As this partwork model is an Eaglemoss/Hero Collector/Die-Cast Club product, I want to inform my visitors about the recent disturbances and the possible future of Eaglemoss and these products.
It took us over well over two years, but the end of our Eaglemoss 1:8 scale Back to the Future DeLorean partwork build has arrived! While the journey was frustrating at times, overall it was an very enjoyable experience. I especially loved modifying it to be my own unique creation.
As with most of my partwork models, there were some recurring delays in receiving the parts. I even had to go so far as to buy issues from other builders and Amazon Japan as I was not receiving anything from Eaglemoss and did not feel like waiting. To be fair, all of the expected shipments did eventually arrive over the course of 25 months so I have a pile of duplicate issues I will make available to others soon.
I modified this build more than any other I have done because I wanted to replicate the original ‘A’ car as closely as I could. Others have gone even farther, but I think my DeLorean turned out great and I love it!
The total cost of this build, including all of the mods, was well over $2000 USD. Some may find that quite high, but when you consider the final product including the ability to display your DeLorean in any of the three ‘film modes’, I feel you get a lot for the money.
This DeLorean was my first partwork build and I am glad I took the time to get all the way to the end. It was a heck of a learning experience and I collected a vast array of knowledge and tools that have helped all of my future builds.
Even with the ups and downs, the delayed issues, and some sub-standard parts, I am extremely proud to own this model. It is by far the crown jewel of my collection!
