Penny for scale
Delorean front quarter panel. All metal.
Delorean frame with all the wheels attached
Rear engine cradle and wheel parts
Nice brushed stainless steel effect. Looks pretty accurate to me.
This is where the engine will eventually be mounted since the DMC is a rear engine auto
Rear suspension parts flex a bit thanks to the springs
Rear wheels also fold down for hover mode
One of the trays the parts are delivered in.
Mr. Fusion assembled
Mr. Fusion screws. Plan on covering these with white paint.
Mr. Fusion lid does open like in the film.
Delorean reactor parts. In real life this was made from a Plymouth hubcap.
This is the automatic transmission.
So this is technically the wrong transmission for the Delorean in BTTF
It still looks nice attached to the engine. Luckily, Eaglemoss sent the proper manual transmission to fix the error.
Some small engines parts attached
The details come together to create a convincing engine.
Added some light weathering to the engine. Really brings it to life.
A little weathering helps
Now it looks more like a used engine
Light coat of paint helps to make the individual parts stand out.
Installed in the frame. Added some rust to the frame.
A little rust weathering powder helps the frame parts match the engine
Engine and frame assembled
All the details Eaglemoss added to the kit starting to shine
The floorpans have been installed
Radiator and fans on the Delorean
The fan parts are pretty detailed
I added some paint on the fans to make them stand out
Rusty muffler installed.
Delorean exhaust system is in
More of the exhaust and cooling system installed
Radiator cooling lines attached
Radiator lines are easy to install and are a nice detail
Eaglemoss did a decent job rendering the radiator.
Weathered the muffler based on a photo of a real Delorean muffler
Hover mode with the engine in
The fold down wheels use tiny magnets.
Delorean seat is molded vinyl.
A foam insert gives it some cushion
So the final seats feel like real carseats
Time circuit dashparts in. Wiring isn’t as bad as it looks.
Eaglemoss interior looks pretty realistic.
I’ll add some light weathering and carpeting soon
Interior test fitted to the frame
Eaglemoss sent a replacement manual transmission
Manual transmission is as nice looking as the automatic
Manual transmission even has accurate transmission mounting tabs
The swap wasn’t too hard but new transmission needs weathering
New manual transmission

Delorean interior with new carpet
Interior has carpet (self-adhesive grey “velvet”)
Flux capacitor and wall installed.
Eaglemoss base with “back to the future” plaque. Base is also metal.
The mirrored base looks great. Leaving the protective film on the mirror until I’m finished building.
