HANDMADE TO ORDERTYPICALLY MADE AND SHIPPED WITHIN 2-6 WEEKS

  Designed for Stage 1 of the Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Eaglemoss. View build planner

Made from metal, these replacement hood vents for the Hero Collector Ghostbusters Ecto-1 are incredibly accurate, highly detailed scale replicas of the originals.

Redesigned to add missing detail whilst also removing the unsightly screw heads visible on the original Eaglemoss parts.

At only 0.3mm thick, each vent is super low-profile matching that of the real vents on the Ecto-1.

The vents are self-adhesive and finished to a high level of detail. You’ll even notice that the rivet locations are different on each vent, positioned in the exact same locations of the originals.

You can also see the space beneath each grille, unlike the solid plastic vents supplied with the model.

Features include:

  • Made from metal – More realistic, accurate and authentic to the original Ecto-1
  • Real grilles – Each grille/louvre is hollowed out just like real vents!
  • No screws – No more ugly screws and no risk of snapped screw heads when fitting (a common problem with the Eaglemoss screws)
  • Self-adhesive – Ready to install, each vent has a high quality permanent 3M self-adhesive backing to last the test of time
  • Added rivets – Unique to each vent and matching the exact positions on the real car
  • Correct number of louvres/grilles – Often overlooked, there should in fact be 18 louvres/grills on each vent rather than the 17 on the Eaglemoss parts
  • Added halfway split line – The hood vents on the original Ecto-1 car were actually made up of four smaller vents rather than two long ones – the added split line is designed to help give this impression
  • Lower profile – At only 0.3mm thick, these vents are significantly thinner than the standard Eaglemoss parts, making them more accurate and realistic

What’s included:

  • 2 x Self-adhesive metal hood vents (Left and Right)
  • 1 x Set of hole cover stickers (to mask the holes beneath the vents)
  • 1 x Illustrated set of instructions
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.

    Received my shipment today and installed these hood replacement parts. Needless to say I am very happy, they look so much better than the original parts. Love the care taken in the packaging also.

  2. Mark W Bolden (verified owner)

    These are truly awesome. They work perfectly and were no problem to mount. Every product from Mike is professionally made and packaged. I'm always impressed.
    One suggestion to those using these. Tape off an area underneath the vent - slightly smaller - paint it black, flat, gloss whatever you've got. Then mount these vents. They will really pop - it brings out the slots in the vents versus the white hood as a background . Wyatt

    Much better than the stock vents.

    I am extremely happy with all of the mods I have ordered, every single one has been so well thought out and the attention to even the smallest detail is incredible, I can’t wait to see what comes next

    Excellent mod. Fantastic quality. Thanks.

  6. Miklós Hibert (verified owner)

    Great detail, easy to apply, take the hood to another level.
    Highly recommend, I'll be waiting for the next mod!
    Thank you Mike!

    Another winner for Mike! I have already bought several mods for the DeLorean and have been very happy with those. The hood vents do not disappoint. They look so much better then the ones supplied by Eaglemoss and are very easy to apply. Thanks Mike!

    Bought these to replace those horrible screws that were given with the original build great value and adds alot more detail to the model. Keep up the work and waiting for the next mods.

  9. P Screaton (verified owner)

    Fantastic mod, really makes the hood pop, really looking forward to the next lot of mods.

    top rate parts will be buying more mods as they appear

  11. Leonard Pieton

    This mod really took the hood to another level! There’s small areas where the illusion that they shrunk the actual ecto-1 is broken. And this fixes one of the most obvious signs. Just amazing, can’t recommend it more!

  12. Colin barker (verified owner)

    When I received these hood vents the first thing that struck me was how well packaged they were. Upon opening them I was so impressed with the detail Of the vents and the ease of fitting the mods.
    Would definitely recommend these as they really are an improvement on the original supplied vents

  13. Paul woodworth (verified owner)

    The difference is night and day! I’m so glad to have those god awful screws off the hood. I’ll be waiting for the next mod!

  14. Rich Sermitis

    Mine just arrived. Great detail. As the vents are front and center this mod is a mandatory. Eagle moss really missed on this one. The EM version with those god-awful screws......EM could have done these on theirs for no increase in cost, my guess. Come on Eaglemoss, make the change now!
