Delco Battery Sleeve

£25.00 ex VAT

MADE-TO-ORDER - TYPICALLY SHIPPED IN 2-3 WEEKS

  Designed for Issue 26 of the Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Eaglemoss Hero Collector.

Embossed and made from metal, this Delco battery sleeve is pre-painted and easy to fit, instantly transforming the standard battery that comes with the model.

Accurately matched to the classic design of the original Delco batteries used in 1959 Cadillacs, down to the smallest detail including raised lettering, textured sides and accurate fonts.

Each sleeve is high-quality and authentic to the original, pre-painted to give a rubber-look finish, lacquered and ready to fit.

The sleeve has a strong, permanent 3M self-adhesive backing that strengthens over time, giving a long-lasting secure fixing to your model.

This upgrade makes a big difference to the overall finish of the model compared to plain and plasticky look of the standard part. The battery will be visible in the engine bay once the model is complete, so it’s an important detail to get right.

Painting the yellow battery cell caps

To recreate how the original Delco batteries looked, I would recommend painting the silver caps yellow to accurately imitate the screw-in cell caps which were an iconic part of these vintage batteries. I would recommend using Tamiya Lemon Yellow’ for this, available here on Amazon, for example. Alternatively, any brightly coloured yellow should suffice.

What’s included:

  • 1 x Metal self-adhesive Delco battery sleeve
All other model parts and accessories shown in the photos outside of the ‘What’s included’ list above are not included and are shown purely for demonstration and application purposes.
