Ecto-1 Stages 91-94

It has been a long 2 year wait, but now that Fanhome has resumed our Ghostbusters Ecto-1 build, we have completed Stages 91-94. In these stages, we work on the Right Front Door adding the trim and window!

The reason I waited to build these parts was I needed the replacement 91A door exterior part (without the side mirror hole) which just arrived with my Stages 107-110. I was also able to continue with my Door Transfers Kit from Mike Lane!

First Agora 007 Car!

Today, Agora Models officially released their first vehicle partwork from the new 007 collection- the No Time To Die Aston Martin DB5!

UPDATE: I have decided to build this big-scale model over at my new site: https://my007collection.com!

“James Bond’s gadget laden Silver Birch DB5 is regarded by many as the most beautiful Aston Martin produced and the ultimate Bond car. Appearing in the action-packed pre-credit sequence of No Time To Die, the latest iteration of Bond’s DB5 included gadgets old and new – featured in this brand new 1:8 scale model kit.”

IMPORTANT: This is a brand new partwork design and has zero compatibility or relation to the Goldfinger DB5 formerly from Eaglemoss!

It is available for pre-order now at the following sites, and shipping is expected to begin in October 2023:

Q Gadgets!

“Our 1:8 scale Aston Martin DB5 includes all the gadgets we were treated to in the 25th Bond movie No Time To Die, including its changing number plates, first seen in Goldfinger in 1964, updated in this latest design with LED screens.

Other gadgets also include tyre slashers, bulletproof glass, a brace of M134 Miniguns that protrude from behind the headlights, mine dispenser with dropping minimines, full command control panel with slider smokescreen control, working ejector seat with button and roof markings.

Plus, of course, replicas of the distinctive side strakes that were used to eject shells from the Miniguns, chrome bumpers, and 12-inch crossbow wheels.

The bodywork reflects the extensive damage caused by SPECTRE’s shower of bullets, however, we will provide the option of a damaged or pristine version for you to choose the finished effect.”
