I called the number listed on the website and spoke with the folks at AURORA. They were just on the phone with Monogram and Revell trying to retrieve a mold. I asked if this was "the real deal" and if indeed they were coming back. He said "yes". NO joke! No trick! They are going to try and make it work! I told him I wished him all the success in the world! Thank GOD for just the chance these men are going to try and do this thing! Imagine having, once again, a REAL AURORA kit! Yeah, boy! Can't wait!:p T.U.C.

Sorry, i can't believe monogram would ever let go of any of their remaining original aurora molds from their inventory. I hate being so negative regarding this subject, and hope i am wrong but.... :confused:

They may be trying to get monogram to make a few kits for them using the original molds. That would be the best way to go, as opposed to spending $$$$for new tooling. I've heard that anyone can have kits made if they order something like 10,000 units. Of course getting monogram to locate the molds is the tricky part. Like looking for needles in haystacks from what I hear...Thats how Cinemodels did it, when they released their kits....Otto

I'll believe it's for real when I see REAL kits on REAL store shelves.
Revell isn't going to give any tooling back! Trust me on that one!

Dave should know!

Are we talking about Lapco here or Aurora?

I ain't the least bit religious, but if I were, I don't believe I'd be thanking The Almighty for the return of LAPCO.

You're right.. Hope requires us to risk and sometimes it's just easier to give in to cynicism or allow reality to wear us out...too bad. I will believe in AURORA when I see the kits, BUT, I like being able to dream and hope. T.U.C.

Not saying this is for real or anything, but i remember a while back when everyone was saying no one could make new molds for a kit and how it would cost a million dollars to start a new model company.boy was you guys wrong on that one.

Hoping it's ancient history and no one will mind me asking, that sounds too good to resist: what the heck was THAT about?!?
