Through the 1950's to the late 1970's Aurora ruled the model world with not only their creations of airplanes but also the movie monsters. Through high demand of today's market of unassembled model kits the prices have skyrocketed. Because of companies like Mobeius and their attention to detail, we now have the chance to acquire exact reproductions of model kits from the 60's.
