Welcome to the Aurora Model Catalog Pages.
From here you can navigate to a thumbnails page featuring the cover images of
Aurora Catalogs published from the 1950's thru the 70's. From cover to cover every
Aurora Models catalog is available from 1959 to 1977 for your viewing pleasure. We
have a few from the 1950's and are working on completeing the rest from 1950 to 1959.
Just click on the pile of catalogs above and when you arrive at the thumbnails page
just select the catalog you wish to view. You can navigate the pages one at a time
or by the click-able Table of Contents we have created for you.
I have written
comments for each catalog with interesting facts and noting changes that took place from
year to year. A wealth of Aurora Hobby information at a mouse click with over 20
annual catalogs plus several more specialty catalogs and supplements totaling over
30 different unique catalogs. Find out for your self when your favorite Aurora hobby
kit first appeared and when it was later modified or discontinued. WWI & WWII
planes, battleships,carriers, tanks, sailing ships, sports cars, monsters, superheroes,
knights, wildlife, electronic kits, etc. Most every plastic assembly kit Aurora ever
produced is in this vast collection of Aurora lierature.
Be sure to check out
the early 1970's 40 page European catalog at the bottom of the thumbnails page. It
features some kits and variations never produced in the USA. Also note the special
dealers specialty order catalogs towards the bottom. Some really cool stuff
We welcome you to let
us know what you think about or to offer any suggestions that may improve the pages.
And please, if you have any catalog in your collection that you do not see here and
wish to share it with everyone, just drop me an email. We'll list you in the recognition
credits for providing us with the images as we have others that have assisted the
cause. Currently we are searching for more 1950's catalogs, brochures and any
specialty/dealer supplements through 1977. Also any foreign issues from
Europe, Canada, etc.
Due to site space
constraints we must apologize that all fine print on the pages may not be readable.
We may offer in the future high resolution scans of the collection on cd's. Let us
know if interested.
