Back in the early days of model kits, especially when plastic models were just coming around to being extremely popular, almost any subject was a possible candidate for a model. No matter how unusual.

Aurora and Lindberg probably did this the most. But other model companies did too at times. It was all about risk, and the competition was heating up as to which model company could get the sale at the hobby store or dime store counter.

It wasn't easy to figure out what kind of models kids and hobbyists wanted, so all you could do was make a wide variety of different kits, and hope something would stick. You just never knew when a particular kind of model series would take off.

Auroroa did a lot of TV and movie Science Fiction subjects. Spaceships of all kinds. But they also made various car models, such as a hot rod from the Archies comic book series, to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Aurora did figures of famous Boxers, JF Kennedy, and Alfred E Newman. They did obscure aircraft, several ships, and wacky models of all kinds. They ventured into super heros with Batman and Superman, the Lone Ranger and Tonto.

Aifix made models of birds, figures like Anne Boyleyn and Oliver Cromwell, even railroad cars.

Hawk models had the Weird-Ohs, but Lindberg, Monogram, and even Revell and AMT ventured into wacky figures. Kits that would never be tooled up in todays world.

So embrace the unusual model kits! They are still fun to build, and you neer know what interesting kit will show up.

Oddball model kits that don't always fit within a certain category. But are interesting all the same.
