Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Yep... sorry... I meant issues 6 and 7.

It's been about a month since I received the last package so I reckoned that the next lot should be due about now.

Thanks for the update.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I wanna see the black BMW E28 police cars chasing Bond at the end of Octopussy because I own an E28 ///M535i and models of E28s are very thin on the ground.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

recieved issue 6 and 7 the other day, both great models. still waiting for issue 4 and 5 tho. just want to know what is everyone doing with the free models that have no cases, like little nellie and the GE tank? cos i don't wanna take em out of the packaging until i have somewhere to store it ajb007/martini

38

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I'm still waiting for issues 2 and 3 and little nellie. I have left the tank in the packaging. It's not very impressive tbh.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Just to add an extra twist to this thread (possibly concerning the "undioramaed" Little Nellie and Goldeneye Tank models):

The original subscription form with Issue 1 also contained a little piece of small print that was below the bit you filled in if you wanted to pay by credit card:

"From time to time we may publish special issues of the James Bond Car Colection. These special issues will automatically be sent and charged to you. Tick here if you do want to receive the special issues automatically."

Now, some Ebay sellers have shown Little Nellie on a wooden display stand. So is that we might get with the special issues?

Hmmm another one to chew over...

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I have just today received advice that I'm getting sent a complete replacement first delivery (issues 2 + 3 + Little Nellie and I don't have to return anything) because I complained about the cracked diorama case I got for issue 2. So it looks like I'm gonna have some spare diorama cases or at the very least some extra models to sell on eBay :-)

41

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Just picked up issue 7 with the Toyota 2000GT and again, a wonderful model for the money.

42

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I still haven't received issues 2 and 3 or little nellie. Yet I have received all others. Think I need to give them a ring.

43

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I can't believe they would bring out another little nellie. But I thought the whole idea was those were free gifts. I don't mind paying for a few extras but if the collection increases to lots more then I may struggle to keep paying for ever!

On another note, issues 2,3,4 came today with little nellie so I am upto date. For some reason these came in a plastic bag not the box which I have been getting. Thankfully the models and magazine were fine. The folder for the magazines had sacrificed itself to save them. Hope we are back to the box for the next installment.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

i think sum of the cars that we are scheduled to get in the future are just gap cars. i think they couldnt decide on any more cars to put in so just picked out sum crap ones which no one really wants!   wot u guys reckon?

45

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Has anyone received issues 8 and 9 yet? The       Lotus Esprit Turbo from For Your Eyes Only and the BMW Z3 from GoldenEye? I was debited two weeks ago...nothing yet.

I think the wooden-display-stand-mounted Little Nellies up for grabs on eBay were personally modified by someone with creative carpenting skills...not necessarily an automatically-charged-special-issue.

Someone asked earlier about any results ive had with making my own dioramas for the tank and Little Nellie....my diabolical plan has faced its first roadblock: cant seem to think where i can find a diorama case large enough for the tank.

As for the rest of it, perhaps a google image searched scene, or a scene image captured from the film in question (there are media editing software which do that) printed on photo paper would suffice as a backdrop?

How about then going creative with a few of those scenery accessories from those model shops to mimic the scenes the tank and copter featured in?

Clearly a project for someone with more time on their hands........

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I've been charged but only about a week ago. Not received them yet.

47

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

The ones I ordered on back issue took a little while. I noticed the lotus is in the shops atm.
