Classic MAD Magazine Cover Remembers Those Great Aurora Monster Model Kits

This great 1964 cover of MAD Magazine remembers those great Universal Pictures monster model kits of the 1960's. Aurora issued only a few model kits in those days including The Wolfman, Dracula, The Mummy and Frankenstein's Monster. Aurora also issued the MOD SQUAD's "lead sled" Mercury woody wagon and a few other models such as torture instruments. But sadly, these models disappeared for many years after Aurora left the model market and concentrated on slot cars.

In more recent years, Polar Lights reissued a number of these old 1960's model kits. And at least one beautiful book on Aurora model kits has been published as well.
