Free Gift #3

If you signed up for the subscription-based version of the Eaglemoss 1:8 scale Back to the Future DeLorean partworks build-up, you would have received three FREE gifts along the way. The third and final gift is this huge Display Base for when the build is completed!

The Display Base consists of a mirrored surface (under a protective film I am told, I am waiting to this remove later) inside a wooden frame. The frame is finished with a matte lacquer paint and the corner seams are filled pretty well. At the front, there is a glossy faceplate with the Back to the Future logo in full color:

The Display Base is quite a bit larger (approximately 29″ x 15″ or 74 cm x 38 cm) than the finished model will be. From what I can tell, this is to hold the train tracks that are part of the subscription extension.

Unfortunately, many other builders have had problems with their display bases, such as arriving damaged/broken or not arriving at all. I wish Eaglemoss would take more time with quality control! The surface of mine does have a few small scratches in it, but I will not be displaying the car on this base, so I am not concerned. It will either be behind glass in a cabinet or stored safely in my full-size Plutonium Case.
