OK all... I couldn't resist... I had to get this and its going to be another monster!  Check this out...

Eaglemoss Ecto-1 Build Ghostb10

Yes this is a real thing and I gotta tell ya... it's a gorgeous thing.  I know... I know... I haven't finished my Falcon yet, but I couldn't resist this beauty!  Not only is it 1:8th scale meaning that when complete it will be over 3 feet long... but... All the doors open, all the lights work, all the windows roll down with the handles, comes with all the proton packs, gurney, instruments inside, sound effects (including the siren), brake lights come on when you press the brake pedal and the steering wheel turns the wheels... I mean who wouldn't want this thing!

But like all models like this, they all haven't their flaws.  The first one I spotted was this... the License Plate.  For some reason they used a screen grab of the movie and didn't take into account that the plate itself was partially obscured by the chrome bumper... and they made the plate without the border going all the way around it.  So of course I had to fix that problem straight away with my new resin printer

I'm sure I'll find more as I get more parts in... but this is what I've got going on right now!  Lemme know what you think!

Another epic build started....waiting to see what bells and whistles you add here. I know there is no way you will just go with the kit alone. Already a new license plate and you haven't even started yet. Ha ha ha
