Test or live?

The Mustang is nearly finished but I have both the Delorian and Jaguar on the go as well as the I-400 from Japan. I shouldn't really start any more until I've got a couple out of the way but this looks nice!

So many partworks, too little money!

It's not on Eaglemoss's front page, so I'm guessing another test. However, at £4.99/week and only 100 parts, I'm tempted......

@Mark

that's not quite right.

issue 1 £1.99
issue 2 £4.99
issue 3 onwards £8.99

100 weeks

total cost £888

not bad considering the DMC will cost £1157.7

Ah, thanks Nick, hadn't spotted that. Suddenly lost interest now........ it's too expensive for me.

Hello

At 1/8 scale, the Batmobile (ex Lincoln Futura) can't be 50 cm long !!
The Lincoln Futura was 5.76 meter long (18.90 ft), at 1/8 scale, that's 72 centimeter.

In all the blurb that comes with issue 1 there's a 'full size' picture of the completed model.
It states 71.4cm long...

I would love to go for this if its not a test run. I subscribed to the Deagostini 1/8th Austin Mini cooper and received no issues except a key ring to say thanks for subscribing!

A friend of mine has subscribed to this and has not received any issues so this must be a test run!

Is doing test runs even relevant anymore? Surely its a waste of money for the companies. A lot of people wouldn't even bother subcribing knowing its only a test run, so how accurate is it anyway for gauging interest.

Quite a lot of trail runs turned into fully fledged part works

R2D2, Millennium Falcon and the Lancaster all were trail runs - to name but a few

So pretty good business model really
