1960's 1/18 Scale Frankenstein Model Kits Are Back Again!

In the 1960's, many model collectors fondly remember those great old Aurora monster model kits. The series included Frankenstein, Dracula, the Wolfman and the Mummy. Well guess what, Revel Models has purchased these old molds and is now producing remakes of these old Aurora kits for 2009. These great old model kits have long been out of of production and could only be purchased as high priced items on Ebay and from model collectors, sometimes at around $100 each.These new 2009 version kits only retail for just $22.99. And EHobbies on the Internet is offering them for a great low price of just $17.79 each.

Back in the 1960's the Aurora line of movie monster kits were popular as were monster magazines such as FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine. But soon, after the 1960's, many movie monster products began to fade in popularity. After the 1960's, model cars also declined in popularity, and only sell a fraction of what they sell today. Likewise, the Aurora line of models which included many nonauto kit models such as the movie monster series began to wane.

It's great to see some old 1960's product like the old Aurora line of movie monster kits back again. Back from the model kit graveyard.
