Aurora Sikorsky S-55 'Windmill' Helicopter, 1/45, 503-89

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: NM+

$385   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo. This was the only year with this logo, which was quickly replaced in 1957 with the famous oval 'Famous Fighters' version. Incredible 'near mint+' condition hardbox with no more wear than the kit would have upon leaving the shipping crate. This is a large 1/48 scale kit that was issued after Aurora purchased the molds from Helicopter for Industry. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions.

Aurora Convair F-102 Dart - (Delta Dagger), 1/121, 290-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Mint

$75   

1957 hardbox issue. The box is in mint condition with as new gloss and color. Please note that this is an earlier issue with 'Famous Fighters' in the oval border of the Aurora logo. Small scale kit with dramatic Jo Kotula box artwork. Nicely molded kit 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. Internal factory sealed bag or 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 SNJ Trainer, 1/48, 80-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

Still mint in the factory seal. Dated 1960. Very likely the 3rd issue of this kit because the box top oval logo does not have the 'Famous Fighters' in the border, making this the 1963+ issue.

Factory sealed. 1960s issue. This is part of the famous Aurora WWI series of 1/48 scale aircraft. The series began in 1956 and Aurora added new kits into the early 1960s. The line proved incredibly popular, so these kits were included in the 'mold upgrade' in the 1970s before Aurora went out of business.

Aurora Rockwell 1121 Jet Commander, 1/72, 85-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$119   

Factory sealed. 1968 issue hardbox. Nicely detailed kit features recessed panel lines, full interior with rear bulkhead, couch, chairs and console, cockpit with chairs, instrument panel, control yokes, forward bulkhead and clear windows. Includes optional position landing gear and colorful decals. The Jet Commander was the jet powered follow-on to the famous Aero Commander twin private aircraft. But shortly after 1121 delivery began in 1965, Rockwell bought Aero Commander. The 1121 was competition for the Rockwell Sabreliner business jet in the same class, so Rockwell sold the Jet commander to IAI. Initial releases under IAI were called the 1123. Improvements to the 1123 design lead to the IAI 1124 Westwind powered by 731 fan engines. Legend has it that these molds were lost and/or destroyed in a train wreck. Monogram bought Aurora's molds and was transporting them to the Monogram factory when the accident happened.
