NTTD DB5

This Agora Models 1:8 scale Aston Martin DB5 from ‘No Time To Die’ large-scale model can be purchased via a subscription at the Agora Models website. It is available to be shipped anywhere in the world and can be completed in either 12 or 24 months:

Agora US/Worldwide | Agora UK | Agora France | Agora Germany | Agora Japan

The build consists of 100 individual ‘stages’. Agora will deliver twelve shipments containing 6-9 stages that each contain a few parts of the model. For each shipment, a digital version of the instructions will be available at the Agora Download Center. These shipments are sent monthly or bi-monthly depending on if you chose the 12-month or 24-month subscription option. The subscription is perpetual and automatically charges your credit card every month.  If necessary, however, the subscription can be suspended or cancelled at any time by calling or emailing the company.

I created this site to share my own build progress and hopefully offer hints and tips I discovered along the way. It is not intended to be a step-by-step replacement for the instructions, so please read the magazines carefully! Lastly, most of the parts appear to be very detailed, so I may only be modifying (modding) a few things along the way.

NOTE: This is a brand new partwork design and has zero compatibility or relation to the Goldfinger DB5 formerly from Eaglemoss!

Below are links to the articles for my build of this DB5:
