Tribute To The Iconic Mustang Eleanor

This unique scale model of the 1967 Mustang is a tribute to the legendary car with the nickname ‘Eleanor’ known from the movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. The original movie was made in 1974, but most people probably think about the loose re-make from 2000 starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie in a group of car thieves who steals 50 cars within 72 hours.

It is the first officially licensed 1:8 scale build-up of the world’s most famous Mustang which makes it truly unique, a pleasure to build, and a future collector’s item.
