The Ecto-1 power mod is here and a must-have item for this model, especially if you intend to add all of our mods, or your own.
As with a lot of these models, the power switch on the car normally located near the battery housing is cheap and some are even faulty and don't make a proper connection causing noisy power lines and a failed supply of power to the car.
Another issue is the location of the batteries, normally tucked away hidden under the car. You need to lift up the car, turn it on the side, and replace the batteries, this can cause damage to the car, and especially for those who have it in a display case, meaning you need to keep opening up the display cabinet to change batteries.
So, what's this mod all about?
A good strong solid power supply giving 5v, and a current supply of 4 Amps for those of you that don't know 4 amps is more power than a conventional USB charger at most they offer 1amp.
We will not need anywhere near 4 amps, but we have it, and it's best to have more than not enough.
Mods need power. And with future issues such as roof lights, And other mods that we alone are making, we have to consider if they are ALL ON THE SAME TIME.
Batteries will only. work for so long before they need replacing.
So what’s in the box?
5v 4amp power supply, with international attachments. Which has a lead of 1.5 meters. Yes, it works in your country. And no, you won't need a plug adaptor. That's Great did you just say. A smile on your face. That's right. 😊
You will also get an additional 3-meter extension cable for all of you who have a plug that's tucked away and just need that extra space. YES, 3 METERS. Good news if you want to make it longer let us know it’s possible. No loss of power too.
replacement switch, this goes inline with the power mod, to replace the horrible little switch under the car.
You will receive the main important part that goes into the car, the harness, this harness has 2 features that Eaglemoss's cable does not.
Power to the front and back of the car. including the power to the roof, Mods that need power to the dashboard or front of your car will now have a cable ready. The radio scanner is an example of power needed at the front, No more long power cables to the car.
Additional power leads at the back. No more extension leads. It’s there for you. Arduino lovers u have more power links. 😊
WAIT. Do I have to take my car apart??
Well yes, kind of you do. unless you have just started the build then no.
But understand this, the car technically comes in 3 parts. A bottom frame with all the wires. The center parts with the oscilloscope, Gerney rails etc. and then the top metal frame.
This mod took takes all of 10 minutes to do, you need is an 8mm drill bit and it's that's easy...
Making this mod available for everyone is better. And ensures our mods and others, will give you the power you need now and later.

You’re not just buying a product, you’re buying a piece of magic to bring your model to life and I bring that very unique and personal service to you. when you shop with me you deal only with me, from start to finish right up to the packaging and shipping.
When you order my mods, you can be confident that every thought has gone into them from the initial design right up to the final manufacture and packaging.
The equipment I use is of the highest quality from my printers right down to the temperature-controlled soldering iron and electrical test equipment, and because electronics are involved safety is my upmost priority, all my circuit boards are tested vigorously for long periods of time before they are sent out.
Although I already make certain electronic mods, I do have customers requesting to customise certain mods, such as a wire harness, or a complete wireless system, which I am more than happy to do, and because I make everything myself quality control is very high.
You know, there should be an award for what you and Corrie are doing. You’re really breaking new ground in the modeling industry. There may be the unique modeler who can customize a kit, but you’re allowing the average modeler to have something truly special. We’ve been modeling for close to 60 years, and have never seen anything like it. The complexity, attention to detail and quality in design and materials goes so far above and beyond that we are just in awe. Kudos to those of you who are producing these outstanding mods. Hope and Mike
Every mod I’ve bought from ModelModz, and I’ve bought almost all of them, has been great. The quality and attention to detail of each mod is superb. Corrie and Chloe’s customer care is second to none and they always add that personal touch.
What chloe & corrie have done is truly breathtaking to be able to make these mods with the attention to detail that they put into every design is only matched by the quality of the products they produce.
I was blown away when my first mod arrived and it makes my model special and full of life and all this is from two people!! Modelmodz have made it so we can have the authentic models we always dreamed of and are breaking new grounds in the modelling world Thank you chloe and corrie
Modelmodz is what I consider to be the pinnacle of quality and innovation when it comes to upgrades for the Eaglemoss DeLorean. Every piece offered is designed with astonishing attention to detail which is a true reflection of the passion and care each of the creators have for their work.
Hi, I'm Chloe the creator of what you see here today.
I have been building models for some time now, and realised that most models on the market seem to be in-accurate or just need that little bit of magic to make them come to life, that’s why I decided to create and setup this shop you see today.
I offer bespoke modifications for models of all types including those you see in my shop, I can tailor my products to your individual needs. Everything you see in my shop is unique and personal, and if there is something you need, and I don’t have it, I’m sure I can help you.
