The Aurora Monsters: The Model Craze That Gripped The World!
For those of you have never had the pleasure of owning your own Aurora Monster model, back in 1961, the Aurora Model Company acquired a license from Universal Studios to create an entire line of kits based on the famous Universal monsters with Frankenstein being the first. Not only did these kits become the company's most popular offering during the 1960's and 1970's, but they also helped usher in other kits based on comic book, television, and movie properties and have become highly valued with memorabilia collectors.
