Made by Isaac. The Aston Martin DB5 is most famous for its appearances in the James Bond films. It had all the luxuries of its day-it even came with a phone! (I, sadly, couldn't include that particular detail :-) ) I wanted a certain challenge; an iconic car that has specific details and features that you must get right if you want it to look, well, right. I think I somewhat achieved these details with this 5-wide DB5 :D As Starscream Soundwave puts in the description to his DB5, "This is an incredibly difficult car to build, so apologies for not doing it particularly well." This was in incredibly difficult car to build, so I also apologize for not doing it particularly well, though I did use his grille technique. I think I did alright though, I only spent a day or so on it so I think there may be a 'V2' of this in my future (Maybe even with some James Bond gadgets!). Again, grille technique was originally done by Starscream Soundwave.
About this creation
A rally version, just for the heck of it:
See it on Flickr, along with some breakdown photos here
Seriously, this is a Very great DB5! The details in this scale are amazing, and the part usage is magnificent! And thank you for the comment on my 5-wide sedan, I appreaciate that! Some more 5-wides coming up!
Wow Isaac, these are two beautiful Aston Martin DB5's! You uses some really interesting techniques and they turned out very well. Like it very much :) I might to try out some of these techniques for a new 5 wide from me ;) Great work.
Nice work on this - the build is a lot more complex than my DB5! The way you did the wheel arches is a fantastic, I really like the way that looks. The rear is also very nice, and, surprisingly, the rally version doesn't look too bad either! Just one request - as you use my grill and bumper solution, could you perhaps give me credit for my details? I don't usually ask, but since you've used some ideas from it.. No problem if you don't! And again, great work on this :)
