VOYAGE FLYING SUB AURORA KIT #02
This neat kit was first introduced in 1968 by the Aurora Model
Company. It was reissued in 1975-79 with NEW box art. This all
yellow plastic kit comes with interior, two figures, base, & decal.
Polar Lights will be reissuing this kit early next year 2002. Watch
for it in hobby stores near you. The design of the "flying sub" was
taken off a sting-ray. Producer Irwin Allen after seeing the draft
drawings of the flying sub, decided to turn the artwork upside down,
and that was the final decision on the flying sub. The new sub was
introduced in the second season of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
in 1966-67. As with the space pod on Lost in Space also added in
it's 3rd season. These two crafts proved to be quite interesting,
and added a lot of excitement and drama to the shows.
