This website is an attempt to document all of the differences in the various releases of the Invaders UFO plastic model kits that have been released though the years. It is the direct result of having seen MANY Invaders kits listed on eBay and represented as "classic" or "original" or "vintage 1966" when, in fact, they were not.

I remembered building one of these kits in the 60's, and I set about finding out exactly how many times the kit had been released, what the different boxes looked like, and exactly what was in each box. In all cases the information here was gathered from a previously sealed kit, unsealed by either me or someone I know. That way I could be sure that nothing had been added or removed from the box.

Having accumulated all of this information, I decided to make it available to all those out there who might find it useful. If you are reading this, perhaps you've landed here as the result of a search and have a question to which you may find the answer. Naturally, if you have any additional information to add, please let me know. You can reach me here - - Mail -

The Invaders UFO is, of course, based on the alien spacecraft from the TV show, "The Invaders", which debuted Jan. 10, 1967. Aurora Plastics released the first model kit of this spacecraft in 1968, and again in 1975. After Aurora's plastic model assets were sold to Monogram Models in May of 1977 the model was again released in 1979, 1996 (after the forgetable 1995 Invaders TV movie), and 2003. It was also released in about 1989-90 by Tsukuda of Japan (at least it said Tsukuda on the box). In all instances, the 1/72 scale model with interior and removeable top was produced from the same silvery gray plastic (with a few variations) and came with no decals.
