In a break from subscription-based builds, I thought I would give the DeAgostini 1:2 scale Star Wars R2-D2 build a shot as a FULL KIT. This means I should have received all of the parts in this initial shipment. First up is Issues 1-8 containing some bits for the dome and right leg components!
I just can’t wait for Eaglemoss any longer regarding the out-of-stock Issue 23 and the Back to the Future DeLorean manual transmission mounts. I bought the issue from another builder so I could move on. Therefore, Issues 23-27 including the rest of the engine, the exhaust system, and start on the radiator section are now complete!
During the filming of the Back to the Future, three main DeLoreans were used to represent the time machine. These were designated by the crew as the A, B, and C cars. The only car remaining today, the ‘A’ car, was restored and now lives in the Petersen Automotive Museum.
I recently visited the Petersen myself to see the car in person and brought my DSLR/Flash rig. More than an hour later, I left with over 350 photographs covering every inch of the car I could get to without touching it. I thought these pictures may help others who are looking for extra details, so I uploaded most of them to a Dropbox account to share with everyone who might be interested:
Welcome to my first Hachette Partwork build! This is the 1:2 scale Terminator T-800 and is only available in the UK right now. I currently have it forwarded over to me here in the US. We start out with Issues 1-2 that contain the Faceplate, Eyes, and Upper Jaw as well as the first parts of the Right Arm!
