This build session wraps up by starting to build the right rear wheel in Kit 30!
Throughout the subscription build of their 1:8 scale Eleanor Mustang partworks build-up, Eaglemoss offers some ‘Special Issues’ for purchase. These issues are automatically sent, and are billed in addition to the monthly subscription. If you do not wish to receive them, you must notify Eaglemoss in advance via phone at (800) 261-6898 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This first Special Issue is a 1:24 scale die-cast version of our Eleanor Mustang from Greenlight Collectibles.
I was charged $25.95 USD for it and it arrived in a few days. The rubber tires rotate, the doors open, and the detail is quite good.
Unfortunately, the trunk and hood do not open and there is no engine. In the model car world, this is typically called a ‘curbside’ style.
Ironically, this is not an item unique to our build as you can just buy it on Amazon, but it is still a nice gesture. I tend to have smaller scale models displayed with my large partwork cars, so this will make a nice addition to my collection!
