The model, which will be available from 26th December, is made of die-cast metal and high-quality ABS. It is packed with details and forms an extremely accurate representation of the original car, including working interior and exterior lights, the iconic gullwing doors and a careful replica of the time machine components on the back. To achieve this, Eaglemoss collaborated with Joe Walser, who restored the original time machine for Universal Pictures.
In the past, Eaglemoss has released a number of successful and distinctive collectors’ series, including the Aston Martin DB5 and Nissan GTR.
Ben Robinson, head of Eaglemoss’s Men’s Licensed projects, commented:
“Few films are as iconic and loved as Back to the Future, and it’s a real pleasure to have worked on the model which is a thing of beauty. Not only does our new partwork collection give long-time fans the chance to have their own time machine, it takes something you’ve loved and makes it real.”
“As with all of our products, an enormous amount of research went into the model and we owe a massive debt to our consultant Joe Walser who rebuilt the original car from the movie and knows more about it than anyone else alive. All-importantly the DeLorean model is remarkably simple to build. We are confident that this new collectors’ series will gives anyone who builds it an enormous amount of pleasure and give them something to be proud of.”

The DMC-12 DeLorean
The model is a scale replica of Doc Brown’s DeLorean time machine from the Back to the Future trilogy. It is 1:8 scale, and is principally constructed of die-cast metal. All Doc’s modifications have been carefully recreated from the nuclear reactor to the cables on the floor, and the model has a wealth of lights. Readers are even given the option to build the versions that appeared in the sequels.
