I haven’t seen any Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing parts for about five months. But, in the last 11 days, I have seen two shipping notifications for more packs. Unfortunately, it looks like they are still missing Phases 52-59 and 61 as they skipped them and shipped Phases 51, 60, and 62-67. Seems like they are not able to get their hands on the main body parts…
You have 24 hours to steal 50 cars, but the last one means the most. This is ELEANOR. The 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback that was customized for the 2000 release of Gone in Sixty Seconds. I signed up for this 1:8 scale Mustang Eleanor by Eaglemoss back in April 2020 and we are being told to expect shipments to start February 2021! I create a new My Eleanor Build.com site to capture all of the fun!
With the recent formal release announcement of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D by Eaglemoss, I have already subscribed. This is by far my most favorite ship in the Star Trek universe. The new build site will be at My Enterprise D.com and, while there is not much there right now, there will be soon!
With the Back to the Future DeLorean itself now complete, what do we do now? We start on the 29 extension issues!
Still, I thought I might share some pictures of the ‘current’ finished product from a few different angles:
Our Mercedes 300 SL build is on hold again, awaiting Phases 51 and on.
Eaglemoss does not have any of the free gift Ghostbuster Ecto-1 hats to ship, so they are holding up our build.
Recently, it was announced that a new US company, Agora Models, would start distributing their own version of the Hachette Terminator T-800. However, I am going to stay with Hachette for now!
Unfortunately, we are on hold with the Mercedes 300 SL Gullwing build. Stock availability problems means this model is going to have to wait until next June.
It looks like another partwork delay is upon us as the next issue of my Eaglemoss James Bond DB5 is out of stock with no ETA.
Apparently, Eaglemoss is having a heck of a time getting their hands on the out of stock Issue 74 for the Back to the Future DeLorean, so the entire build is on hold!
