How Rolls-Royce's mascot is made

This is from Yahoo Finance's page:

How the old girl is made today.

So how do they do it?
The story goes:

Then it's melted before it's poured into a form:

Wax forms are finished in batches for the mould process. The 'Lost Wax Process'.

And the end result:

Eleanor lives on forever. Charles Sykes would be proud.
