Return to the BUILD
“The first components of your DB5 are the radiator grille, bonnet and boot badges, and bulletproof screen. In this section discover how they fit into the model and learn about the real car parts.”
This is where our Eaglemoss 1:8 scale James Bond Aston Martin DB5 partwork build-up all begins! We have two part packs in this magazine issue, but I am going to create pages for each pack individually. Unfortunately, this pack has no build steps at all (we just store these parts for later). The build should get more interesting as time goes on.
If you haven’t seen it yet, I recommend reading through my Getting Started page first.
This image includes the parts for the entire issue. However, the parts included with this pack are:
- Radiator Grille
- Aston Martin Badges
- Bulletproof Screen
Materials: Here I will describe the materials the supplied parts in each pack are made out of. All of the screws are metal, so I will not mention them. For instance, in this pack, only the Bulletproof Screen is metal – the other parts are plastic.

Free Gift #1 – Poster
A 3-page foldout with full size color images of the model and the final dimensions:
- 22.5″ (57.1cm) Length
- 7.7″ (19.75cm) Width
- 18.7 lbs (8.5kg) Weight
The Radiator Grille (001-A) has three pins which will be pressed into posts of the body later on. Put this part aside in a safe place for now.
Aston Martin Badges
The Bulletproof Screen (001-C) will not be installed until Pack 60, so keep it in a safe place for now.
This completes our first pack! There was nothing to build at all, just parts to store until later. The Bulletproof Screen is metal, but the rest is plastic. I am looking forward to the rest of this build, it is so classy!
