With our Eaglemoss 1:8 scale James Bond Aston Martin DB5 model now finished, I wanted to add one more touch. A few months ago, I ordered a set of the Metal Badges and GB Stickers from Mike Lane. This mod consists of a set of metal photo-etched badges found on the Skyfall version of the DB5 as well as three different trunk stickers for the Goldfinger, Thunderball, and Skyfall versions.
I knew from the beginning of this build that I wanted the Goldfinger version, so I only needed to add one sticker to the trunk. It was as simple as peel-and-stick and I think it looks great! There are some replacement Superleggera badges for the hood as well, if needed. I can only hope that Mike can keep up with all of the demand for his great products!

Hi, Thank you for producing such a comprehensive instruction destination. I have had many issue with this build up, been able to work through most if not all with a little gentle persuasion. I am having a major issue with the build up of the bullet proof shield. after much and plenty of communication with Eaglemoss to swap out part i still cant get both sides of the outside shield to match up to the screw pegs of the underside of the truck lid. did you or anyone else that you communicate with have this issue? as it is right now i was only able to screw on side in, this obviously is an issue with the true functionality of the shield. please if you can offer me some suggestions or direction you may have offered with anyone that had a similar issue.
Do you have a picture of what you are having an issue with?
Fantastic video of the DB5 build.
I have just bought a complete kit although some screws are missing I am told.
Any chance you have any left over, or a job lot I can buy?
I do have all my leftover DB5 screws somewhere. I will look around.
