    Batman, Robin and Dick Tracy Model Kits (Aurora, 1964, 1966, 1968). Most guys who grew up in the 1950s and 1960s share a common memory of building and painting Aurora model kits. Cars, planes, trucks...every model company had those. What made Aurora special were their legendary character kits. Like monsters? You could build Frankenstein, the Wolfman, Godzilla, and plenty more. How about cavemen and dinosaurs? Maybe "Prehistoric Scenes" was more your speed. But for most people reading this catalog, it's the comic and superhero kits we most fondly remember. Offered here are three original Aurora kits, each in their original box. The Batman kit has been partially built up and painted, but is complete to the best of our knowledge. The box shows normal corner wear, and the instruction sheet, which is included, is in excellent condition. The Robin kit is a real gem, still wrapped in its original cellophane. In excellent condition, this box could have come of the store shelf yesterday. Finally, the Dick Tracy kit is complete and unassembled, but many of the pieces have been separated from their trees. The instruction sheet and the box are in excellent condition, with just the slightest wear showing on the lower left edge. This is an excellent opportunity to pick up three landmark kits and start or expand an Aurora collection.
