These are the zero cans for the right pontoon of the 1:8 scale Back to the Future Delorean. They replace the inaccurate stock zero cans, part 81F from issue 81 and they can be installed the same way as the stock parts, by using two AP screws on the wedge.
This design adresses a few issues with the stock part while adding the following:
- Correct 1:8 scale dimensions of the real parts
- Solved the erroneous pontoon angle, which results in the weird looking bottom part of the stock cans, by adding the wedge (missing pontoon part).
- Separate parts and not bound together like the stock part
- Last but not least: they now have the characteristic corners and feet and cut on the bottom that gives them their defining look.
There's a picture above showing the 3D parts from below. The sprue is indicated with green. Pay attention when removing the sprue not to remove the pins.
After priming all parts, paint the wegde black. Paint the base and the zero cans using Vallejo steel or Mr. Hobby SM08 Super Metallic.
First step is to glue the pins underneath the round feet of the Zero cans onto the base. Then glue the pins underneath the base onto the wedge.
Second, as the zero cans are bigger then the stock ones and there's just a little space left, attach the pontoon to the car frame first, then slowly insert the cans through the window in order not to damage them or the paint application. Then screw the wedge in place with two AP screws from below.
Accurate to the max and designed to perfectly fit the 1:8 scale Eaglemoss Back to the Future Delorean. Fully tested prior to release as you can see from the pictures. Available only in the highest resolution possible to not compromise the design.
