  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora SNJ Trainer, 1/48, 80-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$65   

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. This was a good kit for the time, featuring 'good' cockpit detail, pilot and student figures, rotating prop and US Navy decals. Molded in yellow and clear.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$49   

SALE!! Still factory sealed. The kit is dated 1958, but this is obviously a later issue from about 1963 as the Aurora logo does not say 'Famous Fighters' in the border and has no sunburst. The two side logos, however, do say 'Famous Fighters' on the 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.

Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Pleases NOTE that while the box top displays very well, there is a 1.5" closed tear on the top side panel. 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.

Aurora Cessna 310, 1/62, 283-50

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$79   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. 1963 issue from ex-Comet molds. Neatly molded with all recessed panel lines, rotating propellers, display stand and full pinstripe decals. The kit has never been started. NOTE: missing one tip tank half. The other three are present; you can use one as a master and cast one in resin (if you are good at that), or the kit can be built without the tip tanks, and 310s do exist without them (although it is unusual). Also missing one side clear window, which can be replaced with clear plastic stock as it is almost flat. Inventoried with all other parts present including decals and instructions. Aurora had started a line of inexpensive 29 cent kits in about 1957. The line was a success, and it was expanded. The line grew again when Aurora purchased the Comet molds, as most of Comet's line was very small scale kits, many of them civil aircraft like this one. It appears that Aurora was encouraged by the sale of the ex-Comet civil aircraft, as it expanded the line with it's own molds in the early 1960s.
