- Full Description
Hollywood movie monsters are enduring pop culture standards. Kids and adults around the world recognize Frankenstein, Dracula, the Wolf Man, and the Mummy. Although monsters are Aurora’s most famous products, the company created model kits of all varieties, including historic sailing ships, sports cars, moon rockets, military and commercial aircraft, TV stars, comic book heroes and heroines, wildlife scenes, knights, and much more. Over 500 color photographs plus complete price guides.
A comprehensive history and guide to Aurora models, now updated to include new companies continuing the Aurora tradition. Aurora executives, sculptors, artists, and engineers who created the models tell the story in their own words. Every model Aurora made is described in detail. Today, Polar Lights, Moebius, Atlantis, and Monarch continue the Aurora tradition. Executives from these companies explain how they have added to the list of revived Aurora models, with information on reissues and current collectors’ market values.
Very nicely illustrated with lots of extra features. Photographs includes the original model boxes, cool advertising, and completed and painted kits. Whether Batman was your kit of choice during the sixties show, or Wonder Woman, or the great Universal Monsters, or hot rods, the latest cars, planes and jets, even space ships, Aurora had a model for you.
I built my share of their models back in the sixties and like so many comics and film fans, had my Batman, my Wolfman, Frankenstein and Dracula kits with that great box art. And I built many of those cool cars, hot rods and even dragsters. They livened up my bedroom shelves, nestled amongst comics, record albums, my stereo and books!
