      Dracula model kit by Aurora

Vintage Monster Magazine Collecting
Dracula model kit by Aurora In 1962 Aurora issued the second of their highly popular series of monster model kits, this one devoted to the classic vampire character Dracula. It was molded in black plastic and came in a box measuring 4"x13".

The model features the king of vampires in his suit and cape, gesturing at the viewer menacingly. He is standing on a base resembling rough ground with a small dead tree nearby, on which there is perched a bat (similar to Aurora's Batman model base). There is an extra bat included with the kit, to perch on Dracula's hand or shoulder or wherever the user likes.

This model was reissued in 1969 with extra glow-in-the-dark pieces (Dracula's head and hands) in a 12"x12" box (seen at right).
