  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora USS Guadalcanal Helicopter Carrier, 1/600, 718-200

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$245   

Rare. Full hull model. 1966 dated hardbox. Features detailed flight deck, complete interior hanger deck, movable hanger deck doors, 6 Sea Knight and 6 Sea King helicopters, deck guns, display stand and full color decals and flag. This was one of Aurora's later kits with improved mold quality. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts present and rare 'mint' condition decals & instructions.

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

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc++

$109   

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.

Aurora Grumman F9F Panther Jet, 1/49, 22-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$69   

Excellent condition box and kit dated 1960, but from a later date than that due to the logo variation. Molded in a brilliant gloss deep blue and clear with the clear triangle 'World' stand. These molds are from one of Aurora's first two kits - the F9F and F-90. Aurora simply went out and purchased the early Hawk F9F and F-90 kits and copied them almost exactly. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Instructions and decals are in exceptional NM condition.

Aurora Scotch Lad, 1/8, 419-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+

$75   

Rare kit dated 1957. Part of the 'Guys and Gals Of All Nations,' these very well detailed kits simply did not sell well. Aurora quickly dropped them from the line, which made them instant collector's items. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes instructions.

Aurora Scotch Lassie, 1/8, 420-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$75   

Rare kit dated 1957. Part of the 'Guys and Gals Of All Nations,' these very well detailed kits simply did not sell well. Aurora quickly dropped them from the line, which made them instant collector's items. The kit has never been started. The parts are either inventoried 100% complete or still in the internal factory sealed bag. Includes instructions.

Aurora C-119G Flying Boxcar, 1/77, 393-250

Aurora Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, 1/125, 143-130

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$79

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$85   

Rare 1957-1962 issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora sunburst oval logo and there is NO '$2.59' price circle at the upper right. I believe the 4rd issue as the 3rd one has the price circle. The box has four solid corners, good color but significant general wear and tear as shown. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with a big clear 'triangle-based' Aurora stand. NOTE: the tail gunner's clear canopy has had glue on it at one point. It was not installed, but you can see the glue. One engine front has been painted black. There is no other painting or glue on the kit and zero assembly. NOTE: missing one part, the small cylindrical 'upright' (shock) for the tail skid. Easily made from pulled sprue or stock plastic. Inventoried with all other parts, decals and instructions present. NOTE: the decals are 'excellent' except for a small tear on one 'star and bar.' Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.

Aurora Boeing B-29 Superfortress, 1/76, 372-259

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$125   

Rare 1957-1962 issue retaining the same artwork as the 1956 issue. This kit has arguably the most dramatic and fanciful B-29 composition from the 'Golden Era' of modeling. Note the square 'Northern Lights' logo has been replaced with the 'Famous Fighters' Aurora sunburst oval logo and there is a '$2.59' price circle at the upper right. I believe the 3rd issue. The box is in 'very good' condition with nice color and gloss. There are no split corner and no repairs. It does have general even wear. Molded in gloss silver and clear, with a big clear 'triangle-based' Aurora stand. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes 'near mint' condition decals and instructions. Responding to market information that boys wanted larger kits, Aurora introduced the B-26 followed by the B-29 and B-25, all of which sold well for many years- almost right up until the end.

Aurora Avro CF-105 Arrow, 1/80, 124-129

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good++

$95   

1958 hardbox issue with fantastic Jo Kotula artwork. For the time, this was a very nice kit with good detail. Molded in white and clear with the Aurora 'Triangle World' transparent base. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora Old Timers 1911 Buick Bug, 1/16, 574-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good-

$59   

NOTE: builder only, please read carefully. 1963 first issue of Aurora's 'Super Detailed Museum Model with Plated Parts.' Done in a big 1/16 scale, this kit and the other 'Old Timers' in the series represented a significant leap forward in quality for Aurora. The kit features full engine, transaxle and driveline detail. It builds up a rolling chassis like the real car, and includes full exhaust and a detailed interior. Molded in gloss dark green, gloss ivory and with plated parts and real rubber tires. Never started. NOTE: Missing one front spring and one clear lens. Lens has no pattern, so it will be easy to reproduce. Front spring can be cast in resin using the present side as master. Otherwise inventoried with all other parts and instructions. There are some tire 'burn marks' but nothing that cannot be fixed. Aurora was renowned for turning a profit and for keeping expenses down. In researching new kit subjects, they came upon a forgotten jewel - the Hudson Miniatures line of 1/16 scale wooden kits. Hudson had discontinued this line due to lack of sales of wooden kits. But the Hudson models were second to none in quality, research and documentation. Aurora was quick to realize this and used the research and layout from these kits to create the subjects for this 'Old Timers' series. It is fortunate for us that they did, because in most cases this is the only injection molded kit of these rare and classic early automobiles.

Aurora French Nieuport II, 1/48, 101-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$55   

First issue from 1956 with Northern Lights logo and 69 cent price extension on the part number. This 'NL' Rectangular logo was used for this one year only - in 1957 the oval 'Famous Fighters' Sunburst logo was launched. Classic early Jim Cox artwork. 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.

Aurora Northrop P-61 Black Widow, 1/48, 392-198

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Mint

$179   

Still mint in the factory seal. Hardbox issue dated 1960 - however, this issue lacks the 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo boarder and has a 198 price extension, so it likely from 1961. Large 1/48 scale kit. This has to be some of Jo Kotula most fantastic artwork - the P-61 patrols over a South Pacific island base at night, destroying an intruder (or defender?).

Aurora Focke-Wulf Fw-190, 1/48, 30-69

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc++

$179   

Very rare hardbox issue dated 1959. Please note that this one has the 'Famous Fighters' oval logo and the Parents' Magazine seal at the upper right. The box is in exceptional condition. The color and gloss is like new. All four corners are solid and original and there is no edge wear, fading, water stains, tape or price tags on the box. The only flaws are a tiny bit of corner wear, light marks from the factory sealing tape and a tiny (7 x 3 millimters) tear from that tape on one long side. Molded in the correct gloss black and clear and includes the correct Aurora 'Triangle World' two piece clear stand. Instructions have the same logo as the box and also have the Parents' seal. The decals are in 'excellent+' condition. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Boeing F4B-4 - (F4B4), 1/48, 122-79

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG+++

$65   

1958 issue with fantastic Jo Kotula boxart. This is the Parents' Magazine issue with the seal located in the lower right. Classic 1930s Navy Biplane Fighter that is still famous for their colorful paint jobs at that that time. Cowl, tail and trim color would vary with the Aircraft Carrier (Ranger, Lexington or Saratoga) that the group was based on and the aircraft's position in the flight formation. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.
