I recently contacted Eaglemoss to check on the status of my various builds and was told that Stage 91 of our Ghostbusters Ecto-1 build was out of stock. I had to reduce my monthly shipments from 8 to 4 issues just to receive Stages 87-90. A few days later, I received this email:
|I have been made aware of a production issue with part 91A with shipment 24, that is due to be dispatched very soon. The right hand door has been produced with the wing mirror attached.|
This is of course not representative to the actual model seen in the movie, where the right hand side wing mirror is missing from the door panel.
We are advising NOT to assemble part 91A at this stage, as we have taken steps to provide the correct screen-accurate piece at a later stage. This issue is specific to the first wave of customers who ordered in 2020 and will be corrected for orders in 2021 and beyond.
This will not affect the build of your model going forward and will be easy to revisit once supplied.
The corrected door panel will be provided in issue 107 which is included in shipment 28 and will be included at our expense.
Please accept my apologies and be assured, I will keep you updated on any further developments moving forward.

I don’t mind waiting until Stage 107 for the corrected door, but if the existing Stage 91 is unavailable, everything gets stalled out. Therefore, we are stuck in a holding pattern again.
UPDATE August 28, 2021: According to Eaglemoss, both Stage 91 and Stage 94 are now out of stock. The wait continues…
UPDATE September 2, 2021: I have received a shipment notification for stages 91-94. Go figure!
UPDATE September 7, 2021: Stages 91-94 in Issue 25 have arrived but it still contains the wrong door. I will post an update regarding this.

Wow, I can’t believe they emailed you about the delay. I, delayed again at issue 48. It’s been two months, no email and when I call…. It’s coming any day now.
The email only said to not build Issue 91 and wait until a new door was supplied in Issue 107. However, when I called Eaglemoss, they said 91 was out of stock anyway.
I just got a notice my issue 48 is shipping after almost 6 months
This is crazy. I have Been on delay for 2 months right now waiting on same parts.. let me know if you get any word.
Update.. just got email my parts issues 80-91 are being shipped today
Hope they come soon, i use the site while i build so i have the parts list. Idk what id do without it(besides waiting paper and flipping the pages loosing my place). Keep up the great work.
While I am not building Issue 25 (Stages 91-94) until the new Right Front Door shows up, I did make a post containing the parts lists for you.
I don’t know where else on your site to ask this question: In terms of other models, such as from IXO, or from Agora and Eaglemoss; do you plan on doing more builds?
I find your site very informative – especially with the modifications you do.
In terms of DELAYED!: Eaglemoss is now approaching 3 months late on their shipments of 7-10 for the DeLorean!
I have been talking to Agora about building the FDNY Tower Ladder 9 next. I am also interested in the Robocop and the Hogwarts Express train, but neither are available in the US yet. Partworks are not as popular in the US as in other parts of the world, so the selection is pretty thin. I would love to see someone do the Johhny 5 robot from Short Circuit!
You should try my country, the Netherlands…
Apart from the Delorean, the only partworks that ever was available here was a wooden boat.
And if you call or write the Dutch offices, they simply DENY the Ecto1, the Millennium Falcon, R2D2 or any other partworks exist! (or at least they claim they have NEVER heard of those things, even in the movie)
I look forward to see your FDNY build. That’s high on my list as I want to give to our local Fire Station. I hope Mike Lane makes some mods for it, in terms of tools, equipment, and such. That was the main thing that struck me – the storage cabinets are empty! How cool would it be to have a turnout jacket, hat and etc…
