Aurora Curtiss Hawk P-6E, 1/43, 116-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$32   

Great builder kit. The kit is dated 1958 and has the 'Famous Fighters' in the border of the oval sunburst logo. Kit features movable rudder, elevators and wing ailerons, cockpit with pilot, seat, instrument panel, gun sight and feet stirrups, auxiliary gas tank and rotating prop and wheels. Molded in gloss dark green and clear. The kit has never been started. Missing small clear windshield. Otherwise inventoried with all other other parts present including decals and instructions. NOTE: the box is heavily damaged and only 'fair+.' The decals have stains on the backing paper but the actual transfers are clear.

Aurora Nieuport 11, 1/48, 101-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair

$32   

Third issue with the original issue artwork still dated 1956; but actually this kit is from the early/mid 1960s. This is the final issue to retain the original Jim Cox artwork. In the first issue, there is a square Northern Lights logo in the lower left. In the second issue, it has been replaced with the first famous oval logo sunburst. In this issue, the post-'Famous Fighters' blue oval has been placed in the upper left, allowing us to the see the complete artwork. Molded in gloss dark olive green and black plastic. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE that the box is intact but has stains and damage, so it is graded 'fair' and is not collectible. The decals are intact but have stains on the backing paper - the actual transfers are clear. 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.

Aurora Bell AH-1G Huey Cobra - Assault Helicopter, 1/72, 501

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$69   

Still factory sealed. Big 'A' logo issue dated 1972. Likely the third issue of this kit.

These were significant improvements as the new molds were on par with current offerings. This Cobra kit is one of the improved new mold kits. Features full cockpit, pilot and copilot figures, rotating main and rear rotors and optional weapons load - miniguns or rocket pods.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Fair+

$185   

Rare 1966 hardbox issue of this very large, two feet long (1/87 scale) classic commercial whaler model. Well detailed for that time. This kit was one of a series of large-scale sailing ships made by Aurora to appeal to the serious ship modeler. Molded in correct dark wood, black, tan, ivory and white. Features billowing sails, metal anchor chains, running and standing rigging, molded ratlines and display stand. It has not been started. The parts that were factory sealed are all still factory sealed. Only the white sail parts were never factory sealed, and they have been inventoried complete. Includes all other parts, decals, flag sheet, metal chain, rigging thread and instructions. The Wanderer was built in Mattapoiset, MA in 1878 and was the last sailing whaleship to depart the US on a whaling voyage. She sailed from New Bedford on 24 August 1924 and was driven ashore on Cuttyhunk Island by a gale the next day and became a total loss. (from Joe Greenley)
