Thread: My 1/8 Scale BTTF Delorean (WIP)

  1. #1

    My 1/8 Scale BTTF Delorean (WIP)

    I Just received my first 2 issues of my Back To The Future Delorean Time Machine. I've never done a subscription build before, but this model intrigues me. The best part about this build is that everything is pre-painted to specs and all that is required is the assembly of the pieces. I LOVE IT! Each of the issues takes only 10 - 15 minutes to assemble. There are decals and screws that come with the kit. This build is a nice diversion from my other projects which are very time consuming. So here goes.... enjoy!

    Well that's pretty cool and hadn't heard anything about this. I'm curious about how much it will cost to build the entire thing.. Says $13.85 per issue, oh looks like 130 issues total...

    Here's the link for anyone else interested.

    This whole concept is new to me. What is it? Is it like a high-end model kit, but instead of having all the parts in the box, you subscribe to a magazine and get a little blister pack of parts with each issue? So, you's need to subscribe for x number of years before all of the parts come to you?

    Yes, It's a very High end kit with high quality parts. Most are made from metal, with some plastic and rubber parts added. Everything is pre painted. It is a subscription build much like a magazine subscription. In this case you get 4 issues per month with a total of 130 issues for this particular kit. You can cancel at anytime and then pick up again right where you left off. In my case, this is affordable to me over the time period needed to receive all of the issues. It's very easy to put together and In my personal opinion is a lot of fun to build in this manor. But that is it in a nutshell.
    Thanks for your thoughts

    SEPTEMBER/OCTOBER Updates - 2018
    Hi Everyone! I didn't forget about you. I've been working my tail off at my secular job. A Lot of changes being made that interfere with my projects BIG TIme. Hopefully it will calm down a bit over the next few weeks.

    For my DeLorean build, I had to hold off on that for about a month because my ISSUE 10 had some missing parts. The different size fixing screws are all labeled with letters like DM which represent the screw size needed to mount some of the parts together or to the main frame of the car. Well, instead of sending me the screws labeled DM, I received to packets of AP screws which a smaller than the DM screws so I could not finish some of the build. I got on the phone with Eaglemoss right away and told them what the problem was and without question or charge they sent me another issue 10! This was awesome. I only needed the screws but they sent me a Whole new Issue. I couldn't believe it! No problems! Great people to work with. So if anyone needs a new Issue 10 minus the DM screws for whatever reason let me know.

    Anyway, instead of just the September update with issues 6 - 9, I am also adding Octobers update with Issues 10 - 14. Little by little the car is taking shape. I have 37 new pics of the parts and assembly of issues 6 -14 on the 1/8 Scale DeLorean Build page for this month! Check it out and I'll see you next month.
