-17.

Mr. Cox also did unique artwork for the early Aurora Catalogs as well. Molded in the correct metallic deep burgundy. There has been no assembly but NOTE: the crew are neatly painted. NOTE: missing pilot's seat. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present.

Large, near 1/100 scale kit includes full landing gear, clear cockpit windows, full color decals and display stand. Molded in white and clear with the big, clear 'world' triangle display stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. The box top has amazing color and gloss but is graded 'excellent' because there is a ding on the right short side. The box tray is intact but has clear tape on part of it.

$59   

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$100

This issues has a small sticker on both short ends with '150' typed on it. These small stickers cover up the '175' price extension and were often done by manufacturers to just change prices (in place of ordering new boxes).

Aurora Grumman F9F-6 Cougar - (F9F6), 1/82, 293-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$50   

Dated 1957 but actually a mnid 1960s issue due to the newer logo and 50 cent price extension. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Please NOTE the box displays better than the 'very good' grade but is graded as such because there are small pieces of masking tape on the box sides and tray.

Aurora SSN Seawolf Atomic Powered Guided Missile Submarine, 1/242, 706-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$75   

Hard-to-find hard box issue dated 1962 but is actually a mid-1960s issue judging from the 130 cent price extension. Features bow and stern planes, dual props, sail with periscope/antenna cluster, missile tank, missile and launcher and display stand. Molded in black. Please note this is simply a re-box of the Aurora Nautilus kit with Seawolf decals and Aurora's 'dual purpose' instructions that are for both kits! This model has never been started.

Aurora TFX F-111B Navy Fighter Bomber - (Navy F-111 Prototype), 1/48, 369-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$175   

Dated 1966. The only 1/48 scale kit of this subject. The TFX Project was proposed as a way to save money by having the Air Force and Navy use the same aircraft. The F-111B was tested by the Navy but canceled due to the large size of the aircraft. Good kit for that time with swing wings and retractable landing gear. There has been no assembly but NOTE: the pilots are painted orange. There is no other painting. Inventoried complete with all parts present and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora British SE-5 Scout, 1/48, 103-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$55   

Very rare version. Of all the Aurora SE-5, this one turns up the least. The hardbox is dated 1956 but shows the original Jim Cox box art with the 1957 oval 'Famous Fighters' logo. The original rectangle 'Northern Lights' logo has been neatly blotted out with a yellow rectangle of the same size. The fact that the price is still 69 cents (as the original issue) means this issue is very early 1957 and predated the 'yellow' box art issue. Molded in gloss olive green and black. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$79   

First issue from 1959 with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork, FF logo and Parents' Magazine Seal on the lower right. Please note that this box exists in two versions; one with the PM seal at the extreme lower right and one with it an inch or so to the left. A nice kit of the dreaded 'Flying Razor' of WWI. The D-VIII had what it took to turn the tide in the air, but was introduced too late and in too few numbers to make a significant difference. Kit has never been started.
