Aurora 1967: The World’s Largest Collection of Scale Model Hobby Kits Catalogue

After entering the burgeoning hobby market in 1950, New York-based Aurora Plastics Corporation became one of the most prolific manufacturers of plastic scale model kits for decades.

This 44-page catalogue from 1967 showcased the diversity of the company’s toy lines, which included:

  • Military and civilian aircraft, ships, and tanks
  • Television and superhero action figures
  • 1/25 and 1/32 scale cars
  • Hollywood movie monsters

Our favourite “hidden gems” in the catalogue include: “Whoozis” on page 35 and Old Timers on page 31.
