PACK 01

 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.

Build


Radiator Grille

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 Aston Martin Badges (001-B) will be added to the model in Pack 57 and Pack 77. Put them aside in a safe place for now.

Bulletproof Screen

The Bulletproof Screen (001-C) will not be installed until Pack 60, so keep it in a safe place for now.

Thoughts


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!

  1. I finally got my DB5 too. I am going full model route, like the BTTF car. Sanding all mold seams and repainting parts. I am disappointed in how they produced the magazine, and build up. It seems very disjointed. Giving you the bulletproof screen, and other parts that will not be used until the end.

    1. Good to see you starting as well. I am not sure how much extra modding I will be doing to this car, but we will see. And it is just like Eaglemoss to give you parts early that you put aside for a year or more.
