The staff . . . continues to debate which Ecto-1 version is superior.

With the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 model kit, AMT continues to build upon its reputation of releasing high-quality model kits featuring vehicles from film and TV. Modelers will appreciate the attention to detail placed into the model kit, while film buffs will certainly have feelings of nostalgia during assembly.

While the Ecto-1A is the vehicle from Ghostbusters II, the kit offers all of the equipment, decals, and appropriate notes in the instruction manual to build the version of the Ecto Cruiser from the first film as well. Molded in white and clear, the AMT model kit features recessed panel lines on its chassis that accurately represents the 1959 ambulance body used in both films. There is no engine to assemble, but interior parts include a cell phone and CRT screen.

Finer details include the full array of ghost busting equipment on the vehicle’s roof rack, and the Ecto-1A even has decals for the digital sign. With the number of unique options available in the AMT model kit, such as the different equipment and the somewhat cheesier “no-ghost” logo used in the second movie, the staff at continues to debate which Ecto-1 version is superior.
