Back Story

The Aston Martin DB5 is one of those automobiles with a soul and I have always loved its body lines and classic appearance. The car rocketed to stardom when two 1965 models were used by 007 agent James Bond (Sean Connery) in the film ‘Goldfinger’.

This Eaglemoss 1:8 scale James Bond Aston Martin DB5 is a faithful recreation of that vehicle with all of the Q gadgets included. This partworks model was originally released back in 2012, but has only recently become available here in the US.

This is my fifth partworks and I hope you enjoy the process as much as I hope to.
