Aurora Models I have known & loved
Here's a brief slide show of a series of monster models that I have put out by Aurora in the mid 1960's. These were the very first monster models put out by anyone and I still think they were the best. You can still pick up reproductions of these kits (at five times the original price!!!) on eBay and elsewhere. Moebius puts out an up dated version of each that is about 1 1/2 times larger that are very nice. I've purchased a few but haven't buiit them yet.
Anyway, these are nice plastic kits that are easy to build and paint, a great starting out combination for the beginner who wants to try his or her hand at the hobby.
