  Aurora Model Kits

Aurora C-119 Flying Boxcar, 1/77, 393-249

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+++

$79   

1960s issue with oval logo. Close to 1/72 scale. Kit has many nice features: cargo doors open and close to show full interior - removable loading ramps - Field gun/parachute/sled cargo - Jeep/parachute/sled cargo - rotating props and full cockpit. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora Lockheed F-90 Fighter, 1/48, 33-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$159   

Rare 1/48 scale model of this 1950s "Penetration Fighter." Hardbox is dated 1958, but the logo tells us that this is a early/mid 1960s issue since there is no 'Famous Fighters' in the oval logo. The factory put a tiny '100' circle sticker over the '98' in the part number. This issue has the correct triangle two-piece clear base as well as full landing gear and rockets. Molded in silver and clear. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions. Decals and instructions are both 'excellent' with slight yellowing as the only real flaws. This is reissue of one of Aurora's first two plastic kits (F-90 and F9F) which were actually copies of the Hawk molds. The Mates brothers were initially very upset about Aurora's improper move and a few tense words were shared at wholesale toy shows. But as time passed, all was forgiven and it eventually became a joke. But Hawk began to secretly 'mark' their products so that future reproducers could be spotted.

Aurora Douglas M-2 Mailplane, 1/48, 111-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc

$85   

First issue dated 1957 with timeless Jo Kotula artwork. Molded in deep burgundy and black. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions. Please NOTE, the box displays better than the 'excellent' grade but is ranked as such because there is a .75" x .5" tape tear on one long side.

Aurora Curtiss SBC-3 Helldiver, 1/48, 117-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$54   

Dated 1961 but because of the non-Famous Fighters and no Northern Lights logo, this kit is from more around 1965. Features movable control surfaces, full cockpit, pilot and navigator and very good detail for that time. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts decals and instructions.

Aurora Sopwith Camel - Capt. Roy Brown or Major William Barker, 1/48, 751

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

$34   

Still factory sealed. 1976 issue with revised molds. Much better kit than previous releases. Features full rigging instructions, new easier wing assembly technique, pilot figure and decals for the two aircraft listed in the title.

Aurora Air Canada Douglas DC-8 Jetliner, 1/103, 390

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

$145   

Rare. Aurora Plastics of Canada, Ltd. issue from 1972. Nicely done, large, very near 1/100 scale early 'short' DC-8 with full landing gear detail. Molded in white and clear with the large black Aurora 'Triangle' base. The highlight of this kit is a very large and extensive Air Canada decal sheet featuring full white and red vertical stabilizer and rudder wraps, complete side striping and windows, cockpit windows (although the kit has clear cockpit windows), black glare panel, full side logos, doors, registration CF-TJA and more. Decals are in amazing "excellent++" condition. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions. Aurora Canada issued the DC-9, 747 and DC-8 with this colorful paint scheme.

Aurora Aero Commander 680, 1/81, 285

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$165   

Aurora of Canada issue dated 1964. Still the only plastic kit of this venerable corporate workhorse. The kit has never been started. The parts are still in the internal factory sealed bags and includes decals and instructions. The Aero Commander was a state-of-the-art twin engine light transport from the early 1960s. It was built by Aero Design and Engineering Co. of Bethany, Oklahoma. It was the first twin engine aircraft to be used by the President of the United States and served in this capacity in the early 1960s. This high performance 5 to 7 place was popular with business travelers and had a range of 1,050 miles and a ceiling of 22,000 feet. The Aero Commander led to the Jet Commander, which became the IAI 1121 through 1124 Westwind business jets. Aero Commanders can still be seen at some airports in excellent condition, but many are neglected as newer aircraft are in favor.

Aurora F-86D Sabre Jet, 1/48, 77-98

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG++

$59   

Hardbox is dated 1960. Note the 'Famous Fighters' oval logo which is hard-to-find on this box art. Furthermore, there is no Parents' Magazine seal, so this issue is likely from 1961 or 1962. This model is a modification of the original Brooklyn U-Ma-Kit molds, featuring landing gear, two wing drop tanks, 8 wing-mounted missiles, extended rocket tray, clear triangle display stand and decals for 'YF-578.' Molded in gloss silver and clear. The kit has never been started. It has been inventoried complete with all parts and includes decals and instructions.

Aurora Grumman F9F-6 Cougar - (F9F6), 1/82, 293-29

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$55   

Dated 1957 but likely from 1959 due to the 29 cent price extension, 'Famous Fighters' in the oval and lack of a price circle and Parents' Magazine seal. Never started. Inventoried 100% complete with all parts, decals and instructions.

Aurora United Boeing 747 Friendship Jumbo Jet, 1/156, 362-250

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Exc+

$59   

AURORA block letters logo hardbox issue dated 1970. Features big 15 inch wingspan, clear cockpit windshield, detailed 18 wheel landing gear, large display stand and full United decals. Molded in white, clear and with a large gray tripod stand. Decals are in rare 'excellent++' condition. Please note that the instructions are the older 1960s United 747 issue. Aurora was known for using up all old materials, so this is far from a surprise.

Aurora Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet Braniff International Air Lines, 1/156, 358

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Good

$48   

Colorful issue dated 1972 and featuring full color Braniff markings, big 15" wingspan, clear cockpit windshield, detailed 18 wheel landing gear and large display stand.

Aurora Douglas DC-8 Jetliner TCA Trans-Canada Air Lines and Air Canada, 1/103, 390-350

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed NM+

$179   

Very rare. Still factory sealed and in investment-grade 'near mint+' condition. Aurora Plastics of Canada, Ltd. issue from 1964. Nicely done, large, very near 1/100 scale kit with full landing gear detail. Molded in white and clear and with the classic large clear Aurora 'World Triangle' base. According to the box top, this kit comes with two sets of decals - a large sheet of classic TCA markings for CF-TJA 801 which includes all TCA and DC-8 logos, stripes, windows, registration and more. The other sheet very large and extensive Air Canada decal sheet featuring full white and red vertical stabilizer and rudder wraps, complete side striping and windows, cockpit windows (although the kit has clear cockpit windows), black glare panel, full side logos, doors and registration CF-TJA. Naturally I cannot confirm this as the kit is still factory sealed; that is simply what I see in opened issues I have had. Aurora Canada issued the DC-9, 747 and DC-8 with this colorful Air Canada paint scheme.

$119

Aurora Albatross D-3 (Albatros DIII), 1/48, 104-100

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc+

$45   

Still factory sealed but the seal has a split on both short sides. Box has a 1956 date on it, but this a 1960s issue hardbox. Most likely from 1963+ because of the simplified Aurora logo and $1 price extension on the part number.
