Andy Yanchus: Ray Meyers Aurora figures included John F. Kennedy, Dempsey vs. Firpo, the flag raisers at Iwo Jima, Doctor Dolittle, Captain America, Superboy and Tarzan. He also contributed to the Prehistoric Scenes series, with the Saber Tooth Tiger, Cave Bear and Tar Pit.
But monsters were some of his favorite subjects, and his greatest claim to fame, too, with models that included The Bride of Frankenstein, Godzilla and Ghidrah.
I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to work with Ray Meyers when I was Hobby Kit Project Manager at Aurora. There was always an air of excitement about the office when Ray was scheduled to deliver a new pattern. We were never disappointed and routinely got far more than we expected.
