What a Vehicle, What a Build, 65 years late
" A most satisfying build, you can make sure the moving bits are working properly before the build is complete. As an owner of a Corvette ZR1 model, that was put into/onto the transport to corroborate LEGO's claim and it did, albeit a little tight on the lower deck. 'Driving' the cars onto the transporter is relatively easy, that said the Corvette appeared to have a tendency to roll forward when at ths front on the upper deck, this was cured by running one of the extra Safety Ropes/Chains, used on the upper deck of the vehicle to comply with H&S regulations, between the front 2 stantions, this will lay just above the bumper, and stop any forward movement. Excellently forward thinking by LEGO.
Being of an inquisitive nature, I had to see if the DB5 would also fit. Lower Deck - No, the roof fouled the underside of the upper deck, smaller wheels on the DB5 or a slightly bigger transporter needed; Upper Deck - yes, but only on the trailer. If on the main upper deck, it makes life extremely difficult to put on a 2nd car. Both the DB5 & the Corvette lock onto the luggs to prevent roll back. It would be nice to see a transporter that will take the Chiron and the 911 GT3 RS.
All in All, another LEGO gem. "

Not the best build I have completed
" The Aston Martin DB5 is perhaps the least satisfying model to build in our collection (which includes the Bugatti Chiron, the Porsche 911 GT3 & RSR, Ford Mustang, Ferrari F40 and Corvette ZR1).   Once completed, it is extremely fragile and not an item to be played with.  I agree with some of the comments I have read regarding the lights/machine guns, the bullet proof shield and lastly the ejector seat, which worked once, then required a partial rebuild to get it work again.
We have over 90 Lego items, not including Brickheads, which range from the 75105 and 75192 Millennium Falcons, thru the Saturn V & Hogwarts Castle down to a Hook Loader.
Can I recommend this model - Very pretty to look at, difficult to keep it in one piece during the build and more so when completed and moving it. "
