Doc Brown's DeLorean from "Back to the Future" (1985)
About the Design
Doc Brown's time machine (aka "OutaTime Car") was a classic early 1980s DeLorean sports car encrusted with all manner of electronic doohickeys Original equipment included a portable nuclear reactor and an onboard flux capacitor. In this "B"-version, which appeared at the end of the original "Back to the Future" and played a leading role in "Back to the Future - Part II," the original plutonium reactor was replaced with a "Mr. Fusion" power plant from the year 2015, along with a hover conversion that allowed the car to fly.
About the Kit
Originally produced by Aoshima of Japan, this kit was later repackaged by AMT/Ertl for distribution in the United States. The model contained a nifty slide mechanism tilted the wheels to allow the car to assume the "flying" position.
Although there was only one AMT/Ertl release of this kit, Aoshima re-released it several times along with "A" and "C" versions.
The model was built from the AMT/Ertl release.
