The Aurora kit of the Moon Bus from the classic film 2001: A Space Odyssey is shown both open and closed. Issued only once, this kit is highly sought on the collector’s market. The model was painted with Railroad Colors bottle paints. The kit’s front window glass is inaccurate because it was not used on the movie miniature. The glass should be on the inside window frame in front of the cockpit instrument panel. The interior colors of the cabin are guesses because the film’s lighting was in a blue/green tint that distorted actual colors. The cockpit was painted from published color still publicity photos.
