  Designed for Stage 80 (plus future door issues) of the Build the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 by Eaglemoss. View build planner

Available as either rub-on transfers featuring specialist transferable Pantone® inks, or as vinyl stickers, these easy-to-use kits replace and upgrade the ‘No-Ghost’ stickers provided with the model – correcting the scale and providing a higher quality and more authentic finish.

These kits include everything you need to replace the oversized stickers provided with the Eaglemoss Ecto-1 model. At the same time, they add an altogether higher quality finish and match the doors of your Ecto-1 perfectly to how they looked in the 1984 Ghostbusters movie.

Installation is easy, with positioning templates, a spudger tool for application and fully illustrated instructions provided to take you through each step. The whole process takes no more than a few minutes for each door.

Rub-on Transfer Installation Video:

The vinyl stickers are as easy as peel and stick, and the rub-on transfers (not to be confused with waterslides, yuk!), are a premium product with the unique ability to transfer self-adhesive Pantone® inks directly to the surface, looking as if the design has been printed directly onto the model part! Application of the rub-on transfers is a little more technical but gives a better finish compared to stickers.

What’s included:

Premium Rub-on Transfer Kit includes:

  • 4 x Premium, glossy ‘No-Ghost’ rub-on transfers (3 doors + 1 spare)
  • 1 x Positioning template sheet
  • 1 x 8-page fully illustrated step-by-step instruction booklet
  • 1 x Spudger tool
  • 3 x ‘Wet and Dry’ wipes – for cleaning the doors prior to installation

Vinyl Sticker Kit includes:

  • 4 x Glossy ‘No-Ghost’ vinyl stickers (3 doors + 1 spare)
  • 1 x Positioning template sheet
  • 1 x 8-page fully illustrated step-by-step instruction booklet
  • 3 x ‘Wet and Dry’ wipes – for cleaning the doors prior to installation

At scale it’s easy to overlook the finer details, but on a vehicle as iconic as the Ecto-1 it’s important to get them right.

The ‘No-Ghost’ logos are available in two styles, each accurately matching different versions of the Ecto-1 from the Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II movies where the logo varies slightly (see Logo styles – Traditional vs Sedgewick below for an explanation).

Logo styles – Traditional vs Sedgewick

There are two options of the ‘No-Ghost’ logo available (aka “the Mooglie”). There is no right or wrong here. Both versions make appearances on the original Ecto-1, be it in Ghostbusters, Ghostbusters II or in later restorations on the original vehicle – so here it comes down to personal choice and which Ectomobile you are aiming to replicate.

People often ask me which style I prefer, and for me it’s the Sedgewick. This is the style I’m using on my own Ecto-1 model. When the Sedgewick-style ‘No-Ghost’ logo appears in the original 1984 movie, it is the first time we see the Ghostbusters logo clearly on the Ecto-1. Below I explain the differences in more detail.

Traditional (1989 Ghostbusters II to present day)

This style of Ghostbusters logo is the one most of us all know and love, and also recognise the most.

Seen on the Ecto-1 at the start of Ghostbusters II and on later restorations of the vehicle, this is also the main logo used on all official Ghostbusters marketing materials and merchandise to the present day.

Sedgewick (1984 Ghostbusters)

Arguably the original Ghostbusters logo, this style was used on the Ecto-1 in the 1984 movie Ghostbusters. It is seen clearly for the first time when the Ecto-1 comes to a stop outside of the Sedgewick Hotel.

The Mooglie in this logo differs slightly, primarily in the hand detailing (left and right side). I have personally re-artworked this ‘No-Ghost’ logo to precisely match the logo style from this iconic scene.

Whilst the differences are subtle, this logo feels special (to myself at least), as it’s truly authentic to the original film – teleporting me straight back to the skin-tingling moment when the Ecto-1 screams out of the firehouse on its first call.

For anyone wishing to match their Ecto-1 model to the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie, this is the style for you.

Rub-on Transfers vs Vinyl Stickers – What's the difference?

If you’re not already familiar with my rub-on transfer sets, they use specialised Pantone® inks with a high-strength self-adhesive backing. When rubbed over with a pencil, the designs are transferred directly to the surface, looking as if they have been painted directly onto the model. No soaking, no residue, and no raised edges. Just a clean design transferred directly to your model.

Because of the specialised process, rub-on transfers are considerably more technical, time-consuming and expensive to produce compared to stickers, but the difference in price is reflected in the finish and print quality.

Depending on the model and application, they generally look much more realistic and impressive when applied, designed to look like they were originally printed on the model parts.

Rub-on transfers are easy to apply and have a much higher clarity print than stickers. They also have the advantage of not having any raised edges.

Whilst my vinyl sticker sets are of course still printed in high resolution and to a very high standard, if you’re looking for the ultimate upgrade for your model, rub-on transfers are the way to go!

Logo size, angling and positioning

The logos have been correctly scaled to exactly how they looked in the movie, and positioning templates are provided to allow you to easily and accurately place the logos in the correct positions.

If you’ve seen photos of the recently restored Ecto-1, you’ll notice that the logo on the rear cargo door is significantly larger than on the side doors. However, in the movie it is clear to see that the original Ecto-1 used a smaller logo on the rear – matching exactly that of the side doors.

After painstakingly measuring and scaling all the logos directly from numerous scenes in the movie and archival photos of the original Ecto-1, I have matched these logos to precisely how they looked on the car in the movie – rather than from photos of later restorations.

How the logos should be angled on the doors can also be confusing. On the restored vehicle, and in the Eaglemoss magazine, it states that the logos should be placed with the diagonal centre line at 45°. However, again it is clear in the movie that the original Ecto-1 had the logos applied relatively level, with the diagonal centre line closer to 30°. It’s also worth noting that this is the angle at which the official logo is used on all Ghostbusters marketing.

Again, I have matched the transfers in this kit exactly to how the logos looked in movie, at the correct angles and scale.

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.
