Jesse James model kit

Jesse James


Aurora produced their plastic model kit devoted to outlaw Jesse James between 1966 and 1967.

This model kit shows Jesse James standing defiantly with his pistol in his right hand. He stands on a ground base which also contains a cactus, a snake, a rifle, and a stump holding a small cardboard placard that says 'Wanted: Jesse James.' It is molded in tan plastic.

The model is actually a reworking of a previous Aurora kit, US Marshal, but with a new hat and base, and (of course) the star removed from the figure's chest.

This kit was crafted by artist Bill Lemon. The box art was by Mort Kunstler.
