Last month, we broke the news of a Ghostbusters Ecto-1 model kit that would be released as part of Fascinations’ ever-growing DIY Metal Earth line. At the time of the reveal, outside of the photos, there was little to go on, but today, we have not only been given an official reveal, but the scaled-down Cadillac is now available for purchase.
If you’re unfamiliar with Fascinations’ Metal Earth line, the kits are comprised of high-quality steel sheets containing individually cut parts, including easy-to-follow instructions, and one of the most significant selling points is that neither glue nor solder is required.
Looking at Ectomobile’s details, the 126 pieces are spread out between 3 sheets and will require a lot of patience even for returning Metal Earth builders, given an 8/10 difficulty rating.
Given the construction style, the detail is pretty incredible, especially with the roof rack being accurately recreated, consisting of lightbars, side tanks, and a ghost sniffer alongside the attached ladder and side tubing.
This one should be an easy pick-up for most Ghostbusters fans and film car enthusiasts, as despite being a fully licensed product of both Columbia Pictures and General Motors, Fascinations were able to keep the cost down, priced at only $32.95, available here.
