It’s over a year since our last posting on this build. And to no amazement to some, there is zero traction. In fact, once the sponsorship year closed, we declined to offer Eaglemoss | Die-Cast Club any further extensions to the sponsorship campaign. And today the remnants of the build have been sold off, and we chalk this up as another learning experience with the scale model hobby.
Our team was seriously routing for the Eaglemoss | Die-Cast Club to succeed. Our opinions through the limited time with the build were genuinely positive with the model and parts list and overall built quality, and the passion to complete the project was there as it was from day one. The challenges with the build are more with the supply chain and in short, their inability to deliver – their lack of communication internally requires some serious rethinking. Again, this is our opinion based on our perspective throughout the build, though short and not complete. Can we say this was COVID induced, probably some, but their challenges started well before the pandemic was at full sail.
In short, for those on the fence about starting their own build our advice is to proceed with caution – not sure where the brand stands today on availability to deliver and starting and completing a build is timely and expensive if you make it full course. Adding any negative fuel in acquiring parts or not getting the required parts at all can be extremely frustrating, to say the least.

As always, HAPPY COLLECTING!
