Yes, another surprise release is this Land Rover Defender from CR, from the early scene where Le Chiffre meets Obanno in Africa.  The Landy looks a little too clean for that diorama, though - that's going to need some mud added!

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Hi, first time posting, long time lurker to this thread. I've been collecting this collection from the first one and I look forward to looking in here for glimpse of future models. Thanks to those finding out the info.

With regards to the T55 tank and little Nellie, I've got a couple of ideas. I'm sure like others, I've been wondering what to do with them and how can I get them in cases with a background like the others. I'm thinking of playing with the image below in Photoshop to remove Nellie to create a background and I think I'll order a second Land Rover Defender for a sandy effect base and just replace the name.

Now the tank is going to be a more creative. When I saw the Volga model, I had an idea. I'm thinking of looking out for a long display case the same width as the rest of the models. A case for a 1:43 lorry or something, just for the cover. Now I'm thinking of getting an additional 3x Volga models for the bases and cut the ends off and glue together (keeping hole in middle for a screw) and fill between the gaps with filler and paint to match and blend in. This hopefully would give the correctish base and cut to length to fit underneath the long case. This does sound a bit expensive and a long way round, but could look good when done, hopefully. I just need to work out the background to wrap around it.

Anyone else has any other ideas or am I on the right path? I know nothing about modifying models or the case bases, but these two models have been bugging me for not being the same as the rest of this great collection. There has been some great homemade modifying of models in the thread previous. I just hope the Dragon tank comes with a case.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

I'm with you Lester, this site has inspired me to start some custom stuff of my own. I just ordered an Alpha and DBS to create the QOS chase scene. I am also working on an extended OHMSS ice race scene.

Where do you get the photos (like the Little Nellie shot) to make the backdrops?

Good luck with your projects. I will post mine when they are done

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Gentlemen!

If i recall right someone here at AJB made some very nice backrounds for T-55 and Little Nellie.

Unfortunately can't remember his screenname, but i do recall that he posted to this topic last year.


Best Regards,

Teppo


Just did some research and found this album for you guys:

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Thanks for tracking those down, Teppo ajb007/smile

Fortunately there are several diorama bases that are a plain road surface that can be adapted for the Little Nellie scene - the MGB, the MP Lafer and the Range Rover Sport (CR) are all on more or less the same diorama.

ak007 also made some interesting diorama backgrounds back then.  Any new projects of late, ak007 ?

Really dont have much time at the moment to be doing anything else (Dr No tank wise). Plus i no longer have photoshop. :(
i would think that the dragon would fit in one of the largerboxes, Moonbuggy style.

The man your after is TONY_ERICSSON  http://s676.photobucket.com/albums/vv126/TONY_ERICSSON/
unfortunatly he no longer posts on this site.

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

Why should it end? Let them release what they can and pick up what interests you. You don't have to collect the entire series.

Yes I do. I Would have to be an idiot to stop after 3 years of collecting them. If i had known from the start that it would have been this long then i may well have just got the 'best bits'

You clearly aren’t a collector ajb007/tongue

I would love there to be a collection just like this one but for TV/Film cars in general, then i could pick the best bits! ajb007/biggrin

Re: James Bond Car Collection - Questions and praise

The Renault Fuego has a neat diorama, which is the attraction for me with this issue, not the model itself which has been covered by other diecast manufacturers (most recently Minichamps).  I'll probably buy a couple duplicates of this one from the newsagent when it comes out, just for that diorama.  A few of my Minichamps & Vanguards 1/43 models have already found homes on spare JBCC dioramas.

Seeing as this collection is now definitely extended, I'm holding thumbs for the TWINE Lada Niva still making it into the collection ajb007/smile

Sorry to ask this, but where did you get the list from? When I contact Fabbri, they have no idea what’s what with this collection.
I rely on this forum for updates, but this list seems a bit bizarre to say the least!
The Parahawk!
The rest I can just about get as they have wheels of a kind. (The Hovercraft goes over the road like the Q boat) but the parahawk? or am I being realy thick!

Interesting list - the cars are OK but I personally have no interest in the Parahawk or the Osprey Hovercraft in the context of this collection.  What's next, the cello from TLD ?? ajb007/insane

I must agree, by Ford Anglia, it must mean the Sunbeam Alpine surely? I dont remember a Anglia.
I don't want to put anyone down, but I'm a little skeptical about this one, could it be another Wikipedia list?

And I think the jury is still out on the Q boat & Dr No tank as extras or not.
