They were powered by three 1,500 horsepower Packard V-12 gasoline engines and fully crewed by 14 men and 2 officers. After reaching a downed aircraft, the pilots were brought aboard through a gate in the transom. In the event the flight crew was injured, the well in the stern leads directly into a sick bay with 12 litters. To ward off attackers, these vessels were equipped with two 20mm twin mount cannons and plenty of ammunition. They had radar and could operate in all weather conditions.

Aurora Silver Knight of Augsburg 1560 Valiant Warriors - Crown Issue, 1/8, K1-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good+

$165   

Very rare 2nd 'Crown' issue. This issue is dated 1956, but is from 1957 judging from the new 'Famous Fighters' oval logo and the fact that 'CROWN' is moved up to the top, just below Aurora. Inside, the kit is also correct for the second issue. The instructions still have the 1956 rectangular logo, but Aurora has removed copyright on them that said 'Crown Plastics, Inc Princeton, New Jersey'. Molded in a beautiful gloss silver and with a feather plume. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes instructions. In the mid 1950s, Crown Plastics advertised the release of a series of Knight models - some of the very first figure kits. However, before Crown entered production, Aurora marketed the line for Crown in 1956- the first issue of this kit (this is the second issue). The first issue had a copyright on the instructions as 'Crown Plastics, Inc Princeton, New Jersey'. These were the first Aurora Knights ever issued and Aurora gave them the kit numbers K1-98, K2-98 and K3-98. These were the very first Aurora figure kits. The knights sold well, and Aurora bought the three 'Knight' molds from Crown Plastics within the year. The first issue had the early Aurora 'Northern Lights' rectangular logo has the correct 'Crown Line' logo inside it.
