During the subscription build of this Eaglemoss 1:8 scale James Bond Aston Martin DB5 partwork model, I did not expect any special issues to be offered. However, even after I finished this build, I was recently emailed that I was eligible to receive this third Special Issue. It consists of a very nice hardcover book titled James Bond’s DB5. Unfortunately, these Special Issues are not free, and I was automatically charged $47.95 for this item.
This deluxe 264-page coffee-table book measures 11”x12 ½” and is packed with full-page, high-quality photographs, including multiple shots illustrating the DB5’s appearance in No Time to Die. It was published in September 2021, so that may be why it arrived after my subscription concluded.
|Foreword by Daniel Craig
When 007 first took control of the DB5 in Goldfinger it redefined the action movie forever, setting a standard for everything that came afterwards. Over the decades that have followed, Bond’s association with Aston Martin has only grown stronger. Bond and the DB5 are the perfect match: understated, stylish and powerful. This book is the official story of their relationship, from its beginning in 1963, when the DB5 was brand new, to the 25th Bond film No Time To Die, in which the DB5 once again takes center stage. The book draws on EON’s and Aston Martin’s official archives to present the inside story of the DB5, and includes original production artwork, film storyboards and exclusive photography.
While this was unexpected, it is a beautiful book and makes a great addition to my bookcase! If you are not interested in these Special Issues, you need to contact US Eaglemoss Customer Service team at 1-800-261-6898 or at customerservice@eaglemoss.
