Aurora Creature “From the Black Lagoon”

actually the Monogram knock off

Scoooore!!!!!

Just when I thought I was safe, it pulls me back in again[armor builds]. The right scale, the right subjects, the right price, more or less, from the net. The Tarkus line continues.

1/600 Aurora USS Enterprise (CV-6)

My Memorial Day build commemorating all those that have served our country this year is an appropriate one – the legendary CV-6, U.S.S. Enterprise. Winner of 20 Battle Stars, a Presidential Unit Citation and a Navy Unit Commendation, the Enterprise […]

Atlantis (ex-Aurora) “Classic Plastic” TWA DC-9, 72nd scale

This is one that I just completed; it’s the Atlantis Models DC-9-15 (or thereabouts). This kit appears to be a re-issue of an ancient kit, which I believe was originally Aurora. In any event, the kit is very basic, and […]

Last winter, I dug my one and only World War One build out of the cabinet, and thought, what the heck, take some pics of the old girl. It has never been photographed before, and it looks pretty rough in […]

Seaview

This is an earlier refurb. of Aurora’s Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea’s Seaview I changed the nose portals window panes from the original eight.

Orion III Space Shuttle refurb.

This is Aurora’s space clipper Orion from 2001 Space Odyssey. it’s a1975 issue. Another one I couldn’t get rid of. I was originally going to refurb it sitting on top of a Saturn booster, that’s how the story in the […]
