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 second Special Issue. It consists of a very nice hardcover coffee table book titled 007 50 Greatest Bond Cars.
Unfortunately, these Special Issues are not free, and I was automatically charged $31.85 for this book. It was offered at $18.95, but Eaglemoss accidentally charged me for shipping and handling. I did receive an another email after it arrived that said this extra charge was in error and I did receive a refund.
Each of the fifty cars depicted in the book have their own 2-page spread detailing the usage, Q gadgets, and other information. For example, here are the pages for our Aston Martin DB5 from Goldfinger:
Another one of my Bond favorites is the Aston Martin DBS from Casino Royale:
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.

I am looking for a few issues (Aston Martin 1:8).
Is there still a place/ shop where I can order them?
There is no shop I know of that sells individual issues. Unfortunately, your best bet is eBay and the high prices people are charging for them.
